Wrestlers Compete At Abilene, Burlington
The Council Grove Braves Wrestling team was in action this weekend, with the girls’ squad competing on Friday at Abilene and the team competing at Burlington on Saturday.
Hayvin Thornhill and Abby Allen competed on Friday at the Abilene Girls Wrestling Tournament, with both wrestlers walking away with medals. Thornhill was 2-0 at 109 pounds, while Allen was 1-2 in her bracket, placing third.
“Both girls wrestled well,” said Coach Jay Doornbos. “Abby was actually leading in both matches she lost. Both girls outscored their opponent by a wide margin. We just have a few mistakes to fix so that we finish off those matches that we lost.”
Thornhill and Allen were joined by teammate Kayla Railsback on Saturday at the Burlington Girls Tournament. Coach Doornbos said, “While none of the Braves placed in this tournament, there were bright spots. We continue to build leads in matches, but need to avoid mistakes late in matches that cost us.”
