It was a busy week for the Stanhope Elmore wrestling team. The team won two of three matches. In the first, the Mustangs whipped Opelika 45-24 with Travis Gartman (132 pounds) and Logan Smith (170 pounds) winning by pin. The Mustangs then defeated Hueytown 50-29 but recorded no pins in the match.
SEHS defeated Prattville Christian (PCA) 58-21. Winners by pin were: Ty Naquin (106), Josh Cherry, T.J. Burke (126), Brandon Householder (145), Jared Mercer (152), Malik Hibley (195).
The Mustangs then took on a tough Oak Mountain squad that proved to be better. Oak Mountain defeated the Mustangs 46-19. T.J. Burke (120 pounds) was the only Mustang to record a victory with a pin.
While the week was good for the Mustangs the team is still fighting nagging injuries. "We are hurting on injuries and can't quite field a full team. That's the reason our total scoring has dropped," SEHS coach Brian Bradford said. SEHS has so many injured that Bradford only took 9 wrestlers to the Barry Mask Tournament over this past weekeend.
SEHS stand at 22-16 for the entire season and the Mustangs are ready to host late season matches this week, including a match with Vestavia and then a 4-way match with Catholic, Lee and Smith Station coming to town on Thursday.
"The 4-way match will be our last prep before we go to the Sectional Tournament," Bradford said. The sectional will be February 7th. "We have a lot that may qualify for the State Tournament. Of course, injuries will have a lot to say about that, Bradford said.
SEHS has three wrestlers to exceed the lofty 30 win mark this year: Ty Naquin, T.J. Burke and Harry Walker.
Volunteers from the Auburn Montgomery Accounting Club move some materials into the house. Wanda Kraemer heads on organization called Veteran's Place that hopes to renovate the house and open it to up to five veteran's within the next year.
