Okoboji Coach Nate Dau:
We wrestled extremely aggressive tonight against Central Lyon and West Lyon. Our conditioning was on point and we controlled matches very well. We have 4 open weights currently which is a hard hole to dig out of. But our kids battled hard all night. Some of the standout performances tonight were Dominick Tiitus at 2-0 with two solid performances. Riley Anderson was also 2-0 and beat two very good kids. Riley is a kid that works hard all year round in the weight room and other sports and it's finally starting to click for him. He has been a great leader this year as well. Colbin Larue also went 2-0 on the night and is dangerous every second he's on the mat. Matt Eckard continues to drive us nuts with some of the things he does during matches. We think he does it to make matches more interesting i suppose. However he somehow manages to get out of bad positions. He has great balance and mat awareness not to mention he's extremely competitive.. Isiah Huey went 0-2 for us tonight but battled through a very grueling match with one of Central Lyon's better kids and fought off his back without giving up the pin. This weekend we are at Britt for a very tough tournament before we hit Christmas Break.
