Due to illnesses, holiday absences and other reasons, only three schools participated in the annual tournament, forcing the coaches to shift from a dual team tournament to an individual format.
“We made the best of it we could,” Jones County coach Daniel Lewis said. “We had three teams cancel in the last 48 hours before the tournament. One team had been hit by the flu, and another, the coach’s father died and he was unable to bring his team. But we rearranged things and all of the kids who were there got to wrestle at least four matches. And this time of the year, the main thing you are looking for is mat time.”
Those medaling for the Greyhounds were Sherrod Shahid at 106 pounds, Tim Randolph at 113, Danny Williams at 126, Seth Killgo at 132, Daniel Curry at 182 and Scott Rooks at 220. Baldwin and Rutland were the other schools that participated.
The Greyhounds will be back in action at home on Saturday when they host the Region 2-AAAAA Duals at 10 a.m. in the high school gym.
