The varsity Greyhounds won twice in a home match last week but didn’t fare as well in the Shamrock Scuffle hosted by Dublin High School on Saturday.

“We had two wrestlers sit out because of injuries, another two were at home sick, and another wrestler couldn’t be there. So we only had eight out of 14 weight classes filled,” coach Daniel Lewis said of the Dublin meet. “As a result, we finished ninth out of 12 teams. The one standout was Tim Randolph, who finished third at 113 pounds.”

In the home match last Tuesday, the Greyhounds downed Westside 48-30 and Rutland 42-36.

“We should be wrestling our best this time of the season, so the last two weeks have been frustrating,” Lewis said. “Between injuries and a stomach virus making its way through the team, we have not performed well for a couple of weeks now. Hopefully we can put those things behind us and have a positive two weeks of practice and competition leading into the region tournament.”

The Greyhounds were to wrestle Rutland and Crawford County at Rutland in Macon on Tuesday, then go to the Inferno Invitational in Elbert County on Saturday.
