Plymouth competes at Arcadia

The Plymouth High School varsity wrestling team competed at the Arcadia invite over the weekend. Placing for the Big Red were Cordell Sipe 4th at 120, Jacob Echelbarger 6th @126, Luke Cox 6th @138, Josh Dove 4th @160, Tony Vazquez 6th @170.

“Overall I feel like we have some work to do compared for the next meet,” Plymouth wrestling coach Jeremiah Balkin said. “Arcadia was a step up from Hillsdale, but some of kids did not have their best weekend. We need to go back to the drawing board and fix our mistakes, but I am optimistic that we can. It is early in the year and there is some work to be done. I think when we eventually get everyone back and full strength it will help. Josh has a good meet and lost to close matches losing to nail biters. He has a few things to correct and some mental mistakes, but there is no doubt he will. Cordell has another solid weekend and gutted through a muscle pull to get 4th.”

The Big Red are back in action on Wednesday at home against Madison.
