MOUNT MARKHAM – The Sherburne-Earlville wrestling squad traveled to Mount Markham high school Jan. 23, on a mission to take home the title, and they did just that as they went 5-0 at the duel meet tournament.
The Mustang Duels in 2016, was coordinated to be a 6-team round robin type tournament.
“We had some really good duel meets, some of kids haven’t had a lot of experience so a lot of them got their first and second wins for the team,” said Sherburne coach Brian Hicks.
The tournament consisted of six teams: Sherburne-Earlville, Poland, Mount Markham, APW/Pulaski, Otselic Valley and Unadilla Valley.
Hicks noted that due to having the most complete lineups, Sherburne was matched up against Poland to finish the day of wrestling out. When S-E matched up against Poland both S-E and Poland were undefeated on the day, both at 4-0. The Marauders would come away victorious winning, 54-21.
