Wrestler Perform Well in Invitational
by Braden Geer
Last Friday and Saturday the Rockets hosted 23 teams for the 34th annual Rose Hill Invitational. Rose Hill placed 7th with a team score of 107.0, their highest placing in our invitational since the 2007 team placed 2nd. The Rockets saw shining moments from several wrestlers on the team. The Rockets came together for a combined score of 107 points even though they lacked wrestlers in three weight classes: 195 220 and 285. The team as a whole battled hard and gave a good performance in their home gym. Kyle Sackett took third going 4-1 on the weekend; he raised his season record to 30-5. Senior Matt Atkinson placed 4th with a record of 3-2. At 145 senior Ben Black took 4th with a record of 3-2. At 152 Grant Scheer placed 3rd with a record of 4-1; his season record is now 32-3. Sophomore David Leck took home 4th going 3-2 and improving his season record to 30-8. Senior Chase Thrush placed 3rd with a record of 4-1 improving his season record to 32-3. The Rockets will now prepare to host the Clearwater Indians in a duel on Thursday.
