Comet wrestling drops five matches in tournament

SoVaNow.com / December 13, 2018
Halifax County High School wrestling dropped five matches in action Saturday at the Jordan Amos tournament.

Liberty defeated the Comets, 54-24. Bassett also downed Halifax, 49-30. Hargrave Military Academy soundly defeated Halifax, 51-18. Cary Academy rolled past Halifax, 54-24. Bartlett-Yancey downed Halifax, 35-24.

Comet coach David Riddle sought a stronger finish.

“As a team we were certainly hoping for better results. We were giving up a few more weight classes to our opponents due to injuries and a few wrestlers being out, but we still had some opportunities to pick up some team wins.

“We fought hard but just couldn’t pick up the key wins that we needed in the right situations,” said Riddle.

“On the individual side we had a pretty solid day. To have four of our six starters finish with winning records, and everyone pick up at least win says a lot for how hard those that we are putting on that mat are working.

“The big thing right now is to cut down on the small mistakes. We need to focus on what we are doing in the practice room on that mat. Many of our wrestlers are new and are showing a lot of positive signs at practice, but are simply making mental errors when they get on the mat or are overthinking things.

“We will use this as a learning tool both from the things that went right and those that didn’t,” said Riddle.
