  • In a 61-12 loss to Marion on the wrestling mat late last week, Harrisburg head coach Greg Langley said that final tally isn’t a good indicator of the strides his team have made in a short period of time.
    “We wrestled a solid Marion club (Thursday) that returns a great deal of talent this season,” Langley said. “The score doesn’t always show the full picture. Yes, we lost, but I felt we did some good things in taking steps toward improving. Wrestling good competition is what makes you better and I felt we had some kids do just that. We looked better in the third period conditioning wise and seemed to step it up on producing offense. We still have a ways to go, but are at least headed in the right direction.”
    Of those picking up wins against Marion, Darren O’Dell (120 pounds) picked up an 8-1 win, while Tyler Sullivan (126) earned a 9-3 win. Mckenzie Alvey won at 285 pounds in a time of 5:52.
    The Harrisburg junior varsity team fell to 2-1 on the year with a 48-12 loss at Marion.
    Derek Rivers (120) picked up a forfeit win, while Nathan Abraham (170) earned a win at the 2:54 mark with a pin.
