Dave Scharberg Memorial Tournament
The Bears then went on to go 3-0 to win the Dave Scharberg Memorial Tournament in Byron this past weekend. The Bears were celebrating 50 Years of Byron Wrestling as well on the day of the tournament recognizing past wrestlers, coaches, and managers.
"Overall these past couple weeks we wrestled fairly well," said head coach Ryan Radke. "We had some ups and downs and had many learning opportunities. We're a young team and need to keep having these kids from making basic mistakes. That's the only thing that has hurt us but the season is early. We'll focus on getting better every day and keep preparing for the end of the season."
Bears defeat Triton
In their most recent dual, the Bears defeated Triton 60-9, Dec. 14, in Byron.
"We've had a couple good weeks of wrestling and was nice to get a home win," Radke said. "Triton has several guys out so we received a lot of forfeits but we had lots of JV matches and our youth program wrestled that night so was a great night of wrestling. We get a weekend of to help recover and get ready for Stewartville at home next Thursday."
Winning the Varsity Hammer was Kyle Stahler and for JV Wyatt Nemecheck.
