Swede wrestlers gain experience at two-day dual invite

Gothenburg wrestlers competed against nine other teams in the two-day Nebraska Dual Invite at Columbus last Friday and Saturday.

Over the two-day tournament Gothenburg finished fifth in its pool with a 3-7 record. Millard South went 10-0 and earned first in the pool.

Overall, head coach Tom Scott thought the Swedes wrestled well and said he was satisfied with the team’s aggressiveness in the majority of their matches.

Gothenburg collected a 3-2 record during the first five duals Friday.

“We had some good matchups in our favor,” Scott said. “We did a good job taking advantage of them.”

In the first day of action Gothenburg had defeated Malcolm 42-36, High Plains Community 48-27 and Field Kinley 48-30 while being defeated by Blue Valley West 57-24 and Millard South 74-6.

Scott said he was impressed with Tyler Miller who earned three pins in his first four matches.

Bryce Larson lost twice in day one but bounced back and won all five matches Saturday.

Skyler Kottwitz earned five victories Friday with a forfeit and four pins while Tyson Miller collected four wins by pin as well.

On Saturday, the Swedes hit a wall losing each of their five duals, although coach Scott said the team battled hard in their final two duals.

Gothenburg was defeated by Omaha Bryan 54-22, York 69-9, Norfolk 69-9, Neligh Oakdale 48-36 and Cozad 48-30.

There were some kids on the team that got some bumps and bruises, Scott said, but others stepped up and replaced them.

“Tournaments like this get a team prepared for districts and state,” Scott said. “Districts is a two-day tournament and if you make the third day at state, you medal.”

While its still early in the season, Scott said he recognizes the Gothenburg grapplers need to work on finishing and some techniques to make the team better.

“There is no giant answer to what is wrong,” Scott said. “It’s just a couple little things.”

Scott added the last two matches of the day were wrestled better and more competitive than the previous three on Saturday.

“The kids wrestled their guts out against Neligh and Cozad,” Scott said. “We have to get rid of the lull in the middle of the tournament.”

Kottwitz, who was ahead in the match he lost, led the Swedes with a 9-1 tournament record.

Larson, who wrestled up from 106 to 113- pounds, compiled a record of 8-2.

Tyson Miller finished with a 5-5 record, while Jayden Miller wrestled multiple weight classes and ended with a .500 record.

Scott said he expects those that are injured to be back in the lineup and healthy for a 16-team Valentine Invite Saturday.

He added the goal of this invite is for Swede wrestlers to compete equally hard in their first and last matches.

This tournament has district implications as well, with six teams from the District B-4 competing.

“The most important thing at this invite is us winning against district opponents for seeding at the district tournament,” Scott said. “If we can win head to head, that sets up well for us.”

Going into the meet, Scott said the Swedes will have a mentality of running the other wrestler off the mat, being aggressive.
