Red Raiders take down Swedes wrestlers in dual
Swede grapplers hosted a dual with the Sidney Red Raiders Friday and lost 46-32 in the opening meet of the season.
After one match, Dalton Sylvan recorded a pin and all looked in line for the Swedes in their first meet of the season.
Unfortunately, Sidney flipped momentum with two pins of its own on its way to a dual victory.
Head coach Tom Scott said he was pleased with how Gothenburg wrestled. Both the junior varsity and varsity matches finished evenly at 8-8.
“There were two good things that happened in our loss,” Scott said. “We wrestled with them and showed room for improvement.”
The young Swedes wrestled hard and got some surprising wins, Scott said.
Skyler Kottwitz, Tyson Miller and Dalton Sylvan all recorded pins in the dual.
The wrestlers travel to Columbus to compete in the Nebraska Dual Invite on Friday and Saturday.
