ELC finishes third at home duals

January 24, 2014
By David Swartz - Managing Editor , Estherville News

Seniors Oscar Ramirez (132) and Blake Gjerde (152/160) both went 5-0 on Saturday's ELC Tournament as they helped the Midgets to a third-place finish.

Senior Billy Snyder (170) and junior Chase Bonner (220) both went 4-1 on the day.

"I was pleased with how tough our guys wrestled," said ELC coach Dan Hewitt. "Five matches are a lot for a high school kid. I'm pleased at how touch we were wrestling at the end of the day."

ELC defeated Spirit Lake Park 51-18, lost to Blue Earth Area (Minn.) 60-14, defeated Forest City 45-30, lost to Linn-Mar 45-27 and defeated Bishop Heelan 53-30.

"Again I was pleased with how tough we were wrestling at the end of the day. 3-2 was about what I expected-but I was hoping for more. The Linn-Mar match was closer than anticipated."

Ramirez, ranked first in Class 2A, often receives forfeits in dual meets. On this day, he wrestled five matches with three pins, a technical fall and an 8-5 decision over Linn-Mar's Johnny Clymer.

"Oscar had some sketchy moments, but it was good to see him get five matches," said Hewitt.

Gjerde wrestled at 160 against Spirit Lake Park and came up with a 6-2 decision over David Trucksess. He also had a touch 4-3 decision over BEA's Luke Schavey and a 7-0 decision against Linn-Mar's Matt Schlegel along with a technical fall and one pin.

Snyder's lone loss came against BEA's David Franta, by fall in 3:29. Snyder edged Spirit Lake's Javier Tapia 8-4 and had three pins on the day.

Bonner's lone loss came against Bishop Heelan's Christian Brobst. Brobst, ranked third at 195 pounds won bay fall in 1:29 over Bonner.

"That was a better match than the stats would indicate. There was a takedown and a reversal and some back points," said Hewitt. "But once a kid like that has you, there's not much you can do."

Juan Castro (113) and Jake Bortvit (182/195) both went 3-2 on the day. Zack Snyder (1060), Easton Gifford (120), Clay Budach (126), Thomas Bortvit (138), Cole Budach (145) and Austin Egeland (182/195) all went 2-3 on the day while Kelly Clbaugh (152/160) was 1-4.
