This past weekend the Lanier Wrestling Team went to battle at the Delco Center once more! This time at one of the best tournaments of the year in Texas… the CENTEX. This tournament is filled with some of the best this state has to offer!
The young boys and girls wrestling teams fought hard! The boys showed some serious growth from the first semester and continue to improve each day!
Senior Captain, Maykel Naranjo was the only placer for the boys and finished 5th. Maykel finished 5-2 this weekend, beating 2 returning state qualifers. Coach Summerfield said, “Maykel is really starting to turn the corner, one small adjustment here and there and Maykel finishes the day 6-1 and finishes 2nd. The sky is the limit for Maykel.”
The Lady Vikings continued there season Friday and Saturday at the CENTEX as well. The Lady Vikings showed some rust, but battled tough. The Lady Vikings finished 8th in the tournament, a bit disappointing for what we have become accustomed too.
There were some Lady Vikings who performed well. Isabella Llamas and Angie Miranda both finished 2nd for the day and lost tough matches in the finals. Both girls may have wrestled the best they have all year!
Coach Summerfield said, “The girls battled today, some really represented the black and gold well, but as a whole a few of us did not show up ready to wrestle. I can tell you that will NOT happen again. ”
This week the Vikings will host their final home dual of the year on Wednesday at 6:30pm. The Vikings wrestle Austin High School and Leander Glenn.
Come out and support your Vikings! See ya’ll Wednesday.
