SARATOGA – Things are looking good for the Big Piney High School wrestling program, as the team continues to pull solid results in competition late in the season. Last weekend, the Punchers ventured to Saratoga to compete in the Carbon County Invitational, where they earned 127.5 points to pick up a fourth-place finish out of 16 teams.
According to Piney coach Cole Clifford, he was pleased with how his team rebounded on Saturday following a rough showing Friday.
“I thought physically we did very well and saw a lot of good things, but on the first day, we had some key mental lapses that cost us some important matches,” he said. “We had several leads slip away in the final period, and at times, just were not consistent on the first day.
It wasn’t all bad news on Friday, the coach noted, as five wrestlers made it to the semifinals and two others made the consolation semifinals.
“We knew we had seven place winners at the end of the first day, but we also knew we could have had more,” Clifford said.
