Schoolcraft wrestlers have been able to hit the mats finally, with their first contest Feb. 13 at the Allegan Quad match including Fennville and Coldwater. The Eagle grapplers were able to come away the first match of the season 3-0, posting wins against host Allegan 63-18, Coldwater 60-18 and Fennville 69-12. Four days later, they headed south to Constantine to compete against the hosting Falcons, Gobles and Fennville. Again, the Eagles posted wins against Fennville 66-18 and Gobles 70-11.
On the 20th, the Eagles made their way to Bronson High school gym to face off against the hosting Vikings and Bucks from Buchanan. After suffering the first loss of this shortened season to the Vikings, 38-58, they were able to bounce back and post a lopsided win against Buchanan 54-9, giving the Eagles a 6-1 record so far. The Eagles will be on the road again Feb 24th at Lawton High school against the Blue Devils and Rams of Galesburg. New guidelines for this season have the wrestlers able to compete twice a day. The Eagles’ next events will be in Delton, Parchment and Gull Lake before districts start March 17.
