South Putnam splits varsity, junior varsity wins

The South Putnam High School varsity wrestling team grabbed a win Thursday, defeating Rockville, 72-6.

The Eagles only wrestled four matches and won them all with a pin. The match started with 145-pound class and so did the Eagles momentum. Jacob Parish took down his opponent and pinned him for the Eagles first win while Jon Parker stepped up next in the 152-pound class and won with a pin.

Jacob Snellenburger won the 275-pound class with another pin in less than a minute. Bo Jackson won the Eagles last match of the night with a pin in the 140-pound class.

In junior varsity action, the Eagles lost to North Montgomery 60-22.

The Eagles picked up four wins in their match. Hank Goldman won the 145-pound class with a pin and got things started for the Eagles. Eric Hunter followed up Goldman's win with one of him own in the 119-pound class. He pinned his opponent in 1:59.

Kody Terry won the 171-pound class with an 8-0 decision, and Hank Goldman wrapped things up for the Eagles with a win in 145-pound class.

"It was nice to pick up a win tonight," SPHS Coach Scott Miller said. "We showed considerable improvement since the start of the season. We still have a great deal to work on in order to compete at a higher level and succeed against strong competition."
