The Mountain Home Flyers youth wrestling team competed in Russellville on Saturday at the “Rippin’ Up The Mat” tournament.
The Flyers were pleasantly surprised at the quality and experience of the competitors. Focusing on one match at a time, the Flyers steadily pushed themselves and it paid off by winning numerous medals and building a name in the youth wrestling circuit as a force to be reckoned with.
Flyers competing were: Steven Sturges (third place, Division 1, 50 pounds), Joseph Pierski (third, quickest pin in 12 seconds, Div. 3, 74 pounds), Austin Callies (third, Div. 3, 80 pounds), Thomas Jone (second, Div. 3, 95 pounds), Brandon Wheat (first, Div. 3, 120 pounds), and Lawson Stockton (Div. 4, 90 pounds).
