Gillette/Sheridan Duals

28 January, 2012

Cheyenne, Wyoming

This was a long day at Cheyenne East High, consisting of
Varsity and Junior Varsity duals. In the morning, East wrestled
Gillette. In the afternoon, East wrestled Sheridan. Duals are
simple contests, and the winner is determined match-by-match.
The school with the most points wins the dual. Each wrestler
faces only one opponent, usually.

The entire JV lines up to watch...

It was a rough time for Cheyenne East. Gillette trounced us.
Eli didn't have a match for the Gillette dual. The Sheridan dual
was exciting and close. When all the points were counted, East
edged out a victory over Sheridan. Later, a technicality was discovered
which gave Sheridan the win by a point or two.

Too bad Mom can't be here!

I don't know about the wrestlers or the coaches at East, but I was
more than ready to see our school beat the pants off of Sheridan.
The bones of the 2011 state football championship are still fresh
in the elephant's graveyard of my mind!
