Four Greensburg Recreation wrestlers traveled to Cimarron on Feb. 19. Mason Dean experienced an amazing day as he wrestled in two different divisions to get more experience. In the 8&U 88lb division Dean brought home 1st place. Dean grabbed a second medal by placing 2nd in the 10&U 85lb division.
“Very few wrestlers double-dip, as we call it, and Mason has done it twice this season,” said Greensburg Rec. Wrestling Coach Shawn Cannon. “However, it is very rare that a wrestler double-dipping places so high in both age divisions. You have to remember that he could actually be wrestling some 11-year olds in the upper age division. He had a great day.”
Caydan Pore took 4th in the 8&U 58lb class. Connor Pore, who participated in the 8&U 49lbs, and Ashlind Gumpenberger, who participated in the10&U 67lbs also participated at Cimarron. Up next for the wrestling team is Ellsworth on Feb. 25, followed by Hays on March 3 and then qualifying for Kids State Wrestling Championships begin March 10. CPore@kcmh.net
