Sunday, January 11, 2004

DELTA, Mo. -- Delta's girls basketball team overcame 53 points by top-seeded Twin Rivers' Amanda Lance to win the Delta New Year's Tournament 81-69 on Saturday.

Lance, who finished the tournament with 118 points, was the only scorer in double figures for Twin Rivers.

In the third-place game Chaffee (5-6) beat Woodland 52-41. Kegan Orr led the Red Devils with 13 points and Mallory Kiefer had 10.

Courtney Glastetter led Woodland with 15 points.

WRESTLING

Marquette Invitational

Central went 2-2 in pool play and finished third in its pool at the Marquette Mustang Invitational.

Central won duels against Soldan and Mehlville and lost against Liberty and Eureka. Due to injuries, the Tigers were wrestling with four open slots, the equivalent of giving each team a 24-0 lead before wrestling a single match.

"The kids wrestled really well," Central coach Josh Crowell said.

Central's Chris Griffith (103) and Jonathan Poston (125) each finished second with records of 4-1 at the tournament. Wrestlers finishing in the top four medaled for the tournament.

Matt Latham finished 4-1 at 119 and placed third. Dan Coonce (135) and Jason Poole (189) each finished in fourth with 3-2 records. Tyler Yeargain and Josh Smoot placed sixth and Garret New and John Moseby placed seventh.

Other events

  • Central's junior-high "A" team defeated Poplar Bluff 44-41 to improved to 7-1. Shane Nolen led Central with 14 points and Garrett Stevens added 11. Behind 21 points by Adrian Cox, Central won the "B" game 41-39.

    Jackson's JV wresling squad featured five individual champions in a seven-team meet it hosted on Saturday. Champions for Jackson were Josh Conklin (130), Jordan Barnhart (140), Blake Gorton (145), Anthony Werner (152) and Drew Lowes (189).
