WEATHERFORD —  

WHS boys — and girls — off to good start in 2012 wrestling season 

Staff Report

With the addition of Lady Roos to the Weatherford athletic programs, the girls’ team has already made   early positive impressions — and the boys’ varsity and JV teams are also making early strides.

At the Warrior Invitational held at Arlington Martin recently, Alan Prince won his division for the junior varsity boys, while Dakota West, Colton Sanders, Jacob Davis and Austin Foster all had third-place finishes.

Finishing fifth in a 12-team field at the Warrior Invitational, the varsity had seven wrestlers who placed fourth or better. Tyler McDonald took first in his division, with Nester Oviedo taking second in his classification. Fourth-place finishes included Tyler Tierce, Teancum Payne, Kason Bratcher, Daniel Santiago and  Ried Perkins.

The Weatherford girls competed at the Arlington High meet, with Taylor Marsh capturing first-place. Alena Kessler and Jade Stults each earned third place.

In a dual meet at home last week, the varsity boys beat Haltom, 48-33, before dropping their second team decision to Byron Nelson. The JV boys also took care of Haltom City by a 34-18 count, losing a closer set of matches to Nelson, 36-46.

The varsity girls displayed total dominance over both of the visiting teams, pinning opponents in each of their matches for a 54-0 shutout.

The boys’ teams have another dual scheduled for Tuesday at the Ninth-grade Center as they host Richland and Boswell, starting at 6 p.m. The girls will also wrestle on Tuesday against the Boswell team.

  • Summer athletic camps — July/August

    Staff Report

    Summer athletic camps become a bit more “meaningful” in the late days of July and into  August, at least for some high school and middle school athletes.

    In most cases, the youth football camps include grades 6 through 8, and though there is no contact involved, some of the instructors of he camp may be getting a preview of the talent coming their way in just a few short weeks.

    Team volleyball camps, stretching from grades 4 through 12, provides a segway for many of the campers who will soon be entering workouts for the impending volleyball season.
