WRESTLING: Back-to-back: After win at Eisenhower Friday, Warren tops Central Tech at home
Coming off an emotional win at Eisenhower on Friday, Warren dominated Central Tech – giving up only one match – with a 72-6 win on Saturday at Warren Area High School.
Warren coach Glen Baldensperger was proud of his team and the “good matchups” throughout. “Nate Park had a big win,” said Baldensperger.
Baldensperger added Park’s pin started the ball rolling – with seven of nine individual victories via pin. The rest of the afternoon was obviously dominated by Warren, and most matches only lasted the first period.
Blake Ristau (120) stuck it out with his opponent into overtime and secured a pin in the final seconds of the match.
“(Ristau’s match) eventually paid off,” said Baldensperger.
Nick Desimone (145) also experienced one of the fuller duels of the day, as he bumped up weight to secure a decision for Warren, which wrestles at McDowell on Tuesday before the District 10 Class AAA Championships Friday and Saturday at Central Tech High School.
