WARRENSBURG - Burgher Wrestler Noah Davis sacrificed his own record in an attempt to secure a win for his wrestling team, his coach said Monday.
The last wrestler to take the mat in a meet Dec. 10 against Corinth, Davis needed a pin and not merely a decision for the Warrensburg team to win the matchup, Burgher coach Mark Trapasso said.
"Noah had a four-point lead late in his match and he could have hung on for a win," Trapasso said. "Instead, to help the team he took risks to try to get a pin - it was unselfish on his part."
In this 130-pound contest, Davis ended up losing 18-13 in overtime, and Warrensburg lost 42-33.
Warrensburg wrestlers earning pins in the meet were Cole Tennant in 65 seconds at 145 pounds, Logan Rock in 5:33 at 215 pounds, Colin Campbell in 27 seconds at 285 pounds, Donovan Santisteban in 56 seconds at 119 pounds, and Logan Winter in 65 seconds at 125 pounds.
Winning a 5-4 decision was Abby Roth at 113 pounds, scoring a reversal to win in the last 15 seconds,
Maintaining unbeaten season records were Tennant, Rock, and Roth.
Trapasso said the meet against Corinth was competitive and provided suspenseful action for the fans.
"We wrestled tough," he said, noting that next up for the team is the Granville Tournament, featuring a lineup of small-school teams.
Noting the team's recent third-place showing in the Saranac Tournament, Trapasso predicted the Burghers would perform well at Granville.
"We should be competitive," he said.
