FREMONT — Mason County Central’s wrestling team opened its season Wednesday night with a quad meet at Fremont and lost to Jenison, 45-21 and Montague, 45-35.

The Spartans had six open weight classes, and thus started out each match giving up 30 points.

“But the kids we put on the mat wrestled well tonight,” Spartan head coach Trim Kendel said. “I was happy that I saw good things out of every kid, and saw potential to improve a lot throughout the season. We are starting in a pretty good spot individually.”

Senior heavyweight Andrew Quinn and freshman 112-pounder Hunter Sandford started very strong. Both wrestlers dominated their opponents, scoring several takedowns from a variety of positions.

Quinn finished with two falls, and Sanford recorded a fall and a technical fall.

Zane McCabe, a sophomore 125-pounder, and freshman 103-pounder Nyvaeh also won both of their matches. McCabe bumped up in weight and won a tough match against Jenison.

The Spartans also had single match wins from senior 189-pounder Raiden Keefer and sophomore 119-pounder Aiden Hirschfield as well as Ethan Horacek and Issac Prine.

Mason County Central hosts the Optimist Invitational on Saturday.
