EVANSTON — The Red Devils wrestlers had a conference dual at Rock Springs on Wednesday evening, Jan. 16, coming just short of the Tigers by three, 36-39.
The Red Devils gave up six points in forfeits at both 126 and 190 pounds. Both teams had six wins, discounting the forfeited classes, but the Red Devils won all of their matches by pin, scoring more points.
Connor Martin stepped in at 170 pounds for the injured Will Kishpaugh, who is ranked in the 4A top-five, by WyoWrestling.com. But Evanston lost no ground, as Martin stuck Brad Bell.
At 160 pounds, the Red Devils’ Brayton Sanders is out with illness, at last report, but will hopefully return to the line-up for this weekend’s Tiger-Grizz, one of the toughest tournaments the Red Devils will attend, hosted by Skyline and Idaho Falls high schools this weekend.
