Mustangs earn home title
December 19, 2013 · Crystal Eskelsen
The Mount Vernon wrestling team hosted the 12-team Mount Vernon Invitational Saturday, and after leading the team score for most of the day the Mustangs managed to edge Independence for the title.
Mount Vernon earned the team title with 220 points, while the Mustangs of Independence finished second with 216.5.
It was close all the way to the end. Mount Vernon was helped into the lead by Josh Cannon's championship win at 220 pounds and Independence's loss at 285 pounds against West Liberty.
Cannon was Mount Vernon's only individual champion, pinning his way through three matches for the title.
Mustang Trey Ryan, Class 2A, No. 2 at 170 pounds, lost 3-1 in sudden death in the finals to West Marshall's Dale Hilleman, Class 1A, No. 3 at 170.
Several other Mustangs were in the finals, finishing in second place. They included Luke Muller (126), Charlie Engelbrecht (132), Ryan Muller (138) and John Engelbrecht (145).
The Mustangs also had a dual with Class 2A, No. 5 West Delaware last week and fell to the Hawks, 43-21. That same night, the Mustangs topped DeWitt Central 51-15.
Mount Vernon wrestles tonight (Thursday, Dec. 19) at Solon. Saturday they are at Iowa City Regina Invite.
