Hello Marietta Wrestling fans!
Nov 20, 2013 – Welcome to the 2013 season!  Tonight we opened up the varsity season against Pebblebrook at home.  It was an overwhelming defeat of the Falcons with the varisty running up a 75-0 score.  Personally, I don’t ever remember attending a Marietta wrestling match with that high margin of victory.  With 14 weight classes, the most possible points is 14 x 6= 84 points which takes everyone pinning their opponent.  Tonight, we had 8 pins, 4 forfeits, one decision and neither team fielded a 106.  So, of the 78 possible points, we scored 75 of them.  Pretty impressive.

Just prior the varsity match, the two JV wrestlers that Pebblebrook fielded were defeated in succession by Aymar Whitsett and Earl McKinney.  Aymar wrestled a tough gal and defeated her 10-3.  Earl wrestled well and scored a 7-0 decision.   
Captains for the match were Brad King, Jonathan Gates, Isaiah Borne and Brandon Hill.  We began wrestling at 182 lbs with Dalton Brans getting one of 4 forfeits of the night.  Next up, Andres McClesh (195) and Isaiah Borne (225) both had 1st period pins.  Isaiah, a State Qualifier from last year with an impressive record, had the tougher of the two matches and worked hard to score his pin.  Brandon Hill, one of our returning region champions at 285 lbs got a forfeit finishing out the heavy weights.

Neither team fielded a 106 and Jason Caldwell got the forfeit at 113 lbs.  Next up was Jelani Miller who battled fiercely at 120lbs. He rode his opponent out at the end of the match and scored the 7-5 decision.   At 126 lbs Abraham Leon scored the last forfeit of the night.  Brad King, another Region Champion, was up next at 132 lbs and scored the fastest pin of the night taking 14 seconds to pin his Falcon.   Following Brad was Caleb Evans at 138 lbs who took only 1 minute longer to pin his opponent.  Then Kevin Ojiagbaje got his first MHS varsity pin late in the first period.

As the points continue to roll up, Alex Ambio our 152 lb Devil took the mat and in just over a minute he pinned his opponent in a very methodical, python like fashion.  Watch out for this guy; he will bring home some hardware this season!  Max Boose at 160lbs, had little difficulty with his opponent scoring another 1st period pin.  At 170lbs Jonathan Gates finished out the match by running up the score and almost scoring a technical fall before pinning his man late in the 2nd period.

Go Blue Devils!
