Uninspired Tigers just playing out the string
No one can tell a tale of woe like a Missouri Tiger sports fan. And the current one is a doozy.
A big Linn crowd didn’t have a lot to cheer about in the first two quarters Wednesday night. The Wildcats got them on their feet in the final two periods. Down by 19 at the half to Father Tolton in a Class 2 sectional game at Fleming Fieldhouse, the Wildcats got things together in the final two quarters in a 69-49 loss to the Trailblazers.
Already down two starters, the California Lady Pintos probably didn’t think it could get any worse. Well, maybe it could.
Saturday at state wrestling
The better days may indeed be ahead for the Jefferson City Jays wrestling program. But the last three have been pretty good.
Wrestling lessons learned
The Helias Crusaders had just two wrestlers qualify for the Class 3 state tournament. But Nick Gaines and Jacob Schulte didn’t go through preparations alone last week.
Jacob Schulte did exactly what he needed to do.
It was an up-and-down opening day for the Jefferson City Jays. The ups were four Jays advanced to the quarterfinals with first-round victories Thursday night in the Class 4 state wrestling championships at Mizzou Arena. The downs were the other four Jays state qualifiers finished 0-2 and were eliminated from the tournament.
At Class 4 state wrestling tournament
If it isn’t broke, don’t fix it. This week’s Class 4 state tournament will bring a conclusion to one of the best seasons in the history of the Jefferson City Jays wrestling program. So don’t expect to see much different from the eight Jays qualifiers when the tournament starts today at 5 p.m. at Mizzou Arena.
Helias has two in Class 3 state wrestling tournament
Nick Gaines and Jacob Schulte just need to focus on what’s in front of them.
A piece of advice if you ever have the opportunity to walk into the Jefferson City Jays wrestling room before practice. Keep your head on a swivel.
