Triangular – Boone Central and Wayne
The Plainview Pirate wrestling team competed in a triangular against Boone Central and Wayne on January 3, beating both teams.

“This was our best team effort of the season,” said Coach Dean Boyer. “The guys wrestled with a lot of confidence, which let us get a couple of wins against good competition.  The kids were tough and just outworked their opponents.   The dual with Boone Central ended in a tie, but the 5th tie breaker was which team won more matches.  We won seven and they won six to give us the win.   Wrestlers of the Boone Central Dual were Tanner Frahm and Wyatt Doerr.  Tanner beat their beat wrestler 14-7 and Wyatt simply out worked is opponent.”

Boyer said he chose “Wrestlers of the Wayne Dual” as Wyatt Doerr and Grayson Petersen.  “Both guys have improved a lot from last season and are believing they can win any match,” said Boyer.
