WHS wrestlers dominate at Tri-Meet

Weatherford High School's boys and girls varsity and junior varsity wrestlers “dominated” in last week’s Tri-Meet showdown against Haltom and Paschal.


Despite having to give up three weight classes to Haltom, the boys came out ahead, 48-33. This is the seventh consecutive year the Roos have defeated Haltom. Wins came from Nate Moore, Alan Prince, Travis Prince, Zach Watson, Christopher Sones and Gramm Kelly.

Following the Haltom matchup, the boys wrestled well but fell to Paschal, 48-21. The Kangaroos had to spot the Panthers 30 points due to open weights. Wins came from Moore, Prince, Sones and Kelly.


Weatherford swept through the Haltom lineup pinning as the girls pinned their first six girls. Then, the JV girls team swept with four more victories. Wins came from Alex Herle, Alena Kessler, Destiny Fry, Bethany Jackson, Carrisa Kelley, Mallory Hallmark, Haily Plusnick, Hallie Cooper, Elizabeth Newby and Nilda Canada.

Next, the girls took on Paschal and won the match, 42-12. Wins came from Kessler, Fry, Jackson, Brooklyn Hein and Lauren James.

Weatherford's next home event will be the Outback Tournament, where Weatherford will be hosting 16 teams in a two-day tournament Dec. 12-13.
