The Greyhounds swept Rutland and Central in their first home match of the season, downing the Hurricanes 42-23 and beating the Chargers 60-14 last Tuesday.

Alcovy also swept Central and Rutland, but due to time constraints, Jones County and Alcovy were not able to compete in varsity action against each other.

Tim Randolph, at 113 pounds, Danny Williams, at 126, Jequelle Griffin, at 132, Davin Price, at 145, Justin Clausell, at 170, and Jackson Williamson, at 285, were all 2-0 for the Greyhounds, with Williams, Griffin, Price and Clausell all getting two pins.

Freshmen Daniel Curry, at 182, and River Vaughn, at 195, split their matches, but both had pins in their victories, Vaughn against Rutland and Curry against Central.

Another freshman, Torrez Finney at 152 pounds, had the toughest luck in the match, losing two close decisions, including a double overtime loss against the Rutland wrestler.

“The guys did OK. We’re still learning,” coach Daniel Lewis said. “We would have loved to wrestle Alcovy – they have a really good program – but with it being a school night they had a curfew and had to leave before we could get to the third match.
