DELPHOS — With the new dual state wrestling format tournament coming in a couple of weeks, Jefferson head coach Mike Wilson was looking to get some matches for his crew Tuesday night versus Lincolnview and Allen East.

He didn’t get all his wrestlers matches due to voided weight classes by both the Lancers and Mustangs but he liked the ones he saw as his Wildcats beat the Lancers 51-18 and the Mustangs 42-25 at Jefferson High School.

“We had some good matches and some big wins. Gaige (Rassman) lost his match to Tyler Baker of Allen East but it was a good one for him; those are the matches and matchups we need as we get ready for the dual tournament later this month,” Wilson noted. “Those are the type of wrestlers we will be facing in those duals and any chance to get mat experience is welcome. Colin (McConnahea) had another good match against a good, solid, big, physical wrestler from Lincolnview (Dalton West) and he got frustrated but he came through with a pin. “This started last week at Lima Senior and will continue the next couple of weeks. We are looking to build into the team tournament, the NWC and then sectionals. We are looking for bigger and better things as we look ahead and that is what a night like this is preparing us for. That is why we are in the Van Buren Invitational this weekend for the first time ever.” The Lancers got a 33-18 win over the Mustangs.

“Allen East is very much like us: we have good quality but not a lot of quantity. Neither of us are in the state duals because we don’t have enough wrestlers,” Lancer coach Curtis Miller explained. “I have nine wrestlers but because of injuries and such, I have yet to have seven wrestlers in any given meet. We are preparing then for the league and the sectionals.

“It started last week and will continue the next two weeks at Van Buren and LCC. We are seeking to toughen our guys up physically for what is to come.”

Jefferson and Lincolnview are in the Van Buren Invitational starting 5 p.m. Friday and continuing Saturday starting at 9:30 a.m.
