RESTOF — The York Golden Knights’ wrestling team took a tough defeat at home losing 70-12 to the Warsaw Tigers, earlier tonight.
The Knights were able to pick up wins in the 126 pound weight class matchup and one of the 220 pound matchups, but were facing a dominant Tigers squad.
“We knew coming into this that we were going up against a powerhouse of a team,” head coach Chad Draper said. “We got a young team, and we have to build up our youth program and start being able to compete with a team like that. Right now, they have such a deep program, it’s tough to compete with them.”
While the Tigers came out on the winning end of a majority of the matches, Draper felt his wrestlers gave it their all.
“The kids had the right mindset coming in, they were going to go out and give it their best, and none of them were scared,” he said. “I asked the kids what do you want to do and they said ‘I want to wrestle,’ so I give them a lot of credit for being first-year wrestlers.”
The Golden Knights will look to rebound this Saturday, on the road against Batavia.
