Juneau wrestlers go 1-2 at Bartlett team tourney

Posted: Tuesday, December 09, 2003

The Juneau-Douglas High School Crimson Bears posted a 1-2 record during the Jerry Palmer Invitational team tournament Friday and Saturday at Anchorage's Bartlett High School.

The tournament is designed to test overall team strength and is set up as a series of dual meets. Teams move through a bracket similar to the ones used for the individual weight classes during the state tournament, but they have to win their dual meets to advance.

The Crimson Bears opened the tournament with a 43-27 loss to the Service Cougars in Friday's opening round. In the consolation bracket on Saturday, Juneau beat the Dimond Lynx 42-21, then were eliminated from the tournament by the Chugiak Mustangs 42-28.

The Wasilla Warriors won the tournament, beating the Skyview Panthers 49-24 in Saturday night's championship dual meet. The Kodiak Bears beat Service 46-27 in Saturday's third-place dual meet.

In Juneau's loss to Chugiak, the Crimson Bears picked up victories by pin from Gerry Carrillo at 103 pounds and John Kuterbach, a major decision from Sungie Musarra at 112 and decisions from Jordan Saceda at 119 and Tyler Casperson-Zimmerman at 171. Jake Ritter also won at 215, by forfeit.

In the victory over Dimond, Ritter, who moved up to 275 pounds, and Clinton Clark, at 130, both won decisions. Juneau also won six weight classes by forfeit.

In the loss to Service, Samson Keeney (189), Musarra and Dennis Hall (125) both won by pins for Juneau, while Ritter, Carrillo and Saceda won by decisions.

The Crimson Bears will host the Ketchikan Kings and Sitka Wolves in a series of triple-dual meets this weekend, with meets starting at 3:30 p.m. Friday and 1 p.m. Saturday at the JDHS main gym.
