TRACY — Worthington was flat.
Facing Tracy-Milroy-Balaton in a wrestling dual Tuesday night, the Trojans came out flat in a 45-25 loss to the Panthers.
“We had nice performances from a couple of seniors, Julio Casillas and Jake Steffl, in our upper weights,” Worthington head coach Mark Prunty said. “Overall, it wasn’t one of our better efforts. Tracy is one of the better teams in the north section.”
Jared Kinley’s 9-5 decision against Joe Ruppert gave Worthington a 3-0 lead after 103 pounds, but Austin Peterson answered with a fall at 112 for the Panthers, giving T-M-B a 6-3 lead.
Worthington’s Kyle Wiese got the lead right back with a fall in 3:45, but that would be the final lead of the night for the Trojans.
Zach Campbell (fall in 2:50 at 125) started a run of five consecutive victories for the Panthers, as Erik Cooreman (major decision), Jared Towne (fall in 3:32), Ian Mariner (fall in 2:31) and Aaron Hohler (fall in 2:19) each picked up victories to give T-M-B a 34-9 advantage.
Tony Thier gave the Trojans a victory at 152, but Marcus Stefanick earned the points right back with a technical fall in 5:46.
Julio Casillas and Jake Steffl each picked up victories for Worthington in the upper weights, and Jordan Schroeder won by forfeit at heavyweight for the Trojans, but Colton Evans’ fall sealed the 45-25 victory.
