Carthage JV Wrestling Team performs well at Blue Springs Tournament


The Carthage JV Wrestling team traveled to Blue Springs for the season’s first junior varsity tournament last Saturday.  As the team’s first outing with some of the bigger wrestling powerhouses such as Staley, Liberty and Kearney, Coach Kenny Brown was pleased with the overall performance. “I felt that our kids wrestled well.  It was nice to see some of our brand new to the sport wrestlers utilizing the techniques that they have learned over the past month.  It is always a treat to be able to witness their reactions to the first time their hand gets raised after a match.”  Of the 29 wrestlers that Carthage took to the tournament, seven came away with first place finishes. 

As in previous years, expectations are always high when you’re talking about the future of the team.  “We just want to see them continue to improve, in both technique and physical conditioning,” said Coach Brown.  “So far with the JV, we have concentrated on technique, so we really need to push our conditioning with the JV wrestlers this second month of the season.”  Brown also commented on some of the standout performances of the tournament: “Christian Brown(113) and Cristian Orellana(182).  Both are second year wrestlers and were able to come out with 1st place finishes.  Both placed 3rd at this tournament last season, and the fact that they were able to win it this year is a testament to how much they have grown in the sport in the span of a year.”

As evidenced by the ever-increasing signups each year, Carthage continues to maintain strength in numbers.  Brown had this to say about the phenomenal growth his sport has seen: “A big part is the exposure these boys are getting to wrestling before they get to high school.  Our youth program continues to grow and our junior high coaches (Zach Canfield and Nathan Enyart) do an amazing job of recruiting kids.  We have an administration that supports us with the coaches we need and in promoting our sport.  Last year, we were able to host an assembly dual, further exposing more kids to what being a Carthage Wrestler means.”


The JV team will wrestle next as part of the varsity dual with Joplin on Tuesday, December 17th. A JV dual with Lebanon will be hosted by Carthage next Thursday, December 19th, and then the JV team rounds out the week with a tournament in McDonald County on Saturday, December 21st.
