Thursday was not a good night for the Walker Valley Mustangs on the wrestling match. Friday turned out to be some better for the Mustangs with two wins in a dual meet at Cleveland High School.

The Mustangs bounced back from Thursday’s loss to Bradley Central with a 54-6 win over Cordova and ended the night with a 38-27 victory over Cookeville.

“The team and I’m sure the coaching staff was let down by our performance Thursday. It’s good to get back on the mat and let’s work out some of the issues we need to work on,” Morris said between matches.

“Cordova only brought so many guys, but they are tough. They have some good athletes. Our guys did what we expected them to do here. We will just have to see what happens.”

Walker Hood picked up the first of two pins for Walker Valley at 285 pounds. Chase Gregory earned a pin at 170.

The Wolfpack notched pins at 145, 182 and 195 pounds but gave up 42 points in forfeits.

The Mustangs spent the rest of the weekend wrestling marathon in tournament action at Soddy-Daisy where both teams they faced Friday participated.

“All the teams here tonight with the exception of Cleveland will be at the tournament this weekend. Cookeville and Cordova will be at the Soddy-Daisy tournament. We will see how all that works out. We will get a little bit of an idea about what to expect down the road,” said Morris.

“It’s just good for us to be back on the mat. We still have to go one day at a time and one match at a time. We’re just going to keep working.”

No individual result information on the Cookeville match was available at presstime.
