Double dual sweep makes Cyclones 3-1 in Hawkeye Ten
HARLAN (Dec. 14) -- Six Harlan Community wrestlers picked up two wins each Thursday night as the Cyclones swept Clarinda and Shenandoah in a Hawkeye Ten Conference double dual.
HCHS beat the Cardinals 48-20 before taking care of the Mustangs 49-18 and improving its H-10 dual record to 3-1. Clarinda (1-3) edged Shenandoah (1-2) in the first dual of the meet, 30-29.
The Cyclones finished 12-7 in contested matches and picked up bonus points in 11 of the 12 victories. They outpinned Clarinda 6-0 and added four pins against Shenandoah compared to the Mustangs’ three.
HCHS head coach John Murtaugh likened his team’s good start in H-10 duals to “gettin’ while the gettin’s good.”
“We’ve got to take care of business against those teams that we’re favored against and teams that we’re even with,” he said. “We’ve got to scrounge for every point and finish as high as we can in the Hawkeye Ten. There seems to be a little more parity this year... so we don’t have to take a back seat to anybody."
Among the Cyclones’ six two-win wrestlers Thursday, freshman Dalton McKinley (126) and junior Oscar Olmos (145/152) both recorded two pins.
Additional Cyclones going 2-0 were Ethan Lemon (forfeit, pin), Lucas Carter (pin, forfeit), Nick Foss (pin, major decision) and Daniel Soll (pin, decision).
