Rocks News · Wrestling beats Canton 62-9 in Rivalry Dual

The Salem Wrestling team out gunned Canton in their annual rivalry dual 62-9 on Wed Jan 10th.  This is the 2nd year they have had the rivalry dual, last year Canton beat Salem 45-25 in the opener but it was all the Rocks this year.


“I thought we wrestled well for the most part, our guys have been training hard the last couple weeks and were excited for this dual especially since it is our cross campus rivals, they’ll see these kids at school tomorrow.  We still had the bad taste in our mouth about the spotlight dual at our place from last year so it was good to get some redemption.   There were a couple close matches but I would say JaQuan Baker was the highlight of the night beating returning regional qualifier Dylan Slowik at the 152 pound weight class.  Dylan is a tough kid and we knew it was going to be a good match, but JaQuan was ready and he has been wrestling lights out the last couple weeks.  Justin Pronyk (171 lbs.) and Nick Dosh (103 lbs.) were new in the lineup tonight and got a couple wins which is awesome, those 2 are both freshmen!   We need a couple good practices, Saturday is a big day as we push for a good showing in our KLAA black division Saturday at Wayne Memorial! -Salem Head Coach Jeremy Henderson
