MMA 12, Father Tolton 63

One pin from Russell Olson (215).

“This was our first look at a district opponent for the year, Father Tolton, and while the score was not in our favor, it was a good look at where we need to get before districts in February,” Coach Iman says. “Team captain Ryan Miles wrestled a hard six minutes with his opponent, losing by 3 points, but demonstrating to all that MMA wrestlers not to quit in the face of adversity. Trevino, new to MMA wrestling this year, came out with two pins on the night, capitalizing on quick thinking.”
