Wrestling: Craig third in Big Eight meet
Dylan Siener and Aristide Serrano carried the torch for Janesville wrestlers Saturday at the Big Eight Conference Tournament.
Siener, a junior at Janesville Parker, won the 126-pound title. Serrano, a Janesville Craig sophomore, was champion at 160.
Sun Prairie claimed the overall Big Eight title by winning the conference tournament with 258 points. Middleton was second with 253.5, while Craig was third with 228.5.
“The best thing I can say about our day was that all 14 wrestlers placed for us,” Craig coach Mark Mullen said. “We had a couple of matches that got away from us, or we would’ve had more points and a chance to finish at least second.
“As a whole, our conference is very tough from top to bottom. There are a couple of kids from are conference that are going to be in the mix for a state championship.”
Siener capped off an unbeaten Big Eight season by beating Middleton’s Chris Rogers, 5-1 in the title bout.
“Dylan wrestled incredible today,” Parker coach Danny Jackson said. “He was very confident coming into the tournament and then went out and did what he set out to do. I expect him to be successful starting with the regional meet next weekend and having a chance to wrestle at state.”
Zach Mulrooney finished second for Craig at 145 pounds, while the Cougars’ Stone Klingamon, Nate Farrell, Kyle LeCaptain and Anthony Skrede were third. Parker’s Michael Roca was also third.
Craig hosts the Division 1 regional meet Saturday with Parker, Milton, Elkhorn, Lake Geneva Badger and Elkhorn among the other teams competing.
