El Dorado’s wrestling teams seem to be hitting their stride with postseason meets looming on the horizon.
On Tuesday night at Sheridan with Hot Springs and Little Rock Hall also competing, El Dorado wrestlers came away with 12 wins with Ahmayus Young winning three matches at the 285-pound weight class and Dunte Maker winning twice at 195.
In addition to Young, Ethan Faith won twice and Deonte Williams also won his match at 285. Brian Soto was victorious at 170 with Aidan Johnson getting a win at 145 to round out the boys winners.
Katelyn Hayden won her match at 124 and Maddie Aguiluz came away with a win at 108 on the girls side.
“We wrestled well in all matches. It was fun to watch,” said El Dorado coach Jimmy Johnson.
As has been the case for nearly the entire season, EHS will have a quick turnaround when they head to North Little Rock for a two-day event starting Friday morning.
“We are looking forward to an actual tournament with a chance to wrestle multiple matches in one day against great competition,” Johnson said.
As far as keys to success are concerned for the weekend event, Johnson said he simply wants his wrestlers to continue to build on their momentum from Tuesday.
“It was great to watch ElDo wrestlers working hard against some good competition,” Johnson said. “The improvement was tremendous. We just need to keep this momentum going.”
