The Warrior wrestling team lost a 43-23 match to Tonawanda yesterday. Winning for the Warriors were Taher Ahmed, Huy Dang, Caleb Graves, and Kiar Parker. The Warriors are now 1-1 in ECIC 3 and 1-6 overall. This team has wrestled very well considering that just about each wrestler bumps up 1 sometimes 2 weight classes to help the team. Thats right they don't lose weight they go against someone bigger. So proud of my 11 wrestlers that have worked hard to call themselves Cheektowaga Warriors. The Varsity team will head to the ECIC tournament this weekend while the other half of the team will head to the NT Lumberjack JV tournament.
The Warriors begun the 2017-18 season with a 65-51 win over Springville last night. Warriors jumped out early and held a commanding lead for most of the night. A few hiccups and still need to shake off some rust and come together as a team, but we'll take an opening night league win any day.
Rudy Bragg led the Warriors in scoring with 23, while Alex Bryant chipped in 16 and was active on both ends all night. The Warriors also got key contributions from Davon Brown, Tyreek Gibson, Jacob Warden and Jaquan Pugh. This team is very balanced if they're on the same page, as they continue to play team ball and build trust among each other could they give ECIC III fits all season.
Be sure to come out and support the Warriors Wednesday night as the host cross town rival Maryvale in a huge league matchup, JV tips at 5 and Varsity at 6:30, see you then and BE LOUD, GO WARRIORS!
