JEFFERSON CITY — The Rock Bridge and Hickman wrestling teams had a tough showing at the Missouri Duals at Helias Catholic High School this weekend. The Kewpies and Bruins finished the tournament with a combined record of 1-11 in their duals.

Fourteen schools came to Jefferson City and participated in the two-day competition. The duals were constructed in a two-division, round-robin format with seven teams assigned to each division.

Hickman competed in a division against Jefferson City, Omaha Burke (Omaha, Neb.), Ozark, Neosho (JV), Eureka and Lebanon.

Rock Bridge wrestled in the opposite division against Helias Catholic, Christian Brothers College High School, Waynesvile, Neosho (Varsity), Oakville and Kirkwood.

As a team, Hickman did not win any of its duals. Hickman's three-point loss to Ozark and four point-loss to Neosho (JV) were their closest duals.

Hickman did, however, have some individual wrestlers perform well in their weight classes. Josiah Kline (106), Ibraim Mushtalov (160) and J’den Cox (220 and 285) had perfect 6-0 records in their matches. Alex Shea (145) finished the competition with a record of 5-1 in his duals.

Rock Bridge only won dual this weekend. Coach Travis Craig said they defeated Oakville 42-36.

“We knew it was going to be a struggle as a dual team,” Craig said. “We only brought 10 guys so we started off down 24 points in each dual based on the open slots in our lineup.”

Rock Bridge wrestles at Park Hill on Tuesday, and both the Bruins and Kewpies will participate in the Lee’s Summit Christmas Invite next weekend.
