Sikeston grapplers place ninth at Affton Tourney

Monday, December 5, 2005

ST. LOUIS -- Sophomore heavyweight Robert Madison was the lone medalist for the Sikeston wrestling team at the Affton Tournament on Saturday.

Sikeston, with 42 points, finished ninth in the 13-team tournament. The Bulldogs won 14 of 36 matches.

"Compared to last year, that's phenomenal," said Sikeston coach Ivan Robison. "We've already won more matches this year than we won all of last year."

Host Affton won the tournament with 121 points and Parkway Central finished second with 94.

Madison (2-2) won the third-place match with a pin fall at 4:21 over Thomas Hellam of Sumner.

Non-medalist placers were sophomore Ashton Cantrell, fourth place at 135 pounds, freshman Jordan Mays, fifth place at 103; sophomore Craig Burton, fifth place at 130; sophomore Gavilan Bland, fifth place at 145; and Phillip Harris, sixth place at 215.
