The Le Roy/Tri-Valley Jr. High wrestling regular season came to an end this week as they defeated Eureka and Olympia, competed at a junior high JV Tournament in Mahomet and hosted their annual Panther Invitational.
LeROY — It was not the level of success the LeRoy/Tri-Valley Panthers are used to, but it was still a strong season for a program in transition.
LeROY – The LeRoy boys dominated their first-round matchup against Deland-Weldon Tuesday night as the game went pretty much as expected.
In the first quarter alone the Panthers scored 28, 21 of them coming from junior Matt Chastain. He played inches above the competition before even leaving the floor as he would end the game with 39 points.
The LeRoy boys went 3-0 on the week in picking up a pair of conference wins and a comeback victory Tuesday at home against LaSalette Academy.
FARMER CITY — The Blue Ridge Knights led Ridgeview 19-15 after the first quarter Friday night, but after that, the Mustangs did what the Mustangs do.
They ended the game with 16 3-pointers, draining many of them in the second quarter during a 17-0 run to move ahead 36-23 by the end of the half.
LeRoy High School running back Lane Lindstrom has signed on to play college football at St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa.
LeROY — The Panthers will host their regional this year, and they will need the home court advantage if they want to come out on top.
DOWNS – The Tri-Valley boys couldn’t get over a hump Friday in a 53-46 senior night loss to El Paso-Gridley.
The Vikings had a few runs in them but failed to sink the big shot as they pulled within one with four minutes in the game.
LeRoy — The LeRoy/Tri-Valley took third in this year’s regional, failing to win for the first time in seven years, but six individuals earned a spot in sectionals this weekend.
At 106, Harley Justus controlled the competition, winning his first match in a fall in 1:53 and winning the championship with an 8-5 decision.
LeROY — The goal for the Panthers Friday night against Flanagan-Cornell-Woodland was to contain Brian Alberston. They did it, but Keegan Bertsche almost made the strategy futile.
