Competing in McCall last weekend, the Melba Mustang Dream Team finished second behind New Plymouth by only 12 points.

“It’s a numbers game and we just didn’t have enough weight classes covered,” said Melba Coach Ron Johnshoy.

Nine Melba wrestlers took their place on the podium and six claimed their own individual titles.

Levi Perry, 132 lbs., Blake Perry, 138 lbs., Jared Johnshoy, 145 lbs., Troy Richardson, 180 lbs., Fabian Medrano, 195 lbs., and Riley Crossley, 285 lbs. came home as district champions.

Cody Svedin, 113 lbs., Jesse Blount, 138 lbs., and DJ Todd, 152 lbs., finished with second place wins.

“The big thing is that we feel that we could have taken eleven guys to state and we took nine guys,” said Coach Johnshoy.  “At 113 pounds we got caught at the finals and we were really expecting to win that one. The 152 pound class was a bright spot, DJ Todd has picked it up quite a bit the past couple weeks and done really well. We were hoping to get our second 145, Alex Webb, in but Alex just didn’t have a good day. Everything else pretty much went as planned.”

Next stop for the nine qualified Mustang wrestlers is Holt Arena in Pocatello on February 22 and 23 for the IHSAA State Wrestling Tournament.
