On Friday they participated in a double dual, losing to Rossville 40-18 and Junction City 59-18.As far as the injuries are concerned, it isnâ€™t good.First thereâ€™s the latest in the Andrew Pelkey injury news.After looking to have clearance from the doctor this week, he was advised that his knee is still not ready for competition for another month.McComb said he can practice but he canâ€™t compete against other teams.

Gabe Smith, a freshman, is out for the year and Ian Groom, also a freshman, is questionable with an injury at 182 pounds. Zach Bodkin at 152 pounds did not go to Rossville because of an injury.â€œThe future is good because we have so many young wrestlers,â€ McComb said. â€œBut right now, it stinks, because they are so young and injured. Iâ€™m not sure how many open weight classes we will have when we travel to Mulvane.â€As far as the Rossville weekend, there were some positive notes.â€¢Matt McComb, a heavyweight freshman, went 2-4 in his varsity debut and was 2-2 in the tournament finishing seventh.â€¢Skylar Brand at 220 was 5-1 and lost his only match in the championship finals.
