HUNTSVILLE WRESTLING: Hornet wrestlers sitting pretty at regionals

Huntsville —

So far, so good.
After the first day of the Class 4A Region III wrestling tournament Friday at the Berry Center in Cypress, both the Huntsville boys and girls are sitting pretty heading into the final portion of the tourney.
The Lady Hornets have already accumulated 116 points and hold a 54-point lead over second-place Humble. The Hornets, meanwhile, are in second place, trailing defending state champions Highland Park by 9.5 points.
Latericca Riles (128 lbs), Marissa Dixon (138 lbs), Latresha Johnson (215 lbs), David Magness (120 lbs) and Toby Dierksheide (138 lbs) will all be wrestling for regional championships today in their respective weight classes.
Jordan Kader, Maya Lewis, Kori Beckham, Skylar Brock, Zenia Hernandez, Christian Walker, A.J. Robertson, Elijiah Dierksheide, Nic Dornbush, Jordan Johnson, Morgan Carr, Randy Shipman and Bailey Larson are still alive and are looking to grapple their way to the third-place match.
“I was excited to see how our kids wrestled,” Huntsville wrestling coach Dean Schaub said. “We had several wrestlers that were here for the first time and I was most pleased with the way they handled it. The biggest shock of the day was the fact that we are very close from knocking off last year’s state champions Highland Park.”
The finals and consolation matches will conclude today, beginning approximately at noon.
