Swedes wrestle well at Cozad Invitational
The Swedes took seven varsity wrestlers to the Cozad Invite Saturday and scored 71 points earning eighth place out of 13 teams on Saturday.
Skyler Kottwitz, who went 3-1 with two pins earning second place, led the Swedes. Bryce Larson lost his first match and pinned his way through the back side of his bracket to finish third and Jayden Miller had two pins on the day and earned a fourth place finish.
Tyson Miller also earned two wins by pin.
Coach Tom Scott said the Swedes wrestled well at times but are still continuing to work on conditioning. He noted Gothenburg was on the attack in most of its matches.
With the experience of two matches, Gothenburg heads to Columbus for the biggest meet of its season, the Nebraska Dual Invite.
Scott said Gothenburg will take 14 wrestlers to the invite, an entire team, adding that each wrestler gets 10 matches.
Scott said he has seen improvement already in the young season and the Swedes will continue to get better.
“We will do a little extra conditioning in the mornings,” Scott said. “We must improve every week.”
