Rock Creek takes sixth

By The Mercury

The Rock Creek wrestling team traveled to Burlington on Saturday with a new look to its team.

After wrestling the first semester without three seniors — Marc Reiss Justin Ward, and Jesse Correll — all were back on the mat this last weekend.

Rock Creek jumped out to a strong start by putting five wrestlers in the semifinal round, pulling four through to the finals, and sitting in second place as a team.

Leading the way for the Mustangs were AJ Burenheide, Reiss, Chase Ridder and Correll.

Burenheide was the sixth seed in his bracket and beat both the No. 2 and 3-seeded wrestlers on his way to a second-place finish. Rock Creek finished with eight placers and a sixth-place team finish.
