‘Cats snare first city title

MOORE — Southmoore won its first ever city wrestling championship Tuesday at Moore High. The SaberCats earned a pair of hard fought victories over Westmoore and Moore to earn the coveted Moore Festival trophy.

“We were a little flat in the first dual, but we did rebound in the second dual a little,” Southmoore coach Gregory George said. “I am very glad we won.”

Westmoore won the first match of the afternoon when it held off Moore. All the Jaguars needed was a win over the SaberCats to secure the title.

However, Southmoore won two of the final three weights to beat Westmoore 37-28.

The Cat ended the night against Moore, who kept the contest close. But Westmoore cruised in the final five weights to close out the championship.

“It was a goal we had and I am glad we got it done,” George said. “Our main goal is state.”

The SaberCats then traveled to the Jenks Invitational over the weekend and placed third. Nathan Merick and Zac Moore won their weight division while Ty Jackson was a runner-up.

“We had seven placers,” George said. “We had a great showing by half the team. We need to improve the other seven to meet our goals in the future.”
