Unalaska Wrestler Competes in State Semifinals
Friday, December 07 2012
An Unalaska wrestler will be competing in the state semi-finals Friday night. Connor McConnell will be going up against a Mt. Edgecumbe wrestler in the 220 pound weight class. Coach Steve Gregory says it’s going to be a tough match.
“You know, he’s got a 50-50 chance. He’s going to wrestle a guy with two arms and two legs - that’s what I tell him. And he’s been wrestling pretty good [sic] so far, so we just want to keep it going.”
Two other wrestlers - Alec Magalong and Dylan Magunsen - didn’t make it to the semi-finals, but they’ll be vying for third place tomorrow. Sophomore Phillip Kuckuck was also competing this week, but he lost both his matches and is out of the tournament.
The competition continues through tomorrow night.
