Ki-Be vs. Grandview
The Grandview Greyhounds hold a 7-5-1 advantage against Ki-Be in lifetime duals. However, the Bears have not lost in the last five meetings with the Greyhounds and are 5-1-1 in the last seven meetings. Here are the results from the last 7 duals with Grandview.
As you can see the last loss to Grandview was 10 years ago. The Bears will have to wrestle at their best to keep the streak alive.
135 - Josh Corke (#6) is moving up to 135 from 130 and faces a tough test from Alfredo Maldonado (#5). Corke is currently 15-8 and ranked 6th in the CWAC. With 5 wrestlers going to state from the CWAC, Corke will need to show that he can beat wrestlers like Maldonado.
140 - Jesse DeLaPena (#4) vs. Kyle Hutchinson (#2). Hutchinson defeated Jesse 10-1 at the Grandview tournament last week, but the same thing happened last year. Hutchinson took the first match from Jesse in dominating style during the regular season last year, but Jesse came back strong to win at the sub-district meet. If Jesse can pull out the win here than Ki-Be should be on their way to another dual meet victory. A loss will make this dual very close.
160 - The Bears will need a win from Josh Corriel (#9) tonight. Josh will wrestle either Leo Pacheco or Ruben Avalos (#8-152). Josh has gone up against some tough competition lately at 160 and has lost to some more experienced wrestlers. He has the potential to beat many of the wrestlers he has lost to. The Bears will need a good performance from Corriel in this dual.
215 - Bobby Canales vs. Jason Greene. At the Grandview tourney, Greene defeated Bobby 3-2. Bobby usually learns from these type of losses and comes out victorious the second time around. Bobby is ranked #2 in the CWAC and Greene #1.
103 Sergio Avila (16-2) #4 vs. Romi Gonzalez (12-10)
112 Barry Leavitt (3-14) vs. Adam Logozzo (6-3) #7
119 Forfeit vs. Maurisio Saldana (0-7)
125 Ale DeLaPena (22-1) #1 vs. Forfeit
130 Matt Walsh (3-9) vs. Antonio Avalos (12-3) #7
145 Mark McCullough (6-15) vs. Andy Logozzo (13-5) #2
152 Kyle Nickerson (3-13) vs. Ruben Avalos (10-8) #8
171 Angel Mejia (16-7) #6 vs. Martin Alaniz (0-7)
189 Joey Isley (6-4) #3 vs. Josh Childress (3-7)
275 Zach Lefevre (11-11) #8 vs. Gerardo Fajardo (0-7)
Notes of interest:
Ale has moved into second on the Ki-Be all-time win list with 120 (Travis Knutson compiled 124). He has the best winning percentage of all-time 93.8% (120-8). Ale is 93-1 over the last 3 years. Ale is also just 10 team points away from the all-time record of 767 held by Travis Knutson.
Joey Isley has the second best career pinning percentage in team history. His 42.8% is second only to Nick Pells 49.3%. His 36 career pins is tied for 6th all-time.
Sergio Avila has won more career matches at 101/103 than any wrestler in Ki-Be history. Sergio is currently 40-14 lifetime.
Bobby Canales tied his brother with 45 career wins. Joe Canales was 45-35 from 1991-94.
If Jesse DeLaPena manages to win 20 matches this year, the DeLaPena brothers will become only the second brothers at Ki-Be to win at least 20 matches in the same season. The Knutsons did it three times including 30+ wins twice.
