Two Sycamore high school wrestlers competed on a team of other Tennessee high schoolers in a duals tournament in Alabama. Rising senior Dalen Kimble wrestled at 145 pounds and went 9-0 over the weekend defeating the majority of his opponents by major decisions, meaning by 9 points or more. Rising Junior Logan Heckert won six matches on the weekend while losing some close matches to some power house kids wrestling up at 160 pounds.

“For the record, Dalen doesn’t often win matches by large numbers,” Sycamore coach Steve Hamblin said. “He usually is very patient and scores when he needs to. He really turned it on this weekend. Logan is wrestling 4 weight classes higher than he did last year while competing at state. That’s a big jump and quite an adjustment to make.”

“I am very proud of these two and the coaching staff at Sycamore looks forward to the upcoming season,” Hamblin said. “We have a solid group of kids working out and getting ready for the season. They are hungry and ‘want more’ than what they accomplished last season.”
