The Rocklin High wrestling team played host to Granite Bay and again gave up too many forfeits and fell to the Grizzlies 46-31 last week. It was Rocklin’s second Sierra Foothill League loss.

The Thunder won five of the eight bouts contested but lost 5-1 on forfeits. Rocklin head coach Torrean Tyus said injury and illness again depleted his squad much like the Thunder suffered two weeks earlier at Del Oro.

Tyus pointed out that Rocklin’s victory over Roseville last week was a reflection of what the silver-and-blue could accomplish when healthy. Unfortunately, his athletes haven’t been able to maintain that.

Rocklin registered pins at 113 pounds (Michael Cole), 152 (Andrew Tyson) and 160 (Kaige Miller). Winning on points were Eli Cunningham (138, 11-9) and Skyler Gonzalez (182, 13-2).

The Thunder was scheduled to host Woodcreek Thursday and travel to Nevada Union for their final dual match Jan. 30.

Postseason divisional meets are scheduled for Feb. 15-16 with the Masters coming up Feb. 22-23 at the Stockton Arena.
