The Whitney High wrestling team got little more than a good workout against visiting Mira Loma and rolled to a 60-18 victory last week. Twelve of the Marauders points came on forfeit.

The only defeats the Wildcats suffered were by points in the 145 and 160-pound weight classes. All of Whitney’s wins were by fall.

“They have a very young team. They have a few very, very good wrestlers who weren’t here tonight,” said Whitney head wrestling coach Dan Parker as to his club’s easy win. “I still think we would have beat them; they (were) missing a few guys that are excellent wrestlers.”

Forfeits were even as Whitney had to surrender bouts at 220 pounds and heavyweight divisions; the ‘Cats picked up forfeit points at 113 and 120 pounds.

Parker was still satisfied with his club’s showing and said his squad was young as well. With only one senior, Maddy Fitzgerald, the coach said he was quite happy with the talent on his squad and pleased with their development.

He said the real test will come in the next two weeks when the Wildcats host El Camino next Wednesday and Antelope Jan. 29.

“Those two are the teams to beat in the league,” Parker said. “So it’s going to be much more competitive next week and the following week.”

Parker said he expects a lot from his wrestlers and there’s always room to get better.
