Dutchgirl wrestlers see season end in districts

Posted

Throughout this season of Owensville Dutchgirl wrestling, plenty of history has been made.

Over the weekend at Holt High School in Wentzville, another historic moment was almost witnessed.

Senior Jazz Marquez saw her first and last season of Dutchgirl wrestling end in two matches while junior Haven Sanders saw her junior season end two wins shy of the Missouri State High School Activities Association (MSHSAA) Girls Wrestling Championships to be held in Columbia from Feb. 20-22.

Pinning her way to the consolation semifinals, Dutchgirl senior Emma Reed found herself one win from an additional week of practice.

Facing Fort Zumwalt North’s Ashley Head with a trip to state on the line, Reed’s season ended with a loss by fall in 2:49.

Finishing her lone season of wrestling with a 4-3 record. Reed earned three of those victories during the MSHSAA Girls District 2 Wrestling Tournament.

Reed’s victories at the district tournament in the 152-pound weight class came against Macon’s Alyssa White, Centralia’s Gretchen Marriott and McCluer North’s Kieshauna Pleasant.

Entering districts with a Dutchgirl school record five wins, Marquez was matched up against McCluer North’s Kayla Davis.

Pinned in 2:32, Marquez’s next match in the 130-pound weight class was against St. Charles’ Hayley Netwon.

Coming out on the short end of a 7-5 decision, Marquez’s lone season of Dutchgirl wrestling ended with her finishing 5-6.

In her second year of Dutchgirl wrestling, Sanders competed in the district tournament at 142 pounds.

Matched up in the first round against Washington’s Shelby Whitacre, Sanders pinned the Lady Blue Jay in :34 advancing to the quarterfinals.

Taking on Holt (Wentzville) sophomore Esther Han.

Sanders was pinned in :31 against Han who came into that match with a 21-1 record.

Now in the second round of wrestlebacks, Sanders was matched up with Troy freshman Elly Cathcart looking to keep her season alive.

Losing a 14-2 major decision, Sanders ended her junior season of Dutchgirl wrestling with an overall record of 4-10.

“All three of our Dutchgirl wrestlers came a long way this season and I look forward to a bright future,” OHS head wrestling coach Rod Barndollar said.
