Six senior members of our Men’s Wrestling team were honored pror to their home match vs. Jones last night in the House of Payne and the Panthers took care of business afterward in a 72-9 victory over the Tigers. In the opening bout at 113 pounds, seniuor Tyrese Hicks toyed with his opponent in the opening period, jumping out to an 11-4 lead, before ending the match with a pin at 1:22. In the 120-pound class, sophomore Ethan Vanz gave DP a 12-0 team lead with a pin at 2:29 of the second period and later in the match, senior Christopher Liriano-Jimenez registered DP’s third pin of the night, ending the 182-pound bout at 2:31. Andre Young built a 12-5 lead after two periods in the 195-pound division but the junior capped the night with a solid pin at 5:49 of the third period to wrap up the victory. Jones did not bring a full contingent of wrestlers so they were forced to forfeit eight weight classes. Other honored seniors included Leonardo Barbieri, Giovany Preval, Jammell Sheppard and Salah Yunis. DP (8-5) will compete at the Wekiva Quad February 6th in preparation for the Metro Conference Championship February 15th.
