LEROY -- The Bucks placed fifth in the Gladwin Super duals on Saturday. The team started the morning with wins over Big Rapids and Tawas before dropping tightly contested matches with Gladwin and Midland. In the final placing match of the day, the team brought a great deal of energy and scored a good win over Bay City John Glenn, coach Terry Martin said.

"The top of our lineup really showed up big for us today," Martin said. "Andrew Baldwin (215) and Caleb Gepford (285) were both undefeated and scored a lot of important bonus points for their team. Ryder Holmes (144) joined them at 5-0 on the day. Jericho Holmes (132) and Damian Jackson (138) held up the middle of the line up at 4-1 on the day. Jackson had a couple really big come from behind losses using his conditioning and determination to come back and score wins late in the match."

The Bucks are home for a conference quad on Wednesday and also home for the Fallen Bucks Memorial on Saturday.

"The team tournament honors PR wrestling alumni that tragically lost their lives at a very young age over the years," Martin said.
