Tony Moore going strong with Pine River wrestlers
LEROY — Tony Moore’s been having quite a season at 103 pounds in his sophomore wrestling season at Pine River.
Moore won the Mid-Michigan Wrestling Conference title at that weight class on Feb. 2. Then on Feb. 9, he placed fourth in the Division 4 district to qualify for the wrestling regionals this weekend.
At the conference meet, Moore was 2-0 and won both matches by pin. He ended the regular season at 30-7.
“I’m pretty happy about it,” he said. “It’s been a pretty good effort.”
He improved significantly from last year.
“Last year, I wasn’t even on varsity,” he said. “I gained a little more weight and worked during the summer.”
Top work has been a strength, Moore said.
He wants to work on his turn and different moves.
Moore was hoping to do well in districts and took fourth. As a team the Bucks host the regionals on Wednesday and face Hesperia in the semifinals.
