LEROY\u00a0\u2014 Jordan Stone is looking for his senior season to be his best for the Pine River wrestling team. He\u2019s at 112 pounds this season for the Bucks. He placed eighth at state at 112 pounds a year ago. His goal is to return and finish higher. Coming into January, Stone was at 8-3. \u201cI\u2019ve been wrestling pretty good,\u201d he said. \u201cWe\u2019ve been wrestling people at higher divisions this year. We\u2019re getting ready for our Division 4 (matches). Those three losses were against defending state champs. It helps me out.\u201d Stone has been working at hand control and blocking shots. \u201cI usually work off of their shots so that when they shoot, it\u2019s defensive-offensive wrestling they call it,\u201d Stone said. As the Bucks head into the January part of their schedule, Stone likes the way he\u2019s been wrestling so far. \u201cThe team is looking pretty good,\u201d he said. \u201cWe\u2019ve been going up against superior teams, higher division teams. We\u2019re matching up pretty well against them. I\u2019m proud of them. I would say there\u2019s room for improvement.\u201d But Stone is expecting plenty out of this team before the season ends. The Bucks are at Reed City for an invitational Saturday.
