Risco visits Southland for a conference matchup on Friday.
STE. GENEVIEVE -- Three Sikeston freshmen tallied points in the Bulldogs' dual wrestling meet with always-tough Ste. Genevieve on Tuesday.
Sikeston (3-7), giving up 30 points by forfeit, lost 59-19 to Ste. Genevieve.
"We're still giving up so many points because we have open spots," said Sikeston coach Ivan Robison, "but the tough schedule is starting to pay off for us. We're not giving up as many pins. The kids are hanging on and that's a sign of improvement for these young kids."
Freshmen Dee Bizzell, Craig Burton and Cody Anderson came away with wins, as did senior heavyweight Joe Johnson.
In the 103-pound class, Bizzell pinned Aaron Wehner at the 2:34 mark of the second period. Burton, a 119-pounder, won a 14-7 decision over Dan Wheatley for three points and Anderson won the 125-pound division with a pin of Adam Sutton at the 1:01 mark of the first period.
