Quote: “I was diasappointed tonight. We had a chance to pull into a tie for first in our conference, but did not wrestle very well. We had a few matches that we were ahead or tied in and then lost. A couple other matches we won by points where we should have gotten pins. We are young, so we need to use this as a learning opportunity, and try to get better from it.” — Vikings coach Corey Renner. Records: 16-8 (4-2). Next match: at Reed City Invitational Saturday.
Sparta 38, Belding 33: The Redskins were leading going into the last match, which was the 285-pound class. But Belding had to forfeit that match and lost the meet to the Spartans Wednesday night.

We’ve had a few adjustments to our lineup lately and are starting to work into those new positions. Some of our guys wrestled really well for us, but in the long run we put a lot of pressure on the bottom of our lineup. Those guys wrestled hard and with a sense of urgency, but Sparta had some tough guys to match up with. They’ve got one heck of a program.” — Belding coach Travis Meyer. Records: 14-7 (3-2). Next match: at Wyoming High next Wednesday.
