A4 SIDNEY HERALD, SUNDAY.AUGUST 4. 20l9 SEOI‘tS Team Sidney tops Team Germany at Richland County Fair wrestling duals BY AMY EFTA Team Sidney defeated Team Germany 42-26 at the Richland County Fair and Rodeo Wrestling Duals Wednesday night. It was a sweet redemption for the Eagle team, who were de- feated by Germany at their last meet-up in Sidney two years ago. “We’ve been back from Florida for a month and half, so we’re not in wres- tling shape,” Sidney Eagle Head Coach Guy Melby said. “It was fun. Our guys came out and competed re- ally well.” The German exchange team has been in Montana all week, arriving first for a match-up with a Billings team, touring West Yellow- stone, traveling to eastern Montana and spending a day at Fort Peck with Team Sidney. For the Germans, it was a memorable experi- ence and one of their favor- PHOTO BY AM Team Sidney wrestler Zander Burnison takes his Team Germany opponent Lorenz Rompp down to the mat during one of four Greco- style matches Wednesday night at the Richland County Fair wres- tling duals. Twenty matches were held overall, with Team Sidney ite parts of the visit. “In Germany, we just have small lakes and no one owns their own boat,” Team Germany Coach Andre Wuchenauer said. For Melby, true to his nature, he just likes to get down to business. “I’m not much into the political stuff and the meet- ings. I just want to wres- tle. Wrestle, practice and watch our guys get better. YEFTA PHOTO BY AMY EFTA During the wrestling duals at the fair Wednesday night, Team Sidney's Brady Gorder takes his shot against Team Germany's Kai Krausieder. Sidney wrestled their way to a 42-26 victory. That’s my main goal,” he said. End-of—summer match- es like the one at the fair helps Melby’s team stay focused for the upcoming season. The duals against Germany included four Greco style matches out of 20, with the rest as free- style. Greco style forbids any holds below the waist. “Anytime we can go'and wrestle somebody we do,” Melby said. “Doesn’t mat- ter what style. That’s just another match in our belt. There’s a lot of other teams out there that aren’t doing that. They’re not going to Florida and Minneapolis and getting 20, 25 matches. You just get one here, but to wrestle another country *— how many people get to do that?” A team from Montana will travel to Germany next year for another com- petition. Melby said there will likely be a couple guys from Sidney on the team, but they are careful who they take because the rules and laws are so different across the pond. Typical- ly, they bring graduating seniors. To end their visit in Sid- ney, Team Germany will take in a day at the Rich- land County Fair and Rodeo before traveling to Lewistown for a competi— tion, after which they will make their way back home.
