• Dalton opened its season by winning two of three duals in a four-team event at Tennessee’s East Hamilton High.
The Catamounts won 60-12 against both Sale Creek (Tenn.) and Chattanooga’s Silverdale Baptist but lost 53-25 to East Hamilton.
Noah Burns (152) won all three of his 152-pound matches via pin, while Dylan Carlile (126) and 2011-12 Class 4A 182-pound state champion Sidney Wheeler (220) also went 3-0 and Jose Garcia (138) finished 2-0 with a pair of pins.
Guztavo Diaz (170) pinned against Sale Creek and Eddie Santillion (138) pinned against Silverdale.
“We’ve got a lot to work on but I’m proud of the guys,” said Michael Keefe, who is in his first year as head coach at Dalton. “They fought pretty hard. I think we saw that the biggest reason why we lost was inexperience.”
