OBSERVER Staff Report

RANDOLPH — The Fredonia Hillbillies wrestling team continued their impressive season on Wednesday, downing Randolph 53-21 in non-league action.

Fredonia was led by Jamison Horch, who returned from injury after missing two years to pin his man at 285 in the second period.

“[Jamison] is a talented kid,” said Fredonia coach Joe Santilli. “He’s battled all the way back from injury and he seized the opportunity when he got back out there.”

Jake Skinner wrestled another good match, beating Randolph’s Jacob Zachar by a 7-3 decision.

“[Jake] is wrestling well,” said Santilli. “He had a solid match. He stayed in good position and attacked when he needed to.”

Hunter Larson won a 3-0 decision, Dalton Gardner won by technical fall and Cole Golembieski, Brandon Wallace, Alex Christy and Ceric Kristan all picked up pins for the Hillbillies.

Fredonia (8-2) will return to action this weekend at the Southern Tier Tournament held in Salamanca.
