Other top Trenton performances in the "A" Pool were Thomas Mack and Trey Shields both second with 4-1 records. Mack wrestled in the 160 pound weight class and Shields at 182 pounds. Dalton Ellis was 3-2 in the "A" pool at 145 pounds. Top Trenton records in the "B" Pool were Daniel Rodriguez, 3-2 at 106 pounds; and Colton Allen, 3-2 at 152 pounds.

Here are the provided comments from Head Coach Charlie Bacon:

The Marceline tournament lived up to its reputation of being one of the toughest class one tournaments in the state of Missouri. Trenton's junior class led the way and were the top performers for us. Mason Mounce looked very dominant over all 4 of his opponents throughout the whole day at 170. Mason seemed to be in a league of his own today, winning all of his matches by pin. Thomas Mack also looked very dominant at 160. Thomas had some tough matches throughout the day but always seemed to pull through when it counted, losing only his last match of the day in a tough 160 bracket. Sophomore Trey Shields also had a very good day, placing 2nd in a tough 182 bracket, losing only to top ranked J.J. Obongo from Brookfield in his last match. I was really happy with the way Trey stepped up today in a tough 182 bracket.

Dalton Ellis also had a good day, placing 3rd in the A pool, losing a couple of close matches to quality opponents. Dalton's positive attitude and desire to win should allow him to improve even more througout the season. I was also proud of some of our younger and more inexperienced wrestlers throughout the day. Freshman Brendon Johnson and Cole Little won their first varsity match, which is always a great feeling. I see a lot of great potential for these two young men and feel like they will improve tremendously throughout the season. Freshman Daniel Rodriguez and Conner Lovell also got some valuable experience at the varsity level. Daniel won 3 very close matches throughout the day, which is a huge accomplishment for a freshman at this tournament. Conner struggled to find a win, but gained some great experience against some good opponents. Colton Allen is another kid who won some of his first varsity matches, finishing with a 3-2 record on the day. I really think Colton is improving every time he steps on the mat.

All of our kids got some great experience, win or lose, during the day, which will only help them get better throughout the season. We did some very good things and some of us made some crucial mistakes, but it is early in the season and we now know what we need to work on more.

Trenton will HOST South Harrison and Gallatin on TUESDAY night at 6 o'clock.
