The long Christmas break left the Ranburne wrestlers rusty at Cleburne County High School’s Rumble in the Jungle tournament on January 4. The severe cold early the next week cost the Bulldogs their only scheduled matches last week so when Ranburne went to Saks Tuesday to take on the Wildcats and the Lincoln Golden Bears coach Jay Harlan wasn’t sure what to expect.

What Harlan got was 2-0 performances from seven different wrestlers. Noah McCord (126 pounds), Logan Otwell (138), Tyler East (145), Dalton Wiggins (160), Dylan Tullis (182), Austin Jordan (195) and Zach Eason (220) each won both their matches.

“I was really pleased with (Tuesday) night,” Harlan said Wednesday. “We’d been working on some different stuff at practice. It’s tough to practice every day and not wrestle but I saw a lot of improvement (Tuesday) night. I was very pleased with the way we wrestled.”

At the Rumble in the Jungle, Wiggins was third at 152 and Eason third at 220. Tullis finished fourth at 182.

Next week, Ranburne travels to Wellborn Monday for the Wellborn Duals. Oxford and Bowdon (Ga.) come to Ranburne Tuesday.
