VALLEY CENTER — The Newton Wrestling Club competed Saturday in the annual Valley Center Round Robin Tournament. Newton wrestlers claimed 11 first-place finishes, led by brothers Bryan and Gavin Cusick, and Nick, Grant and Logan Treaster. Also claiming a first-place finish was Boone Roberson, who had five pins in a total of seven minutes and 18 seconds. The tournament drew more than 700 wrestlers. “I thought we had some improvement all the way around,” coach Matt Treaster said. “I was particularly impressed with the improvement of Boone Roberson and Josh Edson. Although Josh took fourth place, he established himself as a top tier kid this weekend, by competing in a very tough bracket.” Edson is a second-year wrestler, who also played quarterback for the Newton Warrior football program and first baseman with the Bandit baseball team. The club also sent 14 wrestlers to the Valley Center Novice Tournament Sunday. The club will compete Jan. 19 at the Hutchinson Tournament.
