Wrestling–Mountaineer Classic Wrestling Tournament

Published by at 11:11 am under Monticello,Western Albemarle,wrestling

From the MCHSAthletics website: The Wrestling team hosted 9 other schools this afternoon in the Mountaineer Classic and finished the day with a runner-up finish to Fluvanna. Madison won their pool beating Courtland (46-33), Monticello (41-33), Western Albemarle (54-30) and Dinwiddie (38-36) Madison faced off against Fluvanna, who also won their pool, and lost 44-26. Ethan O’Connell and Anthony Jewett both went 5-0 and Jeff Foster was 4-0 on the day to lead the Mountaineers. Jacob Welch, Lynn Welch and Derek Nicholson all were 4-1.

I shot Madison’s first three matches, all wins.  Here are links:

Madison vs Western Albemarle

The lighting for wrestling is especially tough, the wrestlers are usually looking down, and there is NO light reflected off those mats.  So, for something different, I shot the first match with strobes, mounted high on the bleachers in two corners.  The color is MUCH better, and those faces pressed into the mat are now lit up…but it’s a lot of work to set it up…..

5-1340-0060-Lane Warren

5-1340-0033-Derek Nicholson

Derek Nicholson went 4-1 for the day. I saw his first three matches and they didn't last long, quick pins, the longest match lasting 49 seconds.

…and the next to matches I shot natural light, no strobes….

5-1341-0046-Ethan O'Connell

Ethan O'Connell was 5-0 for the day.

5-1342-0097-Jeff Foster

Jeff Foster was 4-0 for the day.
