Pierre Fights To The Top Of Wrestling

Pierre Fights To The Top Of Wrestling

The Pierre Governors wrestling team currently sits at number one in the state. They are coming off three straight victories in the East-West duals which they hosted. In the final bout the Govs took out second ranked Rapid City Central 33-30.

"This is how it's supposed to be. It's supposed to come down to the last match. To have it come down the way that it did at the heavyweight and to go into overtime and winning it in dramatic fashion was exciting," Head Coach Ryan Noyes said.

For senior Trey Maier, a winner in the 195 pound weight class, it was all about going out and getting the job done for his team.

"My coach said, 'Hey a pin here we need it.' I just went out there and worked as hard as I could and found an opportunity then took him to his back. It was a lot of fun... crowd went crazy," exclaimed Maier after his win.

And it's the sea of green in the stands that Coach Noyes thinks fuels his team's success in matches like these.

"Amazing, that's the one thing that really gets our kids fired up is to have that kind of support from the community. Great group of kids and it's fun to be in an atmosphere like this with number one and number two teams in the state," Noyes said.

So how does a win like this midseason prepare the defending state champs going forward?

"To come out and win against a team that good is a lot of confidence for all of us I think," replied Maier.

"You always wonder how you match up against a team as tough as Rapid City Central is. I think we still have things that we need to work on, things we need to work on to get better, and we'll start doing that next week," Noyes said.

The Govs will travel to Brandon Friday before heading to the Brookings Invitational Saturday.
