Wrestling Wins Two Titles at Kraft Tourney

A little home cooking was the right recipe for the Triton College wrestling team Dec. 8 when they hosted the 23rd Annual Art Kraft Memorial Tournament at the Collins Center. The Trojans earned their first two individual champions of the season as Denzel King, 125, a freshman from York, and Nikko Liotta, 133, a freshman from Mather won their respective weight classes. Both went 4-0 for the day. Travis Fuller (Sandwich) placed 6th at 149.

About : The freshman from Taft out-dueled South Suburban's ace Joe Greenfield to help give Triton a key 4-1 road victory over their Region IV Division I rival April 4. Rivera allowed one earned run on seven hits. But what sparked Rivera's strong outing was throwing an efficient 109 pitches. "The bottom line was that he threw a lot of strikes today and kept his pitch count down," head coach Harry Torgerson said about Rivera. "Even when South Suburban started to rally, he was able to get them to hit several ground balls and lazy pop flies and credit our defense for making plays behind him."

About : Coach Torgerson on the Trojans big three-run sixth inning that lifted Triton to a 4-1 win April 4 at South Suburban College. "That inning was a perfect example of Trojan baseball," Torgerson said. "We have good team speed and always tell the team about putting the ball in play and making contact. That's how we've been winning all year."
