The Sutton Mustangs and Freeman Falcons certainly are not strangers on the basketball court. As the two teams have met up on the hardwood court 13 times over a span of 17 years, before Monday night’s C2-4 district final.

At stake was a trip to the Class C-2 state tournament, which runs March 9-13 in Lincoln.

The majority of meetings between the Mustangs and the Falcons took place in holiday tournament action from 2004 through 2015 when Sutton headed to Adams for the annual tournament. One other game, a 46-39 sub-district tournament win by Sutton over Freeman in 2013, gave the Mustangs a 7-6 series edge, as both teams won six games in 12 holiday tournament games.

Monday night, it looked as if it would be another highly contested battle between the two teams.

Hinrichs = Gold x 2

Hinrichs = Gold x 2

Sutton senior Joe Hinrichs capped his high school career with his second state championship Saturday night in Omaha, this year winning the 160-pound class with a 5-3 win in this match over Ord’s Garrett Kluthe. His record-setting career also earned him 171 total wins against just 19 losses, of which 12 of his losses were his freshman year. During his final two years on the mats, Hinrichs was a combined 85-2, and he amassed a 131-7 record since beginning his sophomore year in 2019. TORY DUNCAN | CLAY COUNTY NEWS

The stage was set for Sutton senior Joe Hinrichs to go out as a record-setting champion, following his C-2 District championship on Feb. 13 in Battle Creek.

Hinrichs had compiled a 167-19 career record over the course of the past four years.

He needed three wins to eclipse Tyler Bailey’s career total wins of 169, established at the end of the 2015 season, but just as big, with Hinrichs’ fourth straight trip to the Nebraska State Wrestling championships, he was set up to become Sutton’s first-ever two-time state champion after winning the Class C 152-pound weight class as a junior in 2020.

His trek to the 160-pound state title this year was no easy task this past weekend, but the mindset for Hinrichs was obvious, as his battle-tested focus was like no other when he opened with his first match Friday night at the CHI Health Center in Omaha.

Other four-time state qualifiers include Austin Carlson, Evan Carlson, Derek Bailey and Ignacio Rivera.

Coming off the tough 53-42 semifinal loss to Centennial in the 2021 Southern Nebraska Conference tournament, the Sutton Mustangs looked to bounce back from that setback in the battle for third place against the Heartland Huskies in the weather-delayed SNC tournament Monday night at Centennial High School.

After claiming a narrow 12-11 first-quarter lead, Sutton grabbed control of the consolation game in the middle two quarters of action, outscoring the Huskies 13-9 in both the second and third quarters, taking a 25-20 halftime lead and a 38-29 lead into the final eight minutes of play.

Both teams battled back and forth in the final frame, with Heartland gaining a narrow 15-14 scoring advantage as the Mustangs held on for a 52-44 win to improve to 14-6 as they head into the final run of the regular season.
