Hinrichs earns 150th win

Hinrichs is congratulated by head coach Ron Gerber and assistant Jason Majors following his 150th win Saturday. Hinrichs needs seven more wins to take over Lee Carlson for second on the all-time wins chart in Sutton. Tyler Bailey is atop the wins list at Sutton with 169 career wins as a Mustang, as Hinrichs will need 17 wins to overtake the top spot in his final six meets this year.

It took Sutton senior Joe Hinrichs just 21 seconds to reach a milestone in his wrestling career with the Mustangs, as Hinrichs, with a 21-second pinfall win over Overton’s Dylan Pooschke, reached the 150 win plateau during his high school career, joining only two other Mustangs that have achieved the career mark.

In all, Hinrichs claimed eight wins last weekend in action at both the Superior Invite and the Shelton Invite, finishing the weekend with a 153-18 record.

He sits third overall in career wins at Sutton and is chasing both Lee Carlson and Tyler Bailey for the lead in wins as a Mustang grappler.

Mustangs claim overtime win over Centurions 59-54

The Sutton Mustangs had to hang on for dear life during their first game of the 2021 portion of the season, as a huge nine-point scoring spree in the final 26 seconds of regulation by senior Cade Wiseman sent their bout with Centura on Tuesday, Jan. 5 into overtime. The Mustangs took full control, scoring the bonus period’s first eight points to preserve a come-frombehind 59-54 win over the Centurions.

The two teams battled to a 17-17 halftime tie before Centura grabbed a 13-9 scoring edge in the third quarter to lead 30-26 going into the fourth quarter.

Sutton, behind Wiseman’s fourth quarter heroics that sent the game into overtime with an off balance three-pointer with 3.8 seconds left in regulation, improved to 6-3 with the win, while shooting 34 percent from the floor, making 17 of 50 shots, while going 19-29 at the foul line (65.5%).

For the first time in recent seasons, it was Cardinals versus Cougars, as Harvard hosted Sandy Creek Jan. 5, sending the Cougars home with their first win of the season.

Despite Harvard earning the first basket of the night, it was Sandy Creek who grabbed the lead, ending the first quarter 8-3.

A close second-quarter run by both teams allowed SC to keep the lead heading into halftime, but gave Harvard an advantage to overcome the Cougars, ending the second quarter, 11-8, SC.

A series of layups by Harvard pushed the host team ahead by four at the end of the third quarter, 18-14, as the Cards earned 10 points with SC only sinking three.

However, it would be the final period of the game where the Cougars came alive, earning 13 points over Harvard’s three, and ultimately giving them their first ‘W’ of the season with the 27-21 win.
