CHESANING - The mood afterward for Alma’s wrestlers was in stark contrast to five days prior.

On Saturday, the Panthers won the 24-team Tri-Valley Conference tournament hosted by Shepherd for the first time in program history.

With plenty of steam heading into Thursday’s Division 3 team districts at Chesaning following the stellar showing over the weekend, Alma instead fell flat in what was a 42-27 loss to the host Indians in the district championship dual.

The Panthers defeated Ovid-Elsie 56-17 in the district semifinal to set up the showdown with Chesaning, which they had beaten during the regular season to help clinch their first conference title since 1992.

“Our kids overachieved last week by far,” Alma coach Randy Miniard said. “They all wrestled tough, they wrestled hard. Tonight, maybe I put too much pressure on them. Chesaning did its homework. They got their guys down to weight. We couldn’t get our guys up to weight.”

Sage Gonzales (152) got the Panthers started in fine fashion as he posted a pin, but a pair of pins by Chesaning followed to give it a 12-6 advantage.

Although Alma managed to win the next match by decision, the Indians proceeded to reel off 24 consecutive points to take a commanding 36-9 lead.

The Panthers would claw back to cut their deficit to 36-24 before the clinching decision at the 140-pound weight class gave the district title to Chesaning.

"We've traveled all year and we've traveled well," Miniard added. "We beat them here for the conference title. We came in here tonight and we weren't all here. That's on me."
