Ponies pin Lewistown
In their final match of 2010, the Havre High wrestling team went to Lewistown and put on a dominating performance.
On Tuesday night, HHS toppled Central A rival Lewistown 50-31 in dual action. The Ponies got a huge 6-0 win from junior Eli Hinebauch at 152 pounds. Hinebauch was taking on top-ranked 145-pounder Rex Martin. Lewistown also gave up forfeits at 119 pounds, 189 pounds and 215 pounds on Tuesday night.
In the new Class A rankings, which were released on Tuesday night, the Ponies are not ranked No. 1 for the first time in over a year.
