Anaconda Wrestler Gets Pin After Spraining Ankle

Posted: Updated:


Anaconda senior Ethan Reich has wrestled since he was four years old. He says it's you against the other person to see whose the better man. Last week wrestling Belgrade, Reich sprained his left ankle during the first period.

"When I went to pick the kid up and put him back down on the mat I just heard a loud pop and then I just grab for my ankle but didn't want to give up a reversal," said Ethan Reich.

"I thought we can call it, and he said no. He said I want to finish. And I said Ok. So I was still leary of letting him wrestle," said Anaconda wrestling coach Jerry Arneson.

 

But Reich kept wresting, and pinned his opponent even with the pain of a high ankle sprain. He made his coach feel

"Proud. You sit there and go sweet. It's like how did he do it? He sucked it up for the team," said Arneson.

"I figured it was going to be a close duel so I wanted to give my team 6 points. and hopefully we could have come home with a duel win that would have been cool," said Reich.

Reich is tough because he knows his time on the mat is coming to an end.

"I think it comes from cause this is my last year ever doing high school wrestling  again and I have a month left ever again on the mat in front of a crowd," said Reich.

"You can't teach that mental toughness. It's something I can't teach. He's got it. Either you have it or you don't. He has it," said Arneson.


Reich is healing the ankle now, but his goal is to make it back for senior night next Thursday. Ever since he was a young boy he's always wanted to win.

"Since he was little he's always wanted to be at the top of the podium or be the best at football or wherever he had a great football season. Great athlete great student too he's on the honor roll," said Arneson.
