Staff report

LANSINGBURGH -- A bit of shuffling around didn't faze the Amsterdam High School wrestling team at all.

With the schedule changed around Friday on the opening day of the Lansingburgh Duals, the Rams faced three daunting dual meets and came away from the day with a perfect record heading into the second day of competition today.

Amsterdam opened the tournament with a 31-25 win over Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk, then had a slightly more comfortable 50-27 win over Mohonasen before pulling out a hard-fought 37-35 victory over a Cortland team that Amsterdam head coach Ken Benton called the top squad in the field.

"They changed the matchups on us, and we had a tougher grouping," Benton said. "The kids really stepped it up today."
