PCMS wrestling team sweeps duals with North Knox, Tecumseh, Wood Memorial Nine Pike Central Mid- dle School wrestlers went undefeated while sweep- ing to victory against North Knox 78 -12, Te- cumseh 84-6 and Wood Memorial 78 -12 in a four- team dual meet hosted by the Chargers on Tuesday, March 6. Eighth graders Jacob Leighty, Blaine Pitcher, Wyatt Frasure, Jon Can- non and Gunnar Ear- ley and seventh graders Tyrus Schoppenhorst, Ry- an Gladish, Cole Parks and Kale Speedy all went 3-0. "We wrestled really well tonight," McCain said. "We had a 24-point swing in our direction from the last time we wrestled Tecumseh. Everybody showed up ready to go to- night and it really showed. This meet really sets the tempo for us going into PAC this weekend." tion final for the 150 -pound weight class; and Adan San- chez, who won by forfeit in the consolation final for the 220 -pound weight class. Parks ended the season 17-7; Davis ended the sea- son 13-4; Cannon ended the season 18 -6; and San- chez ended the season 11-7. "Our consolation place winners are what propelled us to our great team finish," McCain said. "Cole and Kaden, who finished third, were both seeded lower than that, so to finish third in their weight classes was huge, especially for Kaden. He had a rough weight cut that morning, and made the weight with about five min- utes to spare. He was com- ing off the flu and a concus- sion from the week before. He really fought for that third-place finish today. The heart he showed today makes doing this all worth- while." "Jon came up a lit- tle short against a tough kid from Forest Park in the semis, but came back strong for third," McCain continued. "Jon really put in the work last offseason, going to some really good camps and weight training. He really has a desire to be the best, and is going to be a lot of fun to watch in high school." Two Chargers placed fourth – seventh grader Griffin Boyd (14-12) lost by a 15 -5 major decision to North Posey's Kaleb Bae- hl in the consolation final for the 75 -pound weight class; and seventh grader Jack Tegmeyer (15 -10) lost by pin to Forest Park's Lo- gan Ferguson in the conso- lation final for the 95 -pound weight class. Four Chargers placed fifth – Jacob Leighty (8 - 13) won by forfeit in the fifth-place match for the 80 -pound weight class; eighth grader Blaine Pitch- er (15 -9) won by pin over North Posey's Landon Ep- ley in the fifth-place match for the 125 -pound weight class; sixth grader Ricky Culbertson (12-10) won by pin over Tell City's Hunt- er Senn in the fifth-place match for the 132-pound weight class; and seventh grader Kale Speedy (10 - 8) won by forfeit in the fifth-place match for the 175 -pound weight class. One Charger placed sixth – seventh grader Ty- ler Schoppenhorst (10 -11) lost by technical fall to For- est Park's Patrick Recker in the fifth-place match for the 102-pound weight class. One other Charger com- peted in the 85 -pound weight class – sixth grader Gage Gorden – but did not place. As a team, Pike Cen- tral scored a total of 207 points, trailing Southridge (321.5 points) and Tell City (212.5). North Posey was fourth with 151 points, fol- lowed by Heritage Hills (148), South Spencer (120), Forest Park (111), Gibson Southern (106) and Tecum- seh (70). "I am beyond pleased with how we wrestled as a team this weekend," Mc- Cain said. "A fter a tough loss to North Posey last week, I really thought we would end up a solid fourth place as a team. But these young men had other plans. We not only outscored North Posey by 56 points, we missed second place by just 5.5 points. We took 15 kids and placed 14. That is outstanding." McCain described the middle school wrestling team's abbreviated season – which began on Feb. 13 – as "a lot of fun." "The group of kids we had really worked hard, were disciplined, and were a real pleasure to coach," McCain said. "We have 10 eighth graders moving up to high school. Every one of these guys are hun- gry and want to get better. We are starting offseason next week and every one of these guys are chomping at the bit to get to work. They are going to be a real treat to coach in high school. Coach (Billy) Hewig and I are very excited about what the future holds."
