Knights finish 9th as Grigsby wins 125 title

Friday, January 2, 2004

- Knights place eight grapplers in top-eight

MOORESVILLE -- While most people were relaxing and enjoying a peaceful vacation over the holidays, Northview's wrestling team was doing battle at the Mooresville Holiday Classic Tournament early this week.

The Knights scored ninth place team points against a 16-team field this year with eight of their members earning top-eight finishes.

Cory Grigsby topped the list by taking the 125 pound title with an impressive 10-3 decision over Evansville Central's Rick Schofield to take the championship at 125 pounds.

Grigsby moved like a buzzsaw through the ranks of the tournaments athletes with a forfeit in the first round followed by a pin in 1:27 over Ben Lampkins of Castle. Up next was Collin Carlucci of Plainfield who eventually earned third place, but lost by major decision, 11-2, to Grigsby which set him up for the title match.

The four wins advances Grigsby to 24-1 this season while Schofield dropped to 17-1 this year.

At heavyweight, Tony Sanabria dropped his first opponent in the two-day tournament, Richie Hammond of Terre Haute South, by fall before defeating Jennings County's Shane Jackson in a 7-5 decision to move to the quarterfinals. Facing Hamilton Southeastern's Sam Kinley, Sanabria registered another pin before falling to Jeremy Helton of Seymour in the championship match.

The loss was just the fourth of the season for Sanabria against 20 victories.

At 135 pounds, Austin Staley used a fall versus Seymour's Cody Hill in just 1:42 and a Major Decision over Tye Steuck of Valparaiso to advance to the quarterfinals before falling to eventual champion Chris Paulley of Corydon in a tight 3-2 double-overtime match.

Staley would then earn another two victories on his way to a third place finish for the tournament. Staley's four victories in the tournament moved him to 21-4 this season.

The Knights would get eighth place finishes from Chris Dean at 140 pounds, Brent Withers at 145 pounds and Cory Allen at 152 before Doug Porter earned a sixth place finish at 160 pounds.

Porter would win his first match by forfeit before dropping a major decision to eventual champion John Cramsey of Crawfordsville in the second round. However, Porter would rebound with two more wins to earn the sixth place finish. The wins earned him a 17-9 overall mark for the year.

At 215 pounds, Jeremiah Allen continued his strong season with a sixth place finish.

Allen earned pins in his first two matches before losing by fall in the quarterfinals. He moved to 15-8 this year after the tournament.

Hamilton Southeastern earned the most team points with 208.5 and a total of six top-three wrestlers, including three champions. Plainfield placed second with 176.5 and Jennings County placed third with 164.5.

Up next for the Knights will be a January 8th matchup on the road with Vigo County rival Terre Haute South beginning at 6 p.m.
