North Clay grapplers kick off season with road victory

Thursday, February 9, 2006

The North Clay wrestling team kicked off its season with a win over host Martinsville West on Tuesday evening, 63-53.

The Knights put together a pair of four class winning streaks in the middle and upper weights to sustain the win, earning bonus points in seven of the eight weight classes.

North Clay struggled in the lower weights, falling in five straight classes from 95 to 115 pounds before getting a fall in 1:41 from Brandon Mikesell at 120 pounds against Jared Litton. Chris Payne sustained the streak with a narrow 2-1 decision against Steve Hollitt and then Broc Potter put Matt Callon on his back in an impressive 11 second pin. Conor Strain capped the first run by receiving a forfeit at the 135 pound level.

The Knights lost some points via forfeit at 140, but picked right up where they left off one class later by getting a forfeit at 145 from Kody Brattain.

At 155, Jordan Nelson dropped Jon Swaffore of Martinsville in 2:18, Tommy Holifield got a forfeit at 165 and Brad Powell got a pin in just 21 seconds over Justin Wieble at 180. Beau Judd would get an injury default at 275.

Other winners for the Knights were Caleb Nicosin, via forfeit at 70 pounds and Luke Pingleton (90 lb.) also got a forfeit for the victorious Knights who will now face Edgewood in their home opener this evening at 6 p.m.
