The Wabash Valley Wrestling Club had an exceptional weekend at the Jennings County Tournament, winning an incredible 19-of-19 matches on the day which gave them seven championships overall.
The tourney used a unique system in which a competitor had to win two out of three periods to defeat his opponent, the exception being a pin which automatically ended the bout. A five point throw would also end a period automatically.
Keiontre Wilkey won all four of his matches in the Midget, 55-pound class by defeating his first opponent, Brit Cook Madison by a 7-0, 7-0 score and then dropped William Cook of Jeffersonville in an impressive 11 second fall. Wilkey continued to dominate when he faced off and defeated his final two opponents by fall for a 4-0 afternoon.
At 98 pounds, Luke Pingleton won his only match of the day by a 6-0, 5-6, 4-0 decision and Chris Craft was a winner in the 125-pound, Junior Class by defeating Bryan Dewar of Commiskey, 5-0, 8-2 and Ryan Alcorn of North Vernon by injury default.
In the Cadet, 125-pound division, Beau Pingleton also was a perfect 4-0 on the day, starting off with a 6-3, 6-1 decision against West Harrison's Casey Jones and followed that by blanking Tyler Barnes of Indianapolis, 6-0, 7-0. Pingleton continued his streak by downing Luke Arnold, 6-0, 8-1 and capped the perfect day by defeating Alex Bailey of Jeffersonville by fall.
At 160 pounds, Tommy Herr-Smith won both his matches in the Cadet Class, beating Cody Eltringham 8-4, 6-0 and Blake Trepanier by fall.
Tommy Holifield won all three of his matches in the tourney, two of them by fall and a 3-0, 7-0 decision against Ashton Brenley of Columbus.
In the Schoolboy, 120-pound division, Brandon Mikesell squeaked by his first opponent with back-to-back, 1-0 decisions and then pinned his second opponent to remain unbeaten on the afternoon.
