Knights finish fourth at wrestling invitational

Sunday, December 14, 2008

Times Staff Report

The Northview Knights put together a 2-3 dual match record during their wrestling invitational on Saturday afternoon to place fourth.

The Plainfield Quakers nudged out South Vermillion for the overall team honors despite tying 33-all when the squads matched up on the mat.

The Quakers earned the win via tiebreaker in individual matches won after the first tiebreaker wasn't enough to provide a winner.

Terre Haute North went 3-2 on the day for third-place with Brown County (1-4) and West Vigo (0-5) rounding out the field.

The Knights had four competitors that won four of five matches in the tourney, but only Luke Pingleton was a class winner. The 125-pound junior improved to 10-2 this season.

Other Knights to win four matches included Caleb Nicosin at 103 pounds, Brady Silvers at 160 pounds and Tommy Holifield at 189.

Though they won only once in head-to-head team competition, Brown County crowned champions at 130 (Quincy Richey), 135 (Mitchell Richey) and 140 (Zach Wojdyla). South Vermillion got undefeated afternoons from Cole Huber (112) and Ross Hoggatt (145).

Terre Haute North competitors owned the top weight classes as Dan Delisle (171), Zach Edington (189), David Knight (215) and Lance Lloyd (285) each were unbeaten and won their weight classes.

The Quakers go class championships at 119 from Kaleb Heald and Gary Tackett at 152.

The Knights very nearly upset Plainfield in their final match, falling just 39-33, showing just how important match-ups are in a dual match set up.

Also for the Knights, Brandon Mikesell won a pair of matches at 135 pounds and one over West Vigo at 140 pounds. Aaron See scored a 3-1 mark at 171 pounds and both Austin Sciotto and Austin Bell won two matches.

The tourney featured some of the state's top retuning wrestlers as South Vermillion's Bohannon qualified for the state finals at 125 pounds last year, Brown County's Mitchell Richey was a state qualifier at 112 pounds and Wojdyla reached the semistate along with the Knights' Pingleton.

Northview returns to dual match action with a road trip to Edgewood on Wednesday evening for a 6 p.m. match.
