BLOOMINGTON -- Northview's wrestling team opened the season a bit shorthanded due to illness and had an ill-timed match-up against the No. 12 team in the state, Bloomington South.
The Panthers came away with a decisive victory, 70-6, and scored falls in eight of the 13 weight class victories. Beau Judd was the lone winner for the Knights, picking up a pin at 285 against Colton Dixon in 1:45.
The Panthers earned wins in a couple of other close matches as Panther freshman Bryce Vandivier won over Austin Bell, 5-2 at 119 pounds. Sam Horrock won a narrow 3-2 decision against Brandon Mikesell at 145 pounds. Bloomington South also earned forfeit victories at 125 and 130 pounds.
The Knights are back in action at the Westfield Great 8 Tourney on Saturday at 8:30 a.m.
