BLOOMINGTON -- Saturday's Bloomington South Wrestling Regional will go down as a mostly forgettable day for Northview competitors. Or at least one that they would rather put behind them.

After sending nine wrestlers to the regional round, only one will be moving on to the semi-state.

Luke Pingleton was able to win his first round match-up with Tim Shuler of Columbus East via pin in just 39 seconds to move into the semifinals. Bloomington South's top-seeded Brannigan Barlow knocked Pingleton off with a second round pin before the Knight bounced back to win the third-place match, 12-5 over Columbus North's Cody McGaha.

Barlow went on to win the 135-pound division over Terre Haute South's Jordan Jensen, 4-0.

The remaining eight Northview wrestlers fell in first round competition, which eliminated their chances of advancing to the semi-state. The top-four place winners advance.

In the 103-pound division, Caleb Nicosin lost via a major decision, 17-2 to Devon Orben of Columbus North. At 112, Skyler Hall lost by pin in 5:43 to Jennings County competitor, Marshall Holwager. In the 119-pound class, Austin Bell dropped a 7-1 decision to Jennings County.

In the 152-pound class, freshman Larry Shaffer lost his opener to eventual champion, Quincy Richey of Brown County, 14-3. Brady Silvers lost his first round match at 160 pounds, 8-3 to Justin Baldwin of Jennings County.

In the 189-pound class, Brandon Pleake fell 11-3 to Lyan Bass of Jennings County and at 215, Aaron See was disqualified due to flagrant misconduct.

Beau Judd lost a narrow first round decision to Jordan Blakemore of Madison.

Terre Haute South's Dakota Case was a winner at 125 pounds while West Vigo's Levi Edwards advanced with a third-place at 119 pounds. David Knight of Terre Haute North was the runner-up at 215, Holden Fudurich of Sullivan moves on with a second at 160 and Jordan Jensen was second at 135.

The Evansville Reitz Semi-state begins on Saturday at 9 a.m. in Roberts Stadium.
