Avon takes down Brownsburg

AVON — First-year Brownsburg wrestling coach Darrick Snyder didn’t mince words when describing his team’s loss to its county and Hoosier Crossroads Conference rival Thursday night.

Avon cruised past Brownsburg to a 51-13 victory, taking 11 of 14 matches along the way.

“I don’t think you can call it a rivalry when it’s 51-13,” Snyder said. “I feel bad for Avon, we wasted a night. (Avon) would have gotten better practicing.”

On the other side, Avon coach Israel Blevins said he was pleased with his grapplers' performances across the board.

“Really, it was a collective effort and it was nice to see,” Blevins said. “I think the kids did a great job of that when they were in a situation to finish a match, they took advantage of it with scoring bonus points … and that was the most impressive part.”

Brownsburg’s Charles Damler (152) started out the match with a dominating major decision over Avon’s Michael Kuzma.

After that, Avon won eight straight as David Frank (160), Shane Dillehay (195), Guy Henson (285), and Luke Kimery (106) all won by fall; Brian Rassbach (113) won by technical fall; and Tarence French (170), Evan Elmore (182) and Gunnar Larson (220) all took decisions.

“It’s a lot easier to go out and win when you see your teammates winning before you,” Blevins said.

Trailing 38-4, the Bulldogs needed something to go their way.

Brownsburg’s Connor Allen (120) broke the Orioles’ momentum with his decision over Avon’s Bailey Chatterton. Teammate Troy Owen followed that victory with a third-period pin for Brownsburg’s last win of the night.

Avon went on to take the next three matches in succession.

Avon’s Quinton Harris (132) scored a major decision, Nick Etienne (138) followed that with a decision and Marcus Miranda (152) fittingly ended the night with a fall.

Blevins said Avon has been suffering through some injuries and sickness and has been trying to get the Orioles healthy. While that’s occurring, the depth of the squad has been very important to Avon’s success as guys like French have kept Avon rolling along.
