Carmel wrestling tops Bulldogs on Senior Night

BROWNSBURG — With IHSAA sectional competition a little more than six weeks away, the Brownsburg Bulldogs wrestling team came up short on Senior Night, losing a 38-18 against a tough Carmel Greyhounds squad on Wednesday.

Though Carmel only held a 2-1 advantage in bouts decided by pin, the Greyhounds scored an overall 9-5 edge in match wins, more than doubling the Bulldogs’ team total. Brownsburg fought to decisions in most weight classes, but were unable to claim wins.

Falling shy against a very good Carmel team was a sore spot for Bulldogs coach Darrick Snyder.

“The bottom line is that we have improved our schedule,” Snyder said. “We could have lined up an easy victory on Senior Night, but to get to the highest level, we need to wrestle the best. We have beaten teams that have holes (in their lineups) or are still in the rebuilding process. But, we need to start beating the better teams in the state.”

Carmel gained its two pins in the first two individual clashes, taking a 12-0 lead in the team score. Brownsburg was never able to cut the lead out of double digits,and the outcome was decided very early in the evening.

“This was a big improvement over last week against Avon,” Snyder said. “But, the bottom line is that it still is not good enough. We still do not have enough mat awareness.”

The lone fall for the Bulldogs came at 285 pounds as senior Zachary Rumschlag built up a 22-9 lead over DeShawn Williams into the third period before pinning him.

None of the other wins came easy for the Bulldogs, as the largest decision difference in Brownsburg’s favor was by just four points.

The closest match of the night came at 113 pounds where Brownsburg moved up 106-pound varsity starter Nick Weaver to the heavier class against Carmel’s Andrew Hayes. Weaver and Hayes dueled to a scoreless tie in three periods, but Weaver got the lone takedown in overtime for the 2-0 decision.
