Orioles fifth, Bulldogs seventh at HCC

FISHERS — The No. 10 Hamilton Southeastern wrestling squad ran away with the Hoosier Crossroads Conference championship last Saturday, but there was no clear indication of where any of teams past second place would finish until the end of the day arrived.

Hamilton Southeastern had a 36-point lead heading into the championship finals. Host Noblesville, who placed second, finished the day with 137 points, fifth-place Avon tallied 127, and seventh-place Brownsburg scored 114.

“Between second and seventh place was 20 points, which is just unheard of,” Brownsburg coach Jason Catellier said. “That’s really just two wrestlers stepping up and doing better than what they did.”

It was difficult for Avon coach Israel Blevins to not think about Avon’s 10-point differential from fifth to second. The Orioles were without Brendon Helm in the 160-pound weight class.

“He was the third seed,” Blevin said. “He would have scored more than 10 points, I’m sure, which would have put us up there for second place. That’s definitely encouraging and hopefully, we can get some momentum off of that.

“Wednesday night we laid a big egg against Ben Davis, did not wrestle very well, and it was a good turnaround for us, especially knowing that we were only 10 points out of second and our 160-pounder didn’t wrestle.”

Entering the meet, Blevins said he knew the Royals were the clear favorite and that the Orioles could place anywhere from second to eighth. He said he didn’t know the scores would be as close as they were and every point would count.

Avon had 12 of its 14 wrestlers place, six of which were unseeded entering the tournament. The Orioles had two champions, Jonah Zorniger (182) and Dylan Jones (220).

“They were seeded first, finished first, that’s always good,” Blevins said. “It was just a good team effort, a lot of kids placed who weren’t seeded.”
