Danville wins third title in four seasons

Bruins finish eighth

After fighting through some injuries earlier in the season, the Danville wrestling team seems to be peaking at the right time. At the Sagamore Conference championship this past weekend, the Warriors captured their third title in four seasons and avenged an early season dual meet loss to North Montgomery in the process.

Danville (260) bested second-place North Montgomery (212.50) by 47.5 points. Southmont placed third, followed by Lebanon, Frankfort, Western Boone, Crawfordsville, and Tri-West.

Danville had 13 grapplers place in the top four with six champions, two runner-ups, and four third-place finishers, along with a fourth- and a fifth-place finisher.

“A great team performance,” Danville coach Steve Pugliese said. “The kids wrestled hard and competed in every match. In addition, North Montgomery had beaten us (earlier) and there was a lot of talk about how they should have been at team state and that they were a better team than us.”

Two of Danville’s freshmen had a stellar outing for the Warriors.

Brock Hudkins (106) , undefeated since returning to the line up, pinned each opponent en route to his first conference championship. No. 11-ranked Elliott Molloy (113) bested his North Montgomery opponent, who he defeated by just one point earlier in the year, by a major decision in the finals.

While the younger wrestlers did shine, the Warriors also counted on some of their veterans, most importantly seniors Neal Molloy (145) and Brayden Montgomery (152).

No. 1-ranked N. Molloy collected his fourth consecutive conference title, winning by a major decision over No. 7-rated Colin Campbell of Lebanon.

No. 8-rated Montgomery won his second conference title with a 7-5 overtime win over North Montgomery’s Nick Borta, ranked No. 7 in the state.

Juniors Asa Lynch (170) and Autry Pickens each claimed individual titles for the Warriors. Lynch defeated the No. 1-seed before winning his title in overtime with a takedown while Pickens scored two major decisions and a fall.
