Tri-West takes down North Putnam

LIZTON — Tri-West’s wrestling team moved to a .500 mark on the season Tuesday night with a 51-22 win over visiting North Putnam. The Bruins now set at 3-3 on the year and continue to improve each match.

“The young guys came out and stepped it up and our older guys, the couple that we have, showed some heart.,” Tri-West coach Nick Sullivan said. “We are definitely more aggressive than we were last week at Mooresville.”

Tri-West has 20 grapplers on its varsity roster including three seniors, four sophomores and 13 freshmen. That makes the Bruins’ learning curve pretty steep in the practice room and in varsity matches, especially against teams that have more overall experience.

But Tri-West has begun to round into form and take shape.

“To come out and wrestle pretty well and hit some things we’ve worked on in practice and to see us execute that and not just luck into moves was good to see,” Sullivan said. “What the young kids have to learn is the intensity that the other schools bring and the older kids bring. They need to learn to match that intensity and raise their level and that starts in practice.”

North Putnam forfeited four matches and the Tri-West beneficiaries of those bouts were DaVaughn Anderson (106), Tanner Arnell (120), Jake Ruschmeier (170), and Marcus Anderson (195).

Tri-West’s Justin Graham (113), Tony Kahl (182) and Austin Staton (285) all won by decision. Kahl gutted out a 4-2 win over North Putnam’s Ben Wiatt despite giving up at least 10 pounds as he wrestled up a weight class.

“(Tony) shows a lot of fight,” Sullivan said. “If I ask him to wrestle (up) he’s like ‘no problem.’ We’re proud of his heart and desire to perform.”

Justin Davis (126), Rick Perry (152), and Adam King (160) all won by fall for the Bruins.
