Warriors repeat as sectional champions

AVON — AVON — After several years of knocking at the county wrestling door, Danville’s wrestling program has truly arrived. Following last season’s sectional title with a county championship this year, and after adding another sectional title on Saturday, the Warriors now have a solid foothold.

Leading by 22 points headed into the final round of wrestling at Avon, the Warriors had a bit of a cushion. Danville widened that margin just a bit through the last round of wrestling action, taking the win by 26.5 points over second-place Avon.

That’s a complete sweep for the Warriors this season as they’ve taken conference, county, and sectional titles. For Danville coach Steve Pugliese, this season’s sectional win may be a bit more satisfying than last year’s.

“It’s good to repeat,” he said. “That way, it’s not just a one time, flash-in-the-pan type of deal. We kind of backed it up and after winning by a half point last year and winning by a much larger margin this year speaks to the depth we have now.”

Danville had four champions on the day and two of them — Neal Molloy (145) and Brayden Montgomery (152) — became four-time sectional champions. But as satisfied as both felt afterward, it was the team accomplishment and legacy they’ll be leaving that really hit home for the pair of seniors.

“It feels pretty good, but I’m just glad we got another team championship to add to our team collection,” Montgomery said. “This year we were the favorites and we were on both ends of it after being underdogs last season. I thought that’s what was really neat about it. It’s important to set a lot of tradition because we don’t have a lot of that. It’s important to set that.
