Warriors repeat as sectional champions



“I have to give credit to our coaches because they’ve turned this program around. We were placing ninth at sectionals when Steve (Pugliese) came in. He’s turned it around and everybody is competing. I hope we can just keep this going.”

Molloy was happy with his victory, but shared Montgomery’s sentiments about the team accomplishment and the coaches.

“I’ve worked hard and it’s a good feeling,” Molloy said. “I did my job and the team did great, winning their second sectional. It’s awesome. These guys put their time in and it feels good. It’s a huge deal. I’ve said this a lot, but (coach) Pugliese brought us up from rock bottom.”

Also bringing home championships for the Warriors were a pair of freshmen that Molloy and Montgomery can now hand the torch off to. Molloy won’t have to travel far to find one of them, probably just down the hall of his house.

Elliott Molloy (113), Neal’s brother, and Brock Hudkins (103) each won their final matches with Hudkins scoring an 18-0 technical fall and Molloy taking a 9-4 decision.

For the Orioles, who also finished second to Danville in the county, the loss was disappointing, but not unanticipated.

“Probably as expected, I guess,” Avon coach Israel Blevins said. “For the most part, we wrestled as we were seeded.”

Avon also took home four titles as Dylan Jones (220) repeated as a sectional champion and Nick Etienne (120), Brendon Helm (160), and Evan Elmore (170) all took wins.

Brownsburg had two champions on the day with senior Austen Arnold (126) winning by a 15-0 tech fall and Connor Ludwig (182) taking an epic match, 2-1, over Avon’s Jonah Zorniger.

Ludwig and Zorniger have battled multiple times over the past two seasons with Ludwig’s sole victory coming last year in the form of a regional championship.
