Avon grapplers topple Plainfield

PLAINFIELD — In a wrestling match that featured 10 falls of the 14 weight classes between Avon and Plainfield Tuesday night, action was swift and deliberate.

Unfortunately for host Plainfield, Avon racked up seven pins on its way to a 50-24 victory.

While Avon dominated most matches, it is still very early in the season as it was both squads’ opening matches.

Avon coach Israel Blevins said he was pleased with most everything, but stressed there is room for improvement.

“We pinned and we got pinned, we can’t make mistakes and go to our back like that,” Blevins said. “Some match awareness mistakes were made, there were some conditioning issues we will get fixed and we’ve got a couple of new guys without varsity experience and they will have to learn as we go.

“It’s a win and that’s what we told the kids, but there were mistakes made and that’s something we will go back and look at so we don’t make the same mistake and build from there.”

Plainfield coach Paul Nicodemus knew the Quakers might be a bit overmatched going into the night.

“You can tell Avon put the time in the offseason and I had very few that did in the offseason,” he said. “We will work hard in the room to make that happen and hopefully narrow the gap. It’s so early in the season, this is a good test for us.”

Five of Avon’s seven falls on the night came in the first period as Quintin Driskell (113), Quinn Harris (132), Brendon Helm (170), Evan Elmore (182), and Guy Henson (285) all put Plainfield wrestlers out early with pins.

“I think tonight was Driskell’s first varsity match and it was good to see him get a pin,” Blevins said. “It was good to see (Elmore) and (Helm) do well as we expect wins from them nearly every time because that’s the caliber of wrestlers they are.”
