Danville takes fourth, Tri-West eighth at conference

After winning the last three out of four Sagamore Conference wrestling titles, including last season, Danville’s run of dominance seemingly came to an end Saturday at Crawfordsville.

The Warriors finished fourth with 141.5 points behind winner North Montgomery (243.5), Lebanon (214) and South Montgomery (208.5). Tri-West placed eighth with 64 points.

“To be honest, it was disappointing,” Danville coach Steve Pugliese said. “I was pleased with the way the kids wrestled, but we had two kids not show up today and they were No. 1 seeds. We went with what we had and if we had a full lineup, I thought we could’ve competed.”

Danville had two champions and two runners-up on the day, but overall depth hurt the Warriors, although everyone that wrestled placed in the top six.

Brock Hudkins (120) pinned his way to a championship, winning all three matches by fall. Elliot Molloy (126) won his championship in overtime after taking his first two matches by tech fall and decision, respectively.

“Brock was solid the entire day,” Pugliese said. “Elliot came back and beat Moore, who was trying to win a fourth conference title. It was good to see him wrestle well.”

Kody Caudle (160) and Kyle Smith (132) were each bested in the finals, taking second.

“Kody was really overmatched and (his opponent) was on a different level, constantly attacking and in good position,” Pugliese said. “That’s how we want to teach our kids to wrestle. That’s the difference between a guy who was a regional qualifier and a state place winner last year.

“Kyle wrestled well up until the finals and lost to that guy 5-4, but today he didn’t really wrestle the way he’s capable.”

After Brock Martin (195) took fourth, no other Danville wrestler finished in the top four.

A young Tri-West team placed only one grappler in the top-four of the conference, making for a disappointing finish.
