Trojans roll past Quakers

PLAINFIELD — For its number of match wins, Plainfield’s wrestling team was just one point shy of its best possible team score in Wednesday evening’s dual meet with the Center Grove Trojans. However, that efficiency was not enough to overcome the Trojans’ team strength as Plainfield lost 50-29 in a contest that also celebrated Senior Night for the Quakers.

Plainfield won just five of the 13 contested matches, with four of those wins coming off pins and the fifth by technical fall. On the other side, Center Grove was also winning most of its matches convincingly. The Trojans recorded six pins and two decisions, plus benefitted from a Plainfield forfeit at 106 pounds.

Plainfield coach Paul Nicodemus said injuries played a factor in lineups for both teams.

“We are a little dinged up, and they are a little dinged up, and that is why I think there were eleven pins,” Nicodemus said. “We had some bright spots. For the most part, our guys that are experienced came through for us. Some of our young guys took their lumps, but hopefully they learned things they can work on.”

Nicodemus was proud to see two of his senior grapplers pull out victories in the meet, as both Corin McKee (138) and Triston Pantone(152) won by fall.

“I was really happy for Corin and Triston,” Nicodemus said. “They are both four-year starters who have been through so many practices and so many meets. It is nice that they were able to go out and take care of business.”

McKee stopped Nick Summers in 2:54, while Pantone was just a little quicker in dispatching Zach Davis.

Both wrestlers were happy to take wins in their final home matches.

“I have been a four-year varsity letterman, so this was bittersweet,” McKee said. “I wanted to go out with bang, and I was glad that I got the pin and six points for our team.”
