Danville's Molloy becomes two-time state champion

County places five wrestlers at state tournament

(Continued)

INDIANAPOLIS —

“I just went out and wrestled and this is something else,” Hudkins said. “I’ve wrestled in big places and big matches, a lot of Team Indiana teams and this is just like it with tough competition. I wouldn’t say I had a bad day. I wrestled to the fullest, but I wish I could have changed what place I got. I wrestled the hardest I could and I had no regrets afterwards, they were really good.”

Montgomery, a senior, has come a long way in his tenure with the Warriors and closed his career with a sixth place finish. After advancing past the first round Friday night, Montgomery, like Hudkins, lost to the eventual state runner-up. A loss in his last prep match dropped Montgomery to sixth.

“I didn’t want that to happen again and put in the work all year,” Montgomery said of his Friday night last season. “I wish I would have ended my career with a win but I can’t say I haven’t had fun here. We have some guys on the team that make it worth being here… and that’s what I loved about this team.”

Pugliese beamed with pride when talking about the accomplishments of the program and how far it has come thanks to the dedication and hard work of his wrestlers. Of the 69 teams represented in the state finals, Danville finished tied for 11th.

“We’ve never had more than one guy place in any year,” Pugliese said. “So, to win all three matches last night and bring home three medals, and more importantly bring home three guys in the top six, it is just a product of what we’ve been doing the last six years at Danville.”

Brownsburg’s Connor Ludwig started the day up against a state runner-up from last season and this year — Perry Meridian’s Jake Masengale — and could not get past him. Another loss in overtime put the Bulldog in the seventh and eighth place match, one he won by injury default for seventh.
