County grapplers return to the mat


The Warriors are looking for their first county title since the early 1970s and their third conference title in four years.


A balanced group of veterans look to lead Brownsburg into the 2012 wrestling season.

Coach Jason Catellier is expecting seniors Austen Arnold (126), Connor Ludwig (182), and Tyler Harlan (220) and junior Johnny Cimmerman (138) to pace the Bulldogs.

“I have a high expectation for this year’s team,” he said. “We have a pretty solid group of seniors and a really good core of juniors and sophomores.”

He said Brownsburg should be particularly strong in certain areas.

“Right now our biggest strengths are down low from 126 to 145 and up high from 170 to heavyweight,” he said. “We’re pretty solid. We’ve always been solid in the upper weight classes and we’re going to continue that for the next couple of years.”

After finishing second in 2010 and third in ‘11, the Bulldogs have one focus: to win the county championship.

“All the teams in our county are getting a lot better but our No. 1 goal at the start of the season is to win county and I think we have a team that can do it,” Catellier said.

Junior Paul Thomas (145) will return. Thomas suffered a knee injury before county last season but was 20-2 to that point.

“He’s working hard and doing what he can do to come back,” Catellier said.

Freshman C.J. Damler (152) and Nick Weaver (106) are newcomers looking to make an impact immediately.

“Both of those kids were county champions in middle school so I expect them to contribute pretty well,” Catellier said.

The Bulldogs will kick off the season Saturday with a Brownsburg Invite. Other teams competing will be Plainfield, North Putnam, South Putnam, and Crawfordsville.


Following a fourth at county last season and fifth-place finishes in the Mid-State Conference and at sectional, the Plainfield Quakers’ wrestling team returns with more confidence and a renewed effort this year in hopes of bettering those finishes.
