Giants place third at MIC

Moss takes fourth title

INDIANAPOLIS — The Ben Davis wrestling team traveled to Warren Central for the annual MIC Tournament on Jan. 19. Favorite and No. 4-ranked Warren Central hosted and won the event with a total of 261 points.

Center Grove scored 227 for second place, and the Giants followed in third with 172. Carmel came in fourth, one point shy of third.

“We said we could finish in the top two or three, and now I feel better because we beat Carmel twice [earlier in the season],” Ben Davis coach Aaron Moss said. “We finished the day well.”

The Giants had 10 of 14 wrestlers win their first match and were ranked a solid third after the first round. They trailed Warren Central by 17 and Center Grove by just four.

Then, the second round came and so did the losses.

Only three of the Giants’ 10 wrestlers advanced to their respective championship match and Ben Davis sat in fourth for the rest of the day.

In many of those semifinal matches, Ben Davis entered as the lower seed. Daniel McCarty (106) was the only lower seed to win. The sophomore won in a 4-3 tiebreaker against Terre Haute South senior Ryan Uppal (27-3).

At 285, Norman Oglesby suffered a sudden defeat in overtime to his Warren Central opponent. However, his victory in the third-place match (the final match of the day) gave the Giants enough points for third.

“Norman is a stud, we’re excited to see what he can do,” Moss said. “We’ve got a couple of other guys that we’re trying to get squared away for next week.”

One of those guys might be sophomore Dylan Lydy at 145. He was upset in the second round but did finish in third.

“It was one of the worst matches I’ve probably seen Dylan wrestle, but he bounced back and had a solid match for third,” Moss said. “He’s young, he’s only been wrestling for three years, so he’s got a lot to learn and a lot to do and we’ll see if we can get him there.”
