Ben Davis seniors Cesar Gutierrez and Levi Moss took care of their competitions to join McCarty as the only three wrestlers to reach their respective championship matches.
Gutierrez and McCarty both lost in their championship matches, finishing second. Gutierrez lost in a tiebreaker.
Moss won at 132 pounds. In the final, he pinned Warren Central’s Trent Pruitt at the 1:18 mark of the first period. He continued his undefeated season (25-0), recording his 143rd career win and his fourth straight MIC title.
“It’s great to do it your senior year,” Moss said. “Not a lot of people have done it. It means a lot.”
The Giants fared well in the consolation brackets, which helped their total score. Only one wrestler took home an eighth-place finish.
Along with Lydy and Oglesby, Jacob Wynkoop (113), Jaylen Roth (126), and Dakota Williams (220) had third-place finishes.
The Giants finished up their dual meet season last week, ending with a 15-6 record. Next week Ben Davis begins sectional action.
“No reason to ever change the way you’re training,” Moss said. “If something’s working for you, keep going at it. I really have nothing to change, just got to keep working hard.”
