The Trojan grapplers started their season at West Lafayette Harrison’s War on the Wabash. The 10 teams we wrestled were Indianapolis Arlington, Goshen, South Bend St Joe, Harrison JV, Harrison, Lake Park (IL), LaPorte, McCutcheon, Prairie Heights, and Prairie Heights JV.
Going in we knew that it was going to be a long weekend, We were pleased to go 3-7 over the two days with wins over Indianapolis Arlington, South Bend St Joe, and Lake Park IL. With the holes, we have in our lineup, and this being our first time on the mat this season we knew we would make some mistakes, we did, and those cost us a couple of matches. With this experience under our belts, we are really looking forward to the rest season.
Kirk Bushong and Bryce Shepperd were both 9-1 over the two days, and Collin Fritz and Dakota Tiede were both 6-4. Picking up their first Varsity wins were, Cameron Neeley, Brett Czahor, Austin Keefover, Brayden Kletz, and Griffin McIlvain.
