Middle School wrestlers fall in match


Last Thursday night the Switzerland County Middle School wrestling team put up a courageous effort against a fully-loaded Greensburg Pirates squad.

In head to head competition the Pacers hung in with their opponents until the end, losing 30-24.

The Pirates then added eight forfeits to the match, making the actual final score 72-24.

“These kids are getting better and better each week and are starting to believe in themselves even though we usually give up a lot of height and experience to other squads,” Coach Mark Jackson said.

Winners on the night were Tearra Steele and Christian Wilson - each going 2-0.

Cole Riley and Cody Wallace each went 1-0; while Gabe Jackson, Dathan Brown, and Colby Boatman each went 1-1.

As the season winds down, the Pacers will participate in the Bear Rumble this Saturday; and the conference meet next weekend in Paoli.
