Middle School wrestlers wrap year


On Saturday the Switzerland County Middle School wrestling team traveled to Eastern Pekin to participate in the Southern Indiana Wrestling Conference (SIWC) championships.

It proved to be a good day for the Pacers, as Switzerland County had two podium placers – Ryan Hart and Cody Wallace.

Hart went 2-1 on the day, losing by pin fall in the second period to Southern Indiana Catholic. Wallace earned a sixth place finish going 3-3 on the day.

“These guys wrestled their hearts out today and should be very proud,” Coach Mark Jackson said. “Dathan Brown, Cole Riley and Tearra Steele all went 1-2 on the day, and Brendan Otter went 0-2.”

This was the middle school’s last meet of the year.

“Numbers-wise it will show we had a rough year, but heart wise we were undefeated,” Coach Jackson said. “You’re not gonna be able to compete team-wise when your a group of eight or nine taking on schools with 20 plus kids.”
