The boys wrestling team had a successful Sectional meet at Warren Central last Saturday. They will look to continue that success at the Regional meet tomorrow. Coach Irwin provided some information on his wrestlers and the outlook for the weekend.
The Regionals tomorrow are held at Perry Meridian High School. They will start at 9am in the main gym. The Hornets have 6 wrestlers competing for a chance to move on to the IHSAA Semi-State. Those wrestlers are; Kody Conaway (113), Ethan Smiley (132), Bailey Moore (138), Walter Ballinger (152), Nate Sanchez (160), and Isaiah Greene (220). All six have a very strong chance to punch their tickets onto next weekend and place in the top 4. Many of them have a chance to make the finals or even win their respective weight class! Ethan Smiley, ranked #5 in the state, looks to continue his undefeated season with a second consecutive Regional title! Bailey Moore, who is currently ranked top 20 in the state, is also favored to win a Regional Title! The others are not currently favored, but all have a strong chance to win it! That is why the we let the kids wrestle. It is all about who goes out and executes their game plan! We are looking forward to this weekend and the opportunity our athletes have to build on the Beech Grove Wrestling legacy! We want all 6 guys moving on to the Semi-State next weekend!
Head out to Perry Meridian tomorrow to support the Hornets’ wrestling team!
