Nov. 18 Arsenal Tech (T) 9:00 am “There are no losers in wrestling, only winners and learners.”

We took nine wrestlers to the tournament this weekend that had never wrestled a varsity match. For some this was their first time competing in a wrestling match. We knew it was going to be a learning day but we were pleasantly surprised by how hard our guys competed.

Nine of our thirteen wrestlers won matches. First time match winners were: Harvey Barr - 106 pounds, Wilmer Corrales - 113, Taylor Duncan - 126, Jabian Shaffer - 132, Mitchell Wyrick - 160, Brayden Harris – 182, and Jakobe Sparger - 220.

Leading the way for the Wildkat grapplers were: Shaffer going 3-2, Zane Hall going 3-2 at 145 pounds, Austin Johnson going 3-2 at 152, and Harris going 3-1 at 182 pounds.

We are very proud of how hard these young men are working and competing.
GO KATS!!

Last night was a learning and experience night for the Wildkats. We faced a very solid and experienced Eastern squad, and their experience won the evening.

We are very proud of the fight and effort our wrestlers put in. We will be better, tougher wrestlers for the experience gained.

Winning for Kokomo was Austin Johnson at 152 pounds. Austin won a hard fought 11 - 7 decision.

Also winning for Kokomo was Braydon Harris at 182 pounds. Braydon received a forfeit from Eastern.
