Pirates compete at Ben Davis Invite
The Greensburg grapplers finished eighth out of 17 teams in the Ben Davis Varsity Invitational Saturday, Dec. 29.
“Overall, we wrestled well today,” said coach Cochran.
The Pirates’ lineup turned in solid results, according to Cochran, as 10 grapplers posted winning records and 13 tallied multiple wins.
Juniors Colten Black and Matt Scheumann went 4-1 on the day. Sophomore Nathan Hayes, junior Drew Neisius, senior Justin Dance, junior Joe Buening, freshman Dakota Deiwert, junior Joel Chase and freshmen Brandon Butz and Travis Gauck, all went 3-2.
Chaz Smiley, Jordan Smiley and John Cook each added two wins.
“I was pleased with our effort,” said Cochran. “We had a slow start, but we picked it up and wrestled really well the final three rounds of the tournament and finished a very respectable eighth place. It was very close to seventh, but we’re definitely getting better.”
