Pirate grapplers pin Bulldogs on Senior Night

Greensburg — Two winters ago, Greensburg senior Matt Scheumann and his wrestling teammates could only look on as the Pirate grapplers struggled through a 5-21 season.

For the past four years, Greensburg head coach Matt Cochran has been building a program not only to compete, but to sustain success and contend for championships.

Greensburg’s 62-15 win Tuesday over Batesville boosted the Pirates’ record to 11-3 as the team enters the season’s stretch run. Greensburg has won its first two dual meets against conference opponents.

“It’s great seeing your team come a long way,” said Scheumann. “from being a freshman seeing your team winning just two meets, to being a senior and expecting your team to win every meet. That’s quite an improvement over four years.”

Scheumann is just one of six Pirate seniors enjoying a resurgence of the Pirate wrestling program. Honored Tuesday night were Scheumann, Joel Chase, Joe Buening, Drew Neisius, Colten Black and Blake Wood.

“I’m proud of these seniors,” said Cochran. “The success they’re having is hard work they’ve put in over the years on the mats and in the practice room. I’ve really enjoyed watching them grow.”

Greensburg tallied eight pins over the Bulldogs, including two to open the meet and set the tone.

Greensburg next competes in the Tri High Superduals Saturday, with weigh-in set for 8 a.m.

A full story with complete results will be published in Thursday’s print edition of the Daily News.
