The Warsaw Wrestling team traveled to Goshen for a Northern Lakes Conference dual.
The majority of the individual matches were tightly contested, but the Tigers were defeated by a score of 22-50.
Winners on the night were Brock Hueber, Jose Martinez, Isaiah Owens, Jacob Bass, and Jose Grimmett.
In the first match of the night, Brock Hueber picked up a tough win at 195 pounds. A second period escape and takedown built a 3-0 lead going into the third. A late takedown in the match secured a 5-1 victory.
Warsaw’s next win came from Jose Martinez at 113. Martinez racked up four total takedowns and controlled the match as he cruised to an 8-3 win.
Isaiah Owens was aggressive early in his 126 pound victory. Owens scored an early takedown and nearfall before having to find his way out of trouble. A second period reversal was turned into a pin just before the period expired.
Jacob Bass grabbed 6 takedowns and multiple back points to win 21-7 in his 145 pound match. While Bass was dominant in the match, he couldn’t quite get a last turn or pin and settled for a major decision.
Warsaw’s final win came from Jose Grimmett at 152 pounds. Grimmett wore away at his opponent, picking up just a couple takedowns and nearfalls, but was able to put the match away late in the second period.
In JV action prior to the varsity dual, Warsaw picked up wins from Chris McAfoose, Josh Pelfrey, and Wyatt Klinger.
Warsaw’s record is now 12-8 and 3-3 in the NLC.
Warsaw will be represented by Haylee Brown at the IHSGW Girls’ State Finals on Friday.
The varsity will compete in the Garrett Invitational on Saturday, while the JV will be at Woodlan.
