CENTERBURG — The Centerburg wrestling team had plenty of expectations going into this season and, judging its progress in the early going, the expectations are well-founded.
Coming off Saturday’s big tournament win in Granville, the Trojans swept their home opening tri-match on Friday, defeating Grandview, 42-20, and knocking off Cardington, 51-18.
“We’re off to a really good start again this year,” said Centerburg coach Mark McCann. “Thanks to the former coaching staff and school support, we seem to do a little more and get a little more each year. We try to give back through winning and community service. We’re just blessed. It’s a good deal.”
Coming up big for the Trojans was 138-pound Austin Glasscock, who pinned both his opponents. He took down Grandview’s Ben Jump at 1:30 of the first period and Cardington’s Makenzie Coulter at 1:38 of the first.
William Thatcher (126 pounds) also had a big night for the Trojans, pinning Grandview freshman Benton Bair. He went on to pin Caleb Conant of Cardington. Both pins took place in the opening minute of the first period.
Reed Hensel, wrestling up for the Trojans at 160 pounds, pinned Sid Morrison at 1:14 of the second period and got a win by default at the 152-pound class against Cardington.
