UTICA — Utica head wrestling coach Tim Jordan insists his team has a long way to go.

The scoreboard indicated a sweep for his Redskins at Wednesday’s tri-meet with Danville and Licking County rival Johnstown, claiming a 72-7 victory over the former and a 64-15 win over the latter. Utica won a majority of the head-to-head matches in both duals, besting the Blue Devils, 4-2, and the Johnnies, 6-3.

Still, the Redskins weren’t at their peak — and Jordan wants to make sure they get there.

“Performance-wise, tonight, I’m kind of disappointed in some guys,” said Jordan. “We didn’t perform as well as we had in the past. We need to improve.”

Utica got a pair of wins from Austin Parmer on Wednesday. The 126-pounder pinned Danville’s Michael Miller 30 seconds into the second round of their match, then earned a pinfall over Johnstown’s Vince Walls in the first round.
