Alexandria’s wrestling team traveled to Hamilton Heights Saturday to participate in the IHSAA Sectional, and to see how many wrestlers they would be able to advance on to next week’s Regional action. As a team, Alexandria put up a very strong showing and they finished fourth out of eleven teams.
Individual results from the day were as follows: 106 LBS – Gabe Ryan (6th, 2-3), 113 LBS – Leyton Peavler (5th, 2-2), 120 LBS – Nathan Dulworth (0-1), 126LBS – Jarrett Semon (5th, 2-2), 132 LBS – Lincoln Kyle (1st, 4-0), 138 LBS – Luke Blanton (1st, 4-0), 145 – Nate Ryan (3rd, 4-1), 152 – Forfeit, 160 LBS – Forfeit, 170 LBS – Marcus Carter (0-2), 182 LBS – Colt Welsh (0-1), 195 LBS – Forfeit, 220 LBS – Forfeit and 285 LBS – Austin Neill (2nd, 2-1).
Alexandria’s looks to continue their big splash this weekend when they make their way into regional action. Leading the way for the Tigers will be Luke Blanton (42-0) and Lincoln Kyle (38-3). The two seniors have produced excellent and memorable seasons, and both will be contenders in their respective weight classes. Blanton (No. 2 in the State Rankings) is still undefeated on the season as he continues his quest for the first perfect season in Alexandria history.
Regionals will be held at Pendleton Heights High School on Feb. 2nd.
