BLOOMINGTON — In a learning year with a roster devoid of seniors, the Sullivan High School wrestling team finished 11th out of 11 teams at the Bloomington North Sectional on Saturday.
Kenton Williams, Sullivan’s best chance for a sectional champ, wrestled for the first time this year at 220 pounds. He had been competing earlier at 285.
Williams won three of four matches, losing by fall to Matt McVey of West Vigo at the 3:01 mark.
He bounced back with two wins and finished third, earning a spot in Saturday’s Bloomington South Regional.
“You live by the sword, you die by the sword,” said Sullivan coach Roy Monroe. “Kenton likes to use that fireman’s carry all the time and we have tried to get him not to use it all the time.
“He did and got caught on his back by the West Vigo kid. But to his credit, he came back and won the two matches he had to win to get to the regional.”
Kyle Maxey, who competed at 126, was the only other SHS wrestler to place. He pinned Brandon Greene of Terre Haute to earn fifth place, one short of qualifying as the top four advance to regional. He will be an alternate.
“We were hoping to have at least four make it out to regional,” said Monroe. “But Dossan Lamb (106) had been sick all week. If he was at full strength, I believe he could have made regional.
“Kenton actually was sick this week too. We had one wrestler (Gavin Jenkins) who did not make weight. The kids battled all year and gave me everything they had, but in the end we could never overcome our inexperience.”
Monroe added that he is a competitor and hates to lose and it didn’t sit well with him about finishing last.
“Sometimes thing are just what they are,” he said. “We still have one still wrestling and will get back in the room and get ready for the regional.
“Our goal is to get to state and we will have a chance to do that.”
