Southridge’s Tucker Schank had a tough battle with Fort Wayne Luers’ Chandler Woenker at the first round of the IHSAA State Wrestling Finals at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Friday and unfortunately saw his junior season come to an end.
Jasper, Southridge and Heritage Hills will all have wrestlers competing at this Saturday’s wrestling semistate at the Ford Center in Evansville with a chance to compete at the state finals in Indianapolis.
Jasper, Southridge and Heritage Hills were represented well at their respective regional wrestling tournaments in Bloomington and Evansville and all three schools will be sending wrestlers to the Ford Center next Saturday to compete at semistate.
Schools across southern Indiana broke out the headgear and singlets this past Saturday, as scores of wrestlers gathered at Huntingburg Memorial Gym to push, grab, and slam each other on the mats for the right to call themselves sectional champions.
Some say, “Slow and steady wins the race.” Others say to start fast and leave no doubts. On Tuesday night, the girls basketball teams of Forest Park and Heritage Hills both reached victory lane but in different fashion.
