Raiders ease to title

From Herald Staff Reports

Even the closest challenger to Southridge in the weekend’s Warrior Classic at Scottsburg didn’t stand much of a chance against the Raiders.

Southridge blasted through nine squads in the tournament to win the 10-team event for the Raiders’ third tournament title in four tries this season. Southridge’s closest test came in the championship against Fort Wayne Concordia; the Raiders steamed to a 42-24 decision in that match, and among their other eight dual-match wins was an 84-0 plastering of Providence.

Five Raiders finished the weekend with 9-0 records: Mitchell Mundy (145 pounds), Jacob Mundy (160), Andy Fischer (182), Alex Merkel (220) and Ethan Schwoeppe (heavyweight). Fischer and Schwoeppe both advanced their season records to a spotless 31-0.
