The Admirals beat Grant County 63-12, Whitley County 46-33 and McCreary Central 48-33, losing to Scott County 39-36.

Isaiah Scott and Pierce Haines both went 3-0, and Eric Bloh and Spencer Updike each finished 3-1. Bloh’s one loss came in what Danville coach Joey Sallee called “the match of the day,” a 5-4 overtime loss to McCreary’s Nathan Prosser.

“Everyone was cheering, and that’s what we like,” Sallee said of the match.

The Ads will be at Thomas Nelson on Tuesday before traveling to Montgomery County on Saturday for the last match of the regular season.

“It’s always nice to win at home,” Sallee said. “We’ve had some young guys really step up.”
