Boyle, Danville wrestling teams see results on the road
Boyle County and Danville wrestling teams hit the road over the weekend for wrestling tournaments in Lexington and Tennessee.
Danville took seven wrestlers to the Lafayette High School Five-Star Classic, and those seven wrestlers had good results, head coach Joey Sallee said.
“We have been battling illness all week, and decided to give some guys time to get well,” coach Sallee said. “I was really happy with how we went out and competed. Charley Blevins stepped into our 106 spot this week. She’s just an eighth grader. She didn’t win, but she went out and wrestled hard.”
Morgan Sallee placed third in his weight class and Pierce Haines placed sixth to lead the Admirals.
“Micah Chappell, Christian Poynter and Caleb Campbell got really tough draws,” coach Sallee said. “That’s just how it goes sometimes. Colby Stevenson continues to be impressive. He’s aggressive, goes hard, and does not like to lose. A little more time and experience, and he will be really solid for us.
“Sallee placed 3rd, and Haines 6th. Both wrestled well. We are learning. We will get back in the room on Monday and fix a few things. Then, we head to Bullitt Central on Wednesday and Western Hills on Thursday.”
Boyle County visited Tennessee over the weekend in the Beech Invitational in Hendersonville, Tennessee.
The Rebels were led by a 4-0 performance from Jordan Bates, who placed first in the 138-pound weight class. Head coach Seth Lucas said Bates pinned every wrestler he faced.
Logan Tuggle placed third in the 132-pound weight class, falling to the No. 3-ranked wrestler from Georgia, Lucas said.
Ben Rush (3-2 at 182 pounds) placed fourth, Clay Karsner (3-2, 145 pounds) placed in the top eight and Collin McGlone went 3-2 at 170 pounds to place top eight.
