Last Thursday (Jan. 3), the Panther wrestlers traveled east to face the host Titans for a dual meet against their TEC opponents. Knightstown recorded a decisive victory despite injuries and sickness, forcing the Panthers to forfeit three weight classes.

Wrestling started at 182 lbs. with sophomore Liam Orcutt picking up a win. Aiden Orcutt, a 195 lb. junior, followed with a pin. The team also picked up wins with 113 lb. junior Kalen Carter, 120 lb. junior Jared Richardson, 126 lb. freshman Luke Thomas, 132 lb. junior Justin Lane, 138 lb. junior Nick Walsh, 152 lb. junior Landon Carmichael, 160 lb. sophomore Ben Newby, and ending with 170 lb. sophomore Muncy pinning his opponent in seven seconds.

Knightstown wrestling Head Coach Robbie Hadley was happy to see his team put on a dominating performance.

“It is always great when you get most of your team to win their meet and mostly by pin or technical fall,” Hadley said. “We performed better than when we faced them earlier this season and allowed 21 points.”

The Panthers held their last home meet of the season Tuesday evening against Eastern Hancock.
