WRams crowned WRegional Champs

The Wrestling Rams were not suppose to get past Monticello in the Shelbyville 1A Regional. But they did, 180 to 173.5, as the Rams made history by claiming the first wrestling regional championship in school history.

Shelbyville crowned five individual champions and advanced nine wrestlers to sectional. So did Monticello. Four Rams claimed 2nd place. Monticello only had two. Monty had two 3rd place finishers and Shelby none. Both teams had one 4th place finisher, each.

“We scored it before regional,” said Ram coach Greg Harkins. “If everyone finished where we though they would we’d still lose to Monticello by a point. Nobody got upset and we got bonus points where we could. The difference was the 152 pound match. If we could steal that match, we could win.”

Adam Hudson (State 4th-ranked) had been beaten by Dylan Knisley of Monticello (3rd-ranked) last year and this year. Hudson also was nursing an ankle injury the last week so the Rams gave up a forfeit at 152 at the conference tourney, rather than wrestle Knisley again and make the injury worse.

“Before their match each wrestler was assured of at least 10 points for 2nd place,” Harkins said. “Whoever won the match would get the extra four points.”

Knisley got the first take down of the match and Hudson quickly got a reverse. The score was 2-1 after the 1st period.

“Knisley had the option to start the 2nd period and chose the down position,” Harkins said. “Hudson was able to ride him out the 2nd period.”

The Rams had put in extra work on riding guys out. That left the score 2-1 Knisley heading into the final period. Hudson was in the down position.

“He executed an escape in the first 10 seconds to tie the score, 2-2,” Harkins said. Hudson had two near take downs on the edge of the circle, so we though it was only a matter of time before he got one. he got a take down in the last 20 seconds and went up 4-2.”
