Shelby State 6-Pack, Two 4ths, A 5th

A Shelby 6-pack qualified for the IHSA Individual State Wrestling Meet and when it ended three of them finished in the top 5 of their classes. Garrett Brachbill and Adam Hudson finished 4th in the state and Wyatt Fox finished 5th.

Brachbill (43-5) won his first two matches at 126 pounds, dominating Luke Roach (26-11) of Illini Bluffs, 16-1, to win a tech fall in the 2nd period (3:47). He followed that up with an 8-3 decision over Sage Friese (39-3) of Seneca. Brachbill then took a loss in the semifinal to Caleb Micho (40-3) of Rockford Lutheran, 5-0.

In the semifinal wrestleback, Brachbill beat Chance Teel (44-5) of Sherrard, 4-2. That put Brachbill in the 3rd place match against Andrew Wenger (34-11) of Dakota. Wenger got the win, 7-2, placing Brachbill 4th.

Hudson (42-3) won his first two matches at state at 152 pounds. He opened with a pin of Christian Kolb of PORTA in the 1st period (1:38). He then nipped Zach Tomac of Plano (40-9), 6-5. Hudson then was bested in the semifinal by Carver James of Dakota (39-1), 18-3 by a tech fall (5:44) as time was running low in the match. In Hudson's semifinal wrestleback, he shut out Tyler Dagen of Vandalia (37-14), 7-0.

As fate would have it, Hudson, a junior, would face nemesis Dylan Knisley (38-4), a senior from of Monticello, in the 3rd place match. The two have battled the last few years with Knisley eking out wins every time, until regionals when Hudson got the win. Knisley won at sectionals and here they were again. Knisley won their final meeting with a 7-2 decision, placing Hudson 4th in the state.

Fox (37-8) won his first two matches at state, as well. He opened at 138 pounds defeating Connor Waugh of Rockford Lutheran (34-10), 4-0. Fox then went into overtime against Ben Buchelt (35-3) of Lisle and won 4-2. Fox lost in the semifinals to Greg Krulas of (33-10) of Dakota on a late pin (5:51).
