WRams conquer PORTA


Applegate earned six points for the Rams with two wins.

“At 106 pounds, Zack Stirrett was not expected to be in the championship match, but he got there,” Harkins said. Some of these guys were expected to maybe make it to the 5th-6th matches, but they got upsets.

Stirrett won by fall and decision for 9 points.

Coach Harkins was also impressed with the two Ram champs, Adam Hudson and Lucas Duckett.

“Luicas Duckett had a nail-biter in the final with a kid from Litchfield who was ranked 3rd in the state,” Harkins said. “But Duckett wrestled our way, ‘attack,’ attack,’ ‘attack.’ He rode him well. Hudson also wrestled a kid from Litchfield in the final. He wrestled him on opening night and won 1-0. We studied film and saw some things we could do and get him turned on his back. Hudson got a 1-0 lead, then got it to a 5-0 lead. He got a take down and it was 7-0, three weeks after he won 1-0.

“It is a credit to these kids how they have improved,” Harkins said. “After practice, when they are tired and hungry, they stay and watch film and put in the extra hours to put themselves on top.”

Shelbyville , ranked 6th in the state prior to the PORTA win, heads to the Cumberland Tourney this Saturday. One of the team goals, which the captains and the team have set is to win the Cumberland Tourney. They already earned another goal, a PORTA trophy, and 1st at that.
