Coach Logan Crum's Comments

Very good match for us as the only points that we gave up were to weights where we forfeited, so we did not lose an actual match all night. I was proud of the way that we wrestled to get pins last night. We now turn our attention to the Cumberland Tournament which is Saturday. It will be a great tournament for us to see competition that we have not seen so far this year. It is a 17 team tournament so if we can do well there as a team things look very good for our program going forward.

Coach Logan Crum's Comments:

A very good match for us as a team. We beat a very good Olney sqaud that is in 2A for wrestling in Illinois. The match started out by us bumping Dalton Farrar to 220 to wrestle a kid he has beat before. That in turn made Blake Kight jump from 220 to heavyweight to wrestle a kid that out weighed him by several pounds. I was really impressed with Blake in the way that he handled that situation and being a TEAM player. The matches at 152 and 160 were the deciding matches last night and I am very proud of the way Chris and Sebastain both wrestled to come away with pins. Up Next we travel to princeton saturday to wrestle all the big 8 teams except Jasper so it will be a good test to see where we are in terms of conference.

Coach Logan Crum's Comments:

A very good match for us as a team as we came out and took care of buisness to get the win. Dalton Farrar's match was probably the best of the night as he wrestled well to get the win against a good wrestler. Blake Kight wrestled his best match of the year but just came up a bit short. The night was overshadowed by one of our  wrestlers Orin Brohm hurting his shoulder during a JV match last night and is probably done for the year with a torn up shoulder. We travel to Olney tonight which will be a tough match for all our wrestlers as they have one of the better programs around here and they are a class above us in state competition as they are 2A and we are 1A.

With the game tied Brandon Fitzjerrells ended the game on a half court shot at the buzzer to give SWIC the win 99 to 96.

In the last five minutes of the game the Warriors got hot and behind the aggressive play of Tyressee Williford and the three points shooting of Jalen Newsome the Warriors would pull to within one on a basket by Anthony Christian 94 to 93. Then Javonte Hill an All American last year would step to the line and calmly hit two free throws for a three point lead.

He was the top scorer with 24 points and 7 of 12 from behind the arc. Javonte Perkins had 23 and Hill had 22. WVC had six players in double figures with Williford at 20 points, Marcus Garret had 14, and three players had 12 Austin Trice and 10 rebounds and off the bench Cam Gross and Jalen Newsom.
