Carmel tops Lebanon in wrestling opener

It wasn't a perfect start for the Lebanon wrestling team Wednesday evening when they traveled to Carmel for a dual meet. The Greyhounds won 10 of the 14 weight classes and topped the Tigers 53-24. "The kids competed hard and pretty well," Lebanon head coach Derek Bocock said. "We just made a few silly mistakes and got caught in bad positions. They fought and battled though and that was good to see." Of the 12 matches wrestled Wednesday (there were two forfeits), nine were decided by pinfall and one by technical decision. Bocock said early in the season lopsided matches can happen more than later in the season. "You get a lot of pins because they haven't been on the mat as much," Bocock said. "One side or the other can be caught with silly mistakes that gets them in bad positions. Being early in the season contributes to that and the more the kids are on the mat in matches you won't see some of those mistakes." The match started at the 195-pound weight class and Carmel won that match, and the next one at 220-pounds via first-round pins. Lebanon's Cody Bauer won by forfeit at 285 pounds, but Carmel won by pinfall at 106 pounds and technical fall at 113 to take a 23-6 lead. For more of this story, read Thursday's Lebanon Reporter.
