Eagles edge Tigers on the mats

The Lebanon wrestling team gave Zionsville everything they could handle Tuesday night in their annual dual meet.

But in the end, the Eagles were just a little too tough. Zionsville topped Lebanon 35-30.

"They matched up really well with us, or we didn't match up with them very well, which ever way you want to look at it," Zionsville head coach Bob Brennan said. "But Lebanon always wrestles tough. They always want to wrestle us and they come in and battle. The scary part is they only have one senior and all their other kids are coming back."

Lebanon head coach Derek Bocock said the Tigers left some points on the board.

"I was happy with the effort," Bocock said. "I thought the kids wrestled hard. Obviously we have stuff to work on still and we will continue to get better. We were in some very, very good matches that were close. I thought we lost some matches that we should have won and a some of the matches we won I thought we should of had pins. Even one match is a difference. But we will use it as a learning experience and build off it."

Lebanon got off to a good start, with Kellen VanCamp defeating Austin Simpson 5-0 at 145 pounds and Evan Stambaugh pinning Jack Banks at 152 pounds for a 9-0 lead.

Brennan said it was Simpson's final match as an Eagle.

"Austin Simpson, not many people know this but tonight was his last match because he had torn the meniscus in his knee," Brennan said. "But he wanted to give it a go and I am proud of the way he fought. Austin wanted to wrestle Kellen because he wanted a meaningful final match. He wanted to wrestle someone tough. It was a good thing for him. I was proud of him. He battled, he was in the match and it was pretty brave."
