Stars face tough field at Zionsville Invite

Zionsville — The Western Boone Stars wrestling team faced some of the top teams in the area Saturday at the Zionsville Invitational.

The Stars placed sixth in the event that featured two ranked teams, plus top sectional foes in Carmel and Zionsville.

“As far as teamwise, I don’t think we did a bad job,” Western Boone Kyler Kearby said. “Like always I thought there were a few matches that could have gone our way. But that happens, you win some you probably shouldn’t have won and then you lose some you probably shouldn’t have lost.”

Kearby said that with two sectional teams in the field, the tournament took on added importance.

“Both Carmel and Zionsville are in a sectional so for sectional seeding this is big for us because there are a lot of common opponents and a lot of head-to-head,” Kearby said. “Even though it is December it is a big tournament for us for down the road.”

The Stars had two finalists and one champion Saturday.

Austin McCloskey, ranked No. 1 at 160 pounds, stepped up a weight class and won the title at 170 pounds.
