JEFFERSONVILLE, Ind. -- Junior Luke Teague won an individual championship Saturday (Feb. 2), leading the Columbus North wrestling team to a fifth-place team finish in the Jeffersonville Regional.
The Bull Dogs totaled 94 points and qualified five wrestlers to the Evansville Semistate next Saturday (Feb. 9). Floyd Central won the regional with 173.5 points, 18.5 points better than runner-up Columbus East. Jennings County was third with 110 points followed by Jeffersonsville with 96.5 and Columbus North.
Teague went 3-0 in the 182-pound division, beating Jennings County's Dakota Bott 10-4 in the championship round to improve to 29-16 for the season. Earlier, Teague won his first-round match by forfeit and pinned Jeffersonville's Brandon Spangler in the semifinals.
That was the highlight for Columbus North, which also saw junior Evan Speaker place second at 106 pounds, senior Luis Cambron finish third at 195 pounds, sophomore Brandon Woods place third at 220 pounds and junior Andrew Jones finish fourth at 152 pounds.
The top four finishers in each division advance to the semistate.
Speaker (31-14) won his first two matches before falling to Floyd Central's Terrance Kennedy in the final. Cambron (27-19) and Woods (26-17) each captured his first match and dropped his second, then won respective third-place matches.
Jones (26-23) captured his first-round match with a 5-3 decision over Jeffersonville's Tyler Fridley to move into the final four of his division. He dropped his final two matches to place fourth.
In other divisions, junior Will Speaker (23-25) placed fifth at 113 pounds and senior Armando Cordova (18-11) was fifth at 170 pounds. Also, junior Cody Speaker and junior Jacob Lashley did not place at 120 and 138 pounds, respectively.
"We wrestled fairly well," CN coach Nick Skinner said. "A few guys made some minor mistakes, but overall we punched five through to the semistate tournament in Evansville. This will be much needed experience for the four who still have years left. It will be a great opportunity to continue the season for the lone senior."
The Evansville Semistate will be contested at the Ford Center. Action begins at 9 a.m. CST (10 a.m. EST).
