Jennings County defeats Columbus North 45-25 in wrestling
December 18, 2013Columbus North High School
NORTH VERNON, Ind. -- Senior triplets Evan, Cody and Will Speaker each won his respective match Tuesday evening (Dec. 17), but it was not enough as the Columbus North wrestling team lost 45-25 in a dual at Jennings County.
Evan Speaker and Cody Speaker posted respective pins at 113 and 120 pounds, while Will Speaker claimed a major decision at 126 pounds.
Sophomore Jessee Holt and senior Kenny King also recorded wins for the Bull Dogs (12-9). Holt won by decision at 132 pounds, while King pinned his opponent at 285 pounds.
Columbus North wrestled without senior regulars Andrew Jones, Mason Day and Luke Teague. Their replacements at 152, 160 and 182 pounds were unable to prevail.
Junior Brandon Woods had a chance to win at 220 pounds, but he dropped a 3-2 decision to Jennings County's Colton Castetter.
"Overall we wrestled tough," CN coach Nick Skinner said. "I thought Woods had an opportunity to win, but he is still a little slow to pull the trigger. We will work on that this week.
"The absence of Teague, Jones and Day obviously change the dual."
Columbus North returns to action next Friday (Dec. 27) when it competes in the first day of the two-day Spartan Invitational at Connersville. Action begins at 9 a.m. each day.
"Time to focus on Connersville," Skinner said. "We will be short there as well with several athletes traveling for the holidays."
