Red Devils produce 5-3 invitational mark
January 12, 2014Richmond High School
Alston Bane fell out of the Indiana Mat state wrestling rankings after a pair of losses in the Connersville Spartan Classic a few weeks ago.
The Richmond High School freshman had an opportunity to make a statement Saturday, and he did.
Bane defeated Franklin Central’s Jordan Vaughn 7-3 in Saturday’s Day 2 of the Charlie Hilton/Wayne County Invitationals, highlighting an individual 8-0 performance amid a 5-3 Richmond mark.
“He was ranked No. 7,” said Bane, who is now 26-3 on the season. “Last week I lost in the quarterfinals to a kid who wasn’t ranked and I had a loss earlier to a kid who was ranked No. 3 in the state at the time, and I fell out after that.
