High school wrestling
Indians go 2-3 in duals; Grove wins five matches
VINCENNES - A year away from wrestling was worth the wait for Lawrenceville High School senior Thomas Grove.

After missing last season due to a football injury suffered during the fall of 2011, Grove made an impressive return to the mat Saturday, winning five times for the Indians at the Vincennes Lincoln Quadrangular at Alice Arena.

Taking part at 152 pounds, Grove was one of a host of LHS wrestlers to start the season out in a winning fashion.

"Overall we performed a lot better than we have at this tournament the last few years," LHS coach Tom Tewell said, after his team was victorious in two of five dual meets. "We wrestled a lot better overall, from start to finish. I'm really proud of the output from the boys."

Officially, the Indians placed fifth in the eight-team field, behind champion Washington, Ind., Southridge, Ind., North Knox, Ind., South Vermillion, Ind. LHS placed ahead of host Lincoln, South Vermillion, Ind,, and Evansville Bosse, Ind.

The Indians started the day with a 36-30 loss to North Knox, before taking out the host Alices, 39-36 and concluding pool competition with a 57-12 thrashing of Bosse. LHS suffered losses to Indiana teams Washington (52-24) and Southridge (42-31) in crossover meets against teams from the other bracket.

Grove was the only LHS grappler to win five times. He pinned three opponents on the day, accepted a forfeit and won once by decision. Senior Gage McIntosh, wrestling one class up from Grove at 160, was pinned in his opening match but fought back to score four wins, including two via pin. Junior Max Andersen, a junior at Red Hill, was 4-1 at 182 pounds with a pin to open the day.

Tyler Thompson, a freshman lightweight, accepted four forfeits for the Indians while losing in his only contested match. Thompson took part at both 106 and 113 pounds.

The Indians forfeited at both 120 and 126, and saw senior Zach Kocher and junior Hoa Bobe share time at 132. Kocher was 2-1 on the day, with both victories coming via pin. Bobe was 2-0, with a pin and a forfeit. Heavyweight Trevor Richards and 170-pounder Jacob Wirth both posted 3-2 marks. Both notched two pins among their three wins. Sophomore Tristan Davis, wrestling at 138, was also 3-2. Davis won twice by decision and accepted a forfeit.

Shawn Rogers, a move-in from New Jersey, was 1-4 with a pin while competing at both 195 and 220 pounds.

Other Indians to see action were Mitch Meek (0-4 at 195), Kenny Waller (1-2 with a pin at 145), Zane Green (a forfeit win at 145) and Ryan Seed (0-1 at 145).

"Last year we gave up 35 pins wrestling in this same meet. This year we didn't give up nearly that many," Tewell said. "We fought a lot harder, which makes me happy."

Tewell noted that the Indians' conditioning proved beneficial.

"Overall the conditioning is good," he said. "I think a couple of kids won today, just because of their condition. To me, that's the biggest battle. You have to be in good shape to win at wrestling, and we're in pretty good shape."

The Indians return to action Saturday when they'll host the multi-team Lawrence County Tournament.
