PREP WRESTLING: Chargers make it a sectional three-peat

ELKHART — The Elkhart Memorial Crimson Chargers built a lead in the early rounds and five wins in championship matches didn’t slow them down in a quest for a third straight IHSAA sectional championship.

The Chargers totaled 237 1/2 points Saturday at Memorial. Goshen was second at 200, followed by Elkhart Central 162 1/2, Northridge 158 1/2, Jimtown 146, Fairfield 118, NorthWood 112 and Concord 62.

“We told the guys going into the final round it was ours to win,” Memorial coach Jim Iannarelli said. “The kids wrestled exceptional. We got seven guys into the championship matches and are sending 12 to the regional. You can’t ask for much more.”

The top four finishers in each weight class advance to next Saturday’s regional at Goshen.

Iannarelli didn’t let the cancellation of the NLC tournament nor the recent terrible weather conditions bother his wrestlers.

“There were days when we didn’t know if we were going to be able to practice or not,” the coach said. “But I did everything I could to make sure we got as much practice time in that we could. One day I went and picked up three of the kids so they could practice.

“The guys were told this week was about getting to a better place. By that I mean getting to regional, then semistate and then the ultimate goal of state.”

Winning individual title for Memorial were junior Anthony Vaughn (20-5 record) at 126 pounds, sophomore Nate Ritchie (13-3) at 160, senior Jon Osoria (19-8) at 170, freshman David Eli (22-7) at 182 and senior Tieshawn Johnson (31-0) at 195.

Junior Tevis McDonald has the fastest fall in the third round (:14) at 285 pounds.

Goshen senior Scotty Huff (32-3) won the championship at 113. Senior Jaron Katzer (106), junior Joel Byler (132), senior John Trenshaw (170), senior Evan Smith (182), sophomore Derek Paz (220) and freshman Jose Montanez (285) finished second for the Redskins.

Northridge had two champions with senior Jon Yoder winning at 138 and classmate Ryan Baxter at 145.

Riding in his 10th Tour, three-time world champion Michael Rogers of Australia won his first Tour stage behind savvy racing, well-paced riding and the absence of his Tinkoff-Saxo Bank leader Alberto Contador. The Spaniard crashed out in Stage 10, inadvertently freeing up Rogers to go after the stage win.
