PREP WRESTLING: Redskins make strides in NLC win over Warriors

GOSHEN — Jim Pickard got what he was looking for from his Goshen High School wrestling team Thursday night.

Not only did the Redskins notch a 57-15 Northern Lakes Conference win over Wawasee, but also they displayed some attributes the veteran coach had been looking for.

“All 13 of our wrestlers battled and just got after people,” said Pickard who last week picked up his 300th victory as GHS coach.

“You can’t teach heart and as I always tell the kids, if you battle, good things can happen. We became more aggressive at Memorial on Tuesday, but just lost to a better team. We carried over that attitude here.

“We are not a particularly young team, but we are inexperienced and have a long way to go.”

Winning by pin for the Redskins were junior Dante Wilcher at 120 pounds, junior Josh Bustos at 126, sophomore Victor Flores at 132, senior Travis Pickard at 152, junior Evan Smith at 170, junior Ramiro Hernandez at 182 and senior Hayden Schmucker at 285.

Earning victories on points were junior Scotty Huff at 106, freshman Christian Horton in overtime at 138 and junior John Trenshaw at 160. Senior Cyle Jaskolka won by forfeit at 145.

The most action-packed match of the night saw Wawasee senior Chad Eppley holding off Redskin seniokr Tyler Beasy for a 14-12 decision.

“I’m proud of Beasy for hanging in there,” said Pickard.

“He was down 10-1 and could have folded, but battled back and almost pulled it out.”

Also winning for the Warriors were senior Brian Clark by pin at 195 and freshman Tristan Ponsler by pin at 113.

The match started as 126 pounds with pins by Bustos and Flores giving the Redskins a quick 12-0 lead.

It was 42-0 before Clark broke the ice for Wawasee.

Goshen improved to 10-3 overall and 1-2 in the NLC.

Redskin JV winners were sophomore Joel Byler by pin in 1:30 and freshman Nathan Ellers by an 8-3 decision.
