WRESTLING: Madison County wrestlers take third place in Oldham County

RICHMOND — Last Saturday, Madison County Middle School wrestlers competed against some of the top-rated teams in the state at the Oldham County Super Duals.

Teams were pooled and wrestlers from each of the 15 weight classes faced off to test their skills.

Madison County faced Christian County in a tough battle and won eight out of its 11 matches for a 42-40 victory.

Madison County wrestlers sent shockwaves throughout the arena after stunning their second opponent, Oldham County, with a 66-18 victory. The team swept all 11 matches. The only points Oldham County earned were from forfeits at the upper weight classes.

The third test came when Madison County faced Fern Creek. Madison County continued its winning streak with individual wins in eight out of their 11 matches. The final score of the dual was 46-18.

Forfeiting four weight classes caught up with Madison County when it faced a full 15-man North Oldham team. Despite winning six of the 11 matches, Madison County came up short and went on to wrestle East Oldham County for third place.

Madison County was down 36-38 going into the last  match between top-ranked Gentry Deck (86 lbs) and state-finalist Chris Ballinger from East Oldham. After the first two periods Deck was up by two points going into the final 90 seconds. Gentry capitalized off his superb balance and takedown skills to hold off East Oldham’s aggressive attack in the final seconds of the match, maintaining an undefeated season, and helping Madison County pull ahead for a 39-38 victory.
