WRESTLING: Wolfpack wrestlers win region; middle schoolers shine at state

RICHMOND — The Madison County Wolfpack youth wrestling club won the Region 4 championship Sunday at Madison Central High School.

The local wrestlers, ranging in age from 4 to 12, competed against wrestlers from nine counties, including Woodford, Anderson, Harrison and Franklin counties.

The wrestlers are now preparing to compete in the Kentucky State Wrestling Tournament, which begins at 9 a.m. Sunday at the Alltech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park.

In 2013, the Wolfpack returned from the state tournament with 16 wrestlers making to the championship podiums.

The Wolfpack Youth Wrestling Club is in its sixth year and the number of wrestlers has continued to grow each year as has the number of participating coaches. The coaches are pleased with the club’s progress and are hopeful that the Wolfpack’s success will lead to the development of many middle and high school champions in Madison County in the years to come.

Middle school state results

Madison Middle seventh-grader Gentry Deck finished runner-up in the middle school state wrestling championships, which were held last weekend.

Deck advanced in the 86-pound bracket by defeating opponents from Christian County, Walton Verona Middle and Martin County. He lost to an opponent from Woodford County in the finals.

Caudil Middle School eighth-grader Ryan McManus placed fifth in the 121-pound weight class.

McManus fell to the eventual champion from Meade County in the first round.

But, he was able to wrestle his way back to place fifth by defeating opponents from Campbell, Johnson, Trigg and Kenton counties.

Madison Middle sixth-grader Thomas Deck placed sixth in the 70-pound division by defeating opponents from Campbell County and Fern Creek.
