Madison Central wrestlers turned in winning performances Wednesday in Lexington at the Lafayette Classic.

Ryan Mosher, Andrew Jakubec and Tucker Fair all still have a shot at individual titles after advancing to the tournament’s championship quarterfinals.

The action resumes at 10 a.m. today.

Darrell Wooten, Storm Savage and Dustin Fugate all suffered losses on the first day of the event, but will compete today in the consolation bracket.

All of Madison Southern’s wrestlers were eliminated after the conclusion of the first day of competition.

Sophomore Derek Howard, wrestling in the 285-pound class, and sophomore Casey Dionne, in the 160-pound class, each went 1-2 in the tournament.

Howard and Dionne won their first matches by pins, then lost their next two matches by decision.

Justin Robinson, Jae Durham, Josh Mullins, Derek Meeks and Sam Kauer all went 0-2 in the tournament.

This is the first year Southern has fielded a wrestling team.

“The boys really looked good, they’re improving,” Southern coach Brian Bertrand said. “It was a rough tournament. There was some really good kids here. I think they knew what they did wrong and what they need to do to improve and that’s a plus.”

Southern next competes on Dec. 28 in a dual meet with Harrison County.
