Lewis Cass grapplers remain unbeaten

Logan Super Six downsized to Super Three due to weather.

While most area athletic events were snowed out, Lewis Cass and Logansport’s wrestling teams were in action Saturday.

The Kings went 5-0 at the Rensselaer Super Six to improve to 11-0 on the season. They defeated Hebron (69-3), South Newton (58-13), Rensselaer (60-18), West Lafayette (38-36) and West Central (39-37).

Jarrett Carden (126 pound weight class), Zach Layer (132/138), Gabe Welch (152), Brendan McGehee (160) and Blaine Elliott (220) went 5-0 on the day for Cass. Drake Hall (113) went 4-1. Nathan Young (132/138), Kolbie Cox (145), Hunter Clark (170), John Hartley (182), Levi Glassburn (195) and Brock Reish (285) went 3-2. Hunter Carden (120) went 1-4.

“I was happy with the effort I saw from the team today,” Cass coach Nate Burrous said. “West Lafayette and West Central are both good teams and the kids really stepped up the intensity when we wrestled them.

“Welch, McGehee and Elliott are all 11-0 now.”

The Kings next compete at the Twin Lakes Invitational next Saturday.

Carroll 43, Caston 27

The Comets’ home game on Saturday night against Taylor was snowed out. On Friday night it was the Comets’ shooting that was cold in a loss at Carroll.

The Comets shot just 25 percent from the field in the loss and dropped to 2-2.

“We were just flat out cold,” Caston coach J.R. Howell said. “We got a lot of good looks and didn’t hit. We shot 4 of 23 from 3 which killed us. We shot just three free throws, Quentin [Douglass] went 1 of 3.”
