Logan wrestlers off to good start at Early Bird

Cass girls top Eastern to win MIC opener.

Logansport’s wrestling team is looking to have a bounce-back season.

The Berries got off to a good start on Saturday, going 4-0 at their annual Early Bird Tournament.

The Berries’ B team even had a good showing, going 2-2 against varsity competition.

“We think we’re better than we were last year,” Logan coach Frank Patacsil said. “We’re just trying to work right now and get ourselves in the position to compete throughout the season.”

The LHS varsity scored wins over Northwestern (60-9), Crawfordsville (45-30), Maconaquah (48-27) and Crispus Attucks (72-4).

Justin Porter (113 pound weight class), Jesse Dominguez (120), Ryan Schrock (138), Gerald Silva (145) and James Aho (171) each went 4-0 on the day for Logansport. Josh Brandt (126) and Sheldon Corcoran (126) each went 2-0.

Brandt was a semistate qualifier a year ago and Corcoran was a state finalist two years ago as a sophomore but missed last season. Patacsil expects Corcoran to wrestle at 120 this year.

Also for the Berries, Anthony Torres (106), John Ward (182) and Braxton Young (285) each went 3-1. Kane Henn (132) went 2-1. Kevin Gonzalez (152), Sandis Carter (160) and Mike Alvarez (195) went 2-2. Daniel Dominguez went 1-1.

For the B team, Paxton Thomas (138) went 3-0 and Donovan Johnson (113) and Jose Salas (132) went 2-0.

“We’ve got a good nucleus of kids back,” Patacsil said. “We’ve got a lot of returning varsity wrestlers because we were so thin last year, everyone seemed to have a shot.

“It is still our team goal to win our conference, win the sectional. We’ve got a ton of work, whether our kids are willing to work hard enough, that is yet to be seen. But that’s our mindset. I know Twin Lakes has pretty much everyone back. Lewis Cass has a really good team. They’ve worked hard to get there, and we just need to close the gap and you never know what happens. Once we get to that end of the season if we hit it just right, I’ve still got to believe we’ve got a shot.”
