Their competition didn’t end quite the way they hoped, the Oldham County wrestling team performed well nonetheless, grabbing a second place showing in a tough field at the Oldham Superduals.
After defeating Jeffersonville, Ind., 67-9, the Colonels dispatched Apollo 63-13, LaRue County 39-36 and perennial power Woodford County in the semifinals 36-27.
That earned them the right to take on Simon Kenton in the finals but the boys in blue ran out of steam, dropping 57-12 to the Pioneers.
“It was still a good day for our team,” coach Aaron Riordan said. “We had some freshman wrestling varsity that really wrestled ‘above grade level.’”
North Oldham also competed in the Superduals, finishing eighth.
The Mustangs started with a 38-31 victory over the Oldham County “C” team to pick up their first win in group play before knocking out 70-12. They fell 48-30 to Central Hardin to secure the group’s second-place seed.
North was defeated 52-21 by Franklin County in the first round of knockout stages to fall to the seventh-place match against LaRue County where they lost 45-26.
