Panthers top Owls

The Seymour wrestling team had a close rivalry match at Jennings County on Thursday night. The Panthers were able to edge out the Owls 38-27.

Both teams won seven matches, but Seymour only got bonus points in two and JC got bonus points in every match they won.

“I told the kids it was going to be one of those bonus point matches and sure enough it was,” head coach Dan Rasey said. “Just too bad we could not get them and they did.”

Charlie Bruce (106), AnnMarie Shuler (113), Dane Botkin (120), Ricky Bogard (126), Nic Frady (145), Logan Cunningham (182) and Brenden Bridgewater (220) all scored victory for the Owls.

It was an exciting match between the two schools. Seymour will be back at Jennings County next Saturday for sectionals.

“Overall we wrestled quite well and just need to clean up some defensive things to get ready for next week,” Rasey said.
