State wrestling tournament begins with sectionals Saturday


Pendleton also returns Aaron Sikorski, Wes Robinson, Spencer McCool and Matt Boyll from last year’s team that advanced 11 to the regional. But injuries have stymied the success that Cloud and the team had envisioned for 2013-14. “I’m hoping we wrestle well Saturday, but it’s been frustrating with all of the injuries,” Cloud said of the Arabians, who went 10-11 on the year. “We had at least four out with injuries at each of the major meets including the Madison County tourney.”

Noblesville has been the strongest competition at the sectional, winning the team title four years in a row and 19 times in school history. The Millers won eight of the weight classes last year and return four of their sectional champions: Niko Barrantes, Derek Noon, Jacob Wormuth and Ben Elliott.

Both House and Short see Noblesville as the favorite and Cloud said he would be “shocked” if the Millers don’t win. The coaches also see host Hamilton Heights in the mix as well as their own squads. The remaining teams in Sectional 19 include Frankton, Lapel, Tipton, Tri-Central and Guerin Catholic.

Shenandoah will travel to Tri, Daleville goes to Delta and Madison-Grant will compete at Oak Hill.

Matches are set to start at each site at 9 a.m. and tickets are $6 at the door.
