Tribe, Arabians lead locals in wrestling sectional

ARCADIA, Ind. — It was a long but successful day for local wrestlers in the Hamilton Heights sectional Saturday. Even though favorite Noblesville won the team championship and advanced the most wrestlers to next week’s regional, the six local teams combined to produce 27 regional qualifiers in the 14 weight classes.

Anderson finished second in team scoring and advanced five to the regional round. The Indians had three champions including Zach Amos in the 145-pound class, Bryant White at 195 and Rome Kayzer in the 220-pound bracket.

“We’re proud of everybody on the team,” Tribe coach Cary House said. “I’m really excited about our three champions and the other two guys (Anthony Fuller and Zach Saylor) that are moving on.”

Amos beat Isaac Ray of Hamilton Heights, White defeated Elwood’s Damion Sizelove and Kayzer used a little bit of strategy to pin Cole Leininger of Hamilton Heights. Leininger had defeated Kayzer twice in the past, but Saturday was different.

“I came in with my head up,” Kayzer said. “He had beaten me twice, and it was in my head. So I had to go as hard as I could.”

Pendleton Heights came home in third place and will advance the most wrestlers in the area to regional with seven. For Arabians coach Dave Cloud, it was a good day.

“It’s very good considering it’s just been a real hard year with injuries and illness,” Cloud said, citing that the team had at least five wrestlers out because of injury or illness. “We knew going in that Noblesville has an awfully strong team so we wanted to advance as many as we could.”

The Arabians had two champions, Tyler Flood at 113 and Spencer McCool at 170. McCool’s win over Sammy Mireles of Elwood was a little unorthodox, with the Pendleton Heights grappler suppressing his tendency to gamble.
