4 local wrestlers advance at state

(Continued)

“He just went out and did what he’s been doing all year, he was good on his feet and got multiple takedowns, did a really good job riding,” Wells said. “Hopefully, we can keep doing that [today].”

Miller takes a 54-1 record into a quarterfinal match against Harrison’s Seth Meyer.

At 182 pounds, Corey Hinkle controlled the action against Noblesville’s Ben Elliott. The Panther blanked Elliott in a 7-0 victory.

“We weren’t as crisp as I’d like to have been, he wrestled fine,” Western coach Chad Shepherd said. “We knew what to expect and we knew what we had to do.”

Corey Hinkle (44-3) wrestles Kankakee Valley’s Timothy Schoonveld today in the quarterfinals.

“I think he can go as far as he wants to go,” Shepherd said. “Getting this first one out of the way, I’m sure that was a relief, but we’ve got to keep pushing now.”

Loe had little trouble with West Central’s Parker Fritz at 145 pounds. Loe, an eighth-place finisher last year at 138 pounds, scored a 9-3 victory.

“He’s obviously an experienced operator,” Peru coach Andy Hobbs said of Loe. “We knew this opponent and the next one, they’re very similar, they’re big, physical kids. That kind of changes style up a little bit and you have to go at it a certain way. He had to work hard, but his finishes are really good. he was able to finish about half his shots and keep the guy busy.”

“That kid was real strong,” Loe said. “When I got in on a leg, I finished. He’s real good at blocking off and he was a pretty good match.”

A quarterfinal match with Fishers’ Jordan Lile awaits Loe (47-2), who feels more capable of working his way through the bracket this season than in his previous two trips to state.
