Kings motor to finish

Late run pushes Cass girls past Taylor


“We’re banged up right now. We had seven guys out of our lineup so we went into it kind of just focusing on individuals,” Kokomo coach Ryan Wells said. “We didn’t expect to do as well as we actually did team wise. We forfeited 106, 113 and 138 [weight classes] so we were giving up 18 points off the top. Considering that, I thought we did OK.”

The Kats had three individuals post 5-0 records — A.J. Nelson at the 120-pound weight class, Chad Gaddis at 152 and Fletcher Miller at 220 (3-0) and heavyweight (2-0).

Also for the Kats, Wyatt Lowe at 126, Szhantrayle Roberson at 132 and Daniel Culbertson at 220 and 285 all finished with 4-1 records.

Gaddis and Miller both pushed their season records to 19-0. Wells noted Gaddis had a big-time victory over Lowell’s Alex Mavros.

“Mavros is ranked seventh in the state right now. Chad is ranked fifth,” Wells said. “It was a close match, but Chad controlled it and really kind of proved himself to be a top-level 152-pounder in the state.”

Twin Lakes Invitational

Cass placed second in the invitational out of 16 teams. Gabe Welch (152) and Blaine Elliott (220) won their respective classes with perfect 4-0 records. Both Welch and Elliott each have 15-0 records.

Jarrett Carden (126) and Brendan McGehee (160) each had second-place finishes. Drake Hall (113) and Brock Reish (Heavyweight) had third-place finishes, and Kolbie Cox was fourth.

“Cass has been going to this meet for 20 years, and this is the highest we have ever placed,” Lewis Cass coach Nate Burrous said. “Welch has earned his 100th career victory.”

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
