Prep roundup, Nov. 27

Eastern grapplers beat Muncie South.

Jessie Sprinkles led the Comets (0-3) with 16 points and five rebounds. Abbie Elkins added nine points and five boards. Abby Oyler added five points and five rebounds. Kelsey Richards pulled down a team-high eight boards.

“They jumped on us early, and we did a better job of breaking the press [as the game went on], we just missed a lot of shots inside,” Eastern coach Justin Coomer said. “They are a very good team, tough to stop, but we kept battling. But, they made it difficult early.”

WRESTLING

Eastern 40, Muncie South 38

Five Eastern wrestlers recorded pins, scoring six points apiece, helping the Comets edge the Rebels.

Ty Swisher (106-pound weight class), Phoenix Brown (113), Taylor Arnold (145), Andrew Turner (160) and Evan Ellis (220) pinned their opponents. Also for the Comets, Chris Biddle (170) won by a major decision. Eastern also picked up a win by forfeit.

“It was a great win,” Eastern coach Bob Jarrett said. “Muncie South is a great team. In fact, they finished three spots ahead of us at the Tech tournament last Saturday. They were third. So, our kids came back and wrestled extremely well.”

Jarrett pointed to Brown’s win at 113 as a pleasant surprise and a key to the win. The Comet freshman is new to the sport. He did not wrestle in junior high.

“Phoenix Brown has never wrestled before and he stepped out on the mat and picked up a win for us with a pin,” Jarrett said, noting how big that played in the team score. “That was a great way for him to start his high school career.”
