The Eisenhower wrestlers took the long bus ride to North East last night to take on the Grapepickers. The ride home was a little easier as they came away with a 48-27 win.

The Knights wrestled well, as Aaden Nichols at 152 pounds, Cole Kellogg at 160, Tucker Lindell at 172, JJ Darr at 285 and Rever Caudill at 107 claimed victories.

Also earning wins were Nakita Nelson by forfeit at 139, Bryceton Wilkins at 189 and Corey Bunce at 215.

“I thought Rever and JJ wrestled excellent technical matches,” stated Eisenhower head coach Jared Lindell. “Cole Kellogg had a tough match, but pulled it out, Aaden Nichols started us out on the upper weights and Tucker pinned his guy. It was a great team win as we wind down the regular season.”
