Gutierrez posts 5-0 record as Columbus North wrestling drops five matches in Bloomington Invitational

                BLOOMINGTON, Ind. – Senior Bradley Gutierrez went 5-0 at 285 pounds on Saturday (Dec. 1), highlighting the effort by the Columbus North wrestling team in the Bloomington Invitational at Bloomington North.

                Gutierrez posted two pins and three decisions in the Bull Dogs’ season-opening varsity event. Gutierrez pinned Lawrence North’s Steve Savage at the 5:41 mark of his first match. He claimed a fall over Martinsville’s Cole James at 0:48 of his last match. In between, Gutierrez notched a 4-1 decision over Bloomington South’s Conner Lucas, a 4-0 decision over Center Grove’s Musa Ogega and a 5-2 decision over Bloomington North’s Race Stewart.

                As a team, the Bull Dogs went 0-5. They dropped matches to Lawrence North 68-9, Bloomington South 70-9, Center Grove 72-9, Bloomington North 40-27 and Martinsville 48-28.

                “The scores don't show it, but our guys wrestled tough all day,” Columbus North coach Matt Joyce said. “With a few adjustments, a few of those duals start to go our way. I am excited about how our guys are responding even when things don't go our way or when things don't happen as they expected. They are controlling the things within their control with great attitudes and making progress every day.”

                Junior Nick Holt was CN’s only other wrestler with a winning mark, going 3-2 at 170 pounds. Holt pinned Center Grove’s Jordan Latham at 2:00, won by forfeit against Bloomington North and pinned Martinsville’s Lucas Martin at 0:33.

                Four Bull Dogs posted 2-3 records. They included senior Morgan Smith at 113 pounds, freshman Bryce Abner at 138 pounds, freshman Connor Essick at 145 pounds and sophomore Yadiel Reyes at 195 pounds.

                Other records for the day for CN wrestlers were freshman Dylan Chavez, 0-5 at 120 pounds; sophomore Ashton Clark, 0-5 at 126 pounds; sophomore Kamryn Denney, 0-5 at 132 pounds; senior Dallin Anderson, 0-1 at 152 pounds; freshman Sam Settle, 0-1 at 152 pounds; sophomore Matthew Ellis, 0-3 at 152 pounds; senior Jesus Palomino, 0-5 at 160 pounds; and freshman Hector De Dios, 0-5 at 182 pounds.

                The Bull Dogs had no entry at 106 pounds and 220 pounds.

                At the JV level, Ellis was 1-0; Settle, sophomore Keegan Hill and freshman Jared Slocum each went 1-1; freshman Carlos Rodriguez was 1-2; and sophomore D’metri Bailey went 0-2.

                Columbus North returns to action at 7 p.m. Wednesday (Dec. 5) when it hosts Edgewood in a dual meet. The Bull Dogs host the CN Invitational at 9 a.m. Saturday (Dec. 8).
