Smith goes unbeaten at 113 pounds in East Central Invitational wrestling

                ST. LEON, Ind. – Senior Morgan Smith went 5-0 at 113 pounds Saturday (Dec. 15) in the East Central Invitational, but Columbus North finished 0-5 as a team in the six-school wrestling competition.

                Smith posted two pins, one technical fall, one decision and one win by forfeit to improve to 13-4 for the season as an individual at 113 pounds. Smith opened with a 20-3 technical fall against Rushville’s Dylan Galusha. He then won by forfeit against Lawrenceburg and followed with a pin of Batesville’s Alex Murphy at 2:20. Smith pinned a Cambridge City Lincoln opponent at 0:59 in Round 4. He claimed a 12-6 decision over East Central’s Tyler Schneider to complete his day.

                “Morgan has put in a lot of hard work, and it is showing,” Bull Dogs coach Matt Joyce said. “He is adjusting well to the 113-pound weight class. He wrestled tough all day.”

                As a team, the Bull Dogs lost to Rushville (36-35), Lawrenceburg (74-6), Batesville (54-18), Cambridge City Lincoln (36-28) and host East Central (68-3).

                Lawrenceburg went 5-0 as a team to win the event and improve to 18-0 in dual matches this season.

                Other CN individual results included freshman Dylan Chavez going 2-3 at 120 pounds, freshman Bryce Abner finishing 2-3 at 138 pounds, freshman Jared Slocum going 2-3 at 152 pounds and junior Adam Behling posting a 2-3 mark at 220 pounds. These were Behling’s first matches of the season.

                Also, sophomore Matthew Ellis went 1-2 at 160 pounds, sophomore Ashton Clark was 1-4 at 126 pounds and freshman Hector De Dios went 1-4 at 170 pounds.

                Completing the Bull Dogs’ lineup were sophomore D’metri Bailey, 0-2 at 160 pounds; freshman Luis Cordova, 0-5 at 132 pounds; and freshman Connor Essick, 0-5 at 145 pounds.

                Columbus North did not field entries at 106 pounds, 182 pounds, 195 pounds or 285 pounds.

                The Bull Dogs return to action at 7 p.m. Wednesday (Dec. 19) when they host Madison in the Bill Stearman Athletic Complex. CN follows by taking part in the Avon Invitational at 9 a.m. Saturday (Dec. 22). Opponents in that event will be Perry Meridian, Avon, Scecina, Eastern Hancock and Fishers.
