Grapplers down Blanchard in final home dual of the season

Guthrie claimed eight of the 12 matches Thursday evening against Blanchard to conclude the dual season.

With the dual tied at 28, the Jays won three of the last four matches to take down the Lions 46-31 on Homecoming night.

Each team was opened in one weight to equally divide the six team points.

Kaedin Herendeen got the Jays going at 106 with a pin as he led 10-1 at the time of the fall.

With Blanchard leading 16-12, Colby Wilder got a takedown 21 seconds into the match and eventually the fall 19 seconds later.

Senior sensation, who won his 100th career match earlier in the season, bumped up in weight at 150 to get the major decision 21-8. Leading 11-3 after two periods it was apparent Hall was not going to be able to get the pin and went for a technical fall but came up just short.

Gabe Sanders gave the Jays a 28-22 dual lead with a pin after leading 14-6.

Tyler Gettings gave Guthrie the lead for good with a quick pin (:39).

Wesley Silvis followed that with a pin of his own with 52 seconds left in the first period.

Nic Herendeen finished the night with a 30-second pin to send the home crowd to a roaring ovation.

Jays fall short of Dual State

Head Coach Jadon Davenport said his team was capable of winning the dual regional, but admitted if his squad did not wrestle well they could fall short.

The Jays had no issue with McGuinness (78-6) and John Marshall (80-4), but were unable to overcome Piedmont on their home floor. The Wildcats advanced to state with a 47-30 win.

The loss for Guthrie stops a two-year stint of qualifying for Dual State.
