BLANCHESTER — With Taylor and Little Miami visiting Clinton County, the Blanchester High School wrestling team posted a pair of wins in a tri-match Wednesday afternoon.

The Wildcats defeated the Panthers 45-27 and the Yellow Jackets 61-11.

“Our kids really fought hard,” BHS head coach Ryan Shafer said. “Our conditioning is getting there and some other wrestlers got some varsity action and did very well. Even in losses, we still wrestled tough.”

Carson Curless at 132 (1:31 and 2:00), Gage Berwanger at 152 (5:02 and 1:34), Adam Frump at 160 (3-0 and 1:08), Jacob Lanham at 195 (3:30 and 1:00) and Cody Kidd at 220 (0:54 and 4-3) also were 2-match winners.
