BLANCHESTER — The Blanchester wrestling team split its matches Wednesday with Batavia and Fenwick.

The Wildcats defeated Fenwick 60-0 then lost to Batavia 37-24.

“Batavia had a game plan going in to this and executed it well,” BHS coach Ryan Shafer said. “We both moved wrestlers around to try to get the best matchups. We had met them earlier in the year and beat them; they got us the second time around.”

Shafer said the “competition is wha is getting us ready for the postseason.”

“Both times we have wrestled them (Batavia) this year, they have been tough matches for both teams,” he said.

There were just four weight classes contested in the BHS-Fenwick battle. Hunter Smith, Jacob Hamm, Gage Huston and Cody Kidd recorded pins for the Wildcats. Huston’s pin was in 18 seconds at 170 pounds.

Against the Bulldogs, the Wildcats had wins by Nick Musselman, Gage Berwanger, Adam Frump and Colt Conover.
