Meet Recap

Back to back Sectional Champs! The Knights edged the Wildcats by the slimmest of margins, 0.5 points, for the championship. It came down to the final weight class matches of the day. The Knights hwt Sam Smith was tasked with pinning his opponent from East Central, and Union County needed to win the championship match against Franklin County. Everything came together for the Knights. Sam Smith pinned his opponent and Union County’s Clark Minges won in UTB to give the Knights the edge. The win was the first at home for Head Coach George Gardner. This is his seventh sectional title as South Dearborn’s head coach. Congratulations Coach Gardner!

South Dearborn will send eleven wrestlers on Saturday February 7, 2015 to compete at the Regionals in Richmond. The top four in each weight class will move on to the Semi State in New Castle on February 14, 2015. Please come out and support the Sectional Champs! Go Knights!
