Stroud Headed To State Finals


Manchester Senior Dylan Stroud set the All time Wabash County Wins record as he moved to 145-12 with a 10-6 decision victory to claim his 2nd Semi-State title in 3 trips to the Finals.

Stroud passes the impressive 144-16 mark set by Casey Stouffer, who placed 3rd in State for Southwood High School. After pinning his first 2 opponents to claim his 3rd straight State appearance, Stroud wrestled a great match to knock off 10th ranked Landon Bertsch.

Junior Jordan Ayres wrestled well and was poised to punch his ticket before a controversial illegal slam call led his opponent to injury default his way to State. In his first match, Ayres came back to pin a Regional champion from Prairie Heights, and he was charging back in his ticket round match before he returned his opponent to the mat attempting to get a takedown for the lead. His opponent landed awkwardly leading to a one point penalty which gave him the victory when he could no longer compete.
