Norse Capture Bill Campbell Invite


The first annual Bill Campbell wrestling invite was held at Northfield Saturday.

Northfield won the county version of the invite. Wabash was second, Manchester third and Southwood fourth. The Norse then won the entire invite by defeating Union City. Wabash defeated Southern Wells.

The Northfield High School hosted the first wrestling invitation attributed to the Great Coach Bill Campbell. The Invitational was previously titled the Wabash County Invitational and hosted the three other county schools, Manchester, Southwood, and Wabash, as well as four other teams (Southern Wells, Union City, South Bend Clay, and Fort Wayne North Side). Northfield petitioned to create the Coach Bill Campbell Wrestling Invitational with the other county schools to create an event that would pay tribute to the legacy of Coach Campbell. Campbell coached Northfield Wrestling for 35 years and is its cornerstone. Northfield finished the tournament 5-0 on the day as a team, beating Wabash (42-39), Manchester (45-35), and Southwood (56-23). Northfield beat Union City (54-32) and Southern Wells (42-36). Individually, Northfield earned four County Champions: Sophomore Brayden Rice (126 lbs), Freshman Eli Gahl (132 lbs), Sophomore Tayten Barlow (138 lbs), and Senior Baden Turner (215 lbs) Individual Records for the day: 106 lbs: Kaedence Mitchell: 2-0 113 lbs: Jace Phillips: 4-1 120 lbs: Isaac Stakeman: 4-1 126 lbs: Brayden Rice: 5-0 132 lbs: Eli Gahl: 4-1 138 lbs: Tayten Barlow: 4-1 144 lbs: Corbin Goshert: 4-1 150 lbs: Jackson Mercer: 1-3 157 lbs: Layne Denton: 0-1 165 lbs: Luke Eviston: 2-3 175 lbs: Rylan Schultz: 1-3 190 lbs: Burton Black: 3-2 215 lbs: Cail Dunphy: 2-3 285 lbs: Baden Turner: 4-1 The Norsemen’s next meet against Maconaquah will be at Maconaquah on Thursday, December 7.
