EVANSVILLE—Dylan Froehlich went 9-0 but only two other Tell City wrestlers had winning records as the Marksmen went 2-7 in Harrison’s 10-team round-robin tourney Friday and Saturday.

Tell City beat Forest Park 42-30 and South Spencer 42-36.

But the Marksmen lost to Union County 50-26, Southridge 52-21, Evansville Memorial 58-12, Heritage Hills 60-15, Trinity 42-27, Harrison 54-30, and Reitz 69-12.

“We just didn’t wrestle very well,” said Tell City Coach Joe Litherland.

“We had a couple other chances (for victories),” he added. “We were ahead of Trinity but we lost the last two matches.”

Froehlich pinned all nine of his opponents to win the outstanding wrestler award in the 215-pound weight class.

He actually pinned two heavyweight opponents, as Litherland moved him up a weight class against two teams that were going to forfeit in the 215 weight class.

Jessie Lawalin (112-pound class) and Ryan Henrickson (152) each went 5-4 with two pins to compile Tell City’s next best records.

Reitz, ranked eighth in the state, went 9-0 to win the tourney.

Heritage Hills was second at 8-1. Jeff Weiss, the Patriots’ 171-pounder and a member of the Tell City Wrestling Club, was named the outstanding wrestler of the entire tourney.
