EVANSVILLE—Cody Osborne placed fifth in the heavyweight division to lead Tell City to 14th place in Mater Dei’s 16-team wrestling tourney last weekend.
Osborne went 3-2, pinning Andrew Yazel of North Posey in his final match.
“Cody wrestled really well,” said Tell City Coach Neal Stahly. “Most of his matches were kind of back and forth.”
Spenser Beard placed sixth in the 170-pound weight class, going 3-3.
“That was a really tough weight class,” said Stahly. “The top two were both ranked in the state, and Spenser wrestled one of them.”
No other Marksman placed in the top six, but Mason Waninger and Elliott Brown each went 2-2.
Waninger lost a 1-0 decision in the consolation finals.
“We did quite a bit better than we did last year,” noted Stahly. “We only scored two points then and we scored 48 this year.”
Mater Dei won with 265.5 points.
Tell City will host Jasper next Thursday at 6 p.m.
