David Teague, a senior competing in the 132-pound weight class, was Tell City’s best wrestler this season.
He was the only one to qualify for the regional and semistate and had compiled a 23-8 record before Saturday’s semistate.
Meanwhile Tell City had to have freshmen fill the 220- and 285-pound weight classes, which are generally dominated by seniors, and had no one to put in the 195-pound class.
So maybe the Marksmen should have moved Teague up to one of those weight classes.
