  • Jasper edges Marksmen 34-30

    JASPER—Jasper won seven of 13 matches to edge Tell City 34-30 in wrestling Thursday.
    “Going into the meet, I thought we would be able to beat them by 10,” said Tell City Coach Neal Stahly. “A couple matches I had us winning didn’t come out that way.
    “The wins we had, though, were good ones. And we are back to full force as we got Will Kirtley back from an extended leg injury and Corey Braunecker back from a shoulder injury.”
    Thus the Marksmen filled 12 of the 14 weight classes.
