    The Marksmen always forfeit the two smallest weight classes and had to forfeit two others Tuesday because some wrestlers did not make weight.
    Then Jordy Fulks edged previously unbeaten Tell City freshman Shane Braunecker 13-11 in the 132-pound weight class after Braunecker led 11-8.

    Tell City Coach John Hayes and center Kammie Jo Hayes missed the game due to a medical emergency in their family.

    “What I think we were unprepared for was how physical they were on defense,” said Cannelton Coach Michael Snyder. “It’s hard to simulate that with your JV kids in practice, so that really hurt us.
    “I don’t know that we’ll run into a team that will be much better defensively than they are, especially for a Class A school.
