-A A +A
By Larry Goffinet

EVANSVILLE—Ryan Henrickson and Dillon Hedinger placed fifth in their weight classes as Tell City finished 10th in Mater Dei’s 16-team wrestling tourney last Wednesday and Thursday.
Tell City scored 41 points. Mater Dei won with 291.5 and Louisville Trinity, ranked No. 1 in Kentucky, placed second with 197.
Hedinger, who had a first-round bye, went 3-1 with one pin in the 171-pound weight class.
Henrickson went 3-2 in the 160 weight class.
His first loss was to eventual No. 2 finisher John Sims of Mater Dei. Sims was ranked No. 2 in the state in that weight class entering the tourney.
Henrickson later lost to a wrestler he had beaten earlier in the tourney.
Jessie Lawalin, Chance Young, Matt Sabelhaus and Cody Osborne each won one match in the tourney.
Young and Osborne each scored one pin.
“We didn’t wrestle very well,” said Tell City Coach Joe Litherland.
“It’s always a tough tourney,” he added. “But I like going down there because it gets you ready for sectionals and all the postseason tourneys (which have the same format).”
Tell City, 11-13 in dual meets will visit Jasper tonight at 5:30.
