The Centerburg Trojans continued to dominate.

Centerburg won both duals at Wednesday’s quad wrestling meet at Danville High School. The Trojans defeated the host school, 37-21, before dispatching the East Knox Bulldogs, 57-0.

“Danville always wrestles solid,” said Centerburg assistant coach Paul Pack. “I think if they had a full squad, we’d be worried. I’m glad we came out on top.”

Reed Hensel and Chet Backiewicz each scored two pinfalls in Wednesday’s event. Hensel defeated Danville’s Kyle Hawk with a fall at the 2:33 mark, followed by a pin on East Knox’s Sully Howe at 1:29. Backiewicz pinned Kyle Mickley (2:46) and Cole Enderle (1:32).

James Eppich and Jared Pack also went 2-0 for Centerburg, with each earning a pinfall and a decision. Eppich beat Daniel Mickley, 11-3, before pinning Blake Moreland at the 2:40 mark. Pack defeated Kyle Boston, 7-0, before pinning Ramsey McCarthy at 1:33.

William Thatcher, Austin Glasscock and Matthew Strawser also earned victories in the dual against East Knox.

The Blue Devils earned three wins over the Trojans. Last year’s state placer Cade Mickley defeated Glasscock, 5-0. Conway Baldridge pinned Strawser in the third round, and Jamarcus Hershberger pinned Trevor LeMaster in 0:46.
