WESTFIELD - The Crawfordsville wrestling team got back into action after Saturday's Sagamore Athletic Conference meet with a trip to Westfield on Thursday. The Shamrocks took 10-of-14 weight classes for a 54-18 win in the dual meet.
"I was pleased with the way the kids competed against a good team. We were ready and competed hard. Some of our young kids are still learning how to learn from their mistakes and not make them again," Crawfordsville head coach Chris Ervin said.
Three of Crawfordsville's four wins came from the team's seniors. Robert Manns bounced back after suffering his first loss of the season at the conference meet to pin his man Thursday. AC Rudolph saw his first action since the Montgomery County meet and also picked up a pin.
"It was good to see AC Rudolph get a chance to get on the matt and get a win. He has been really slowed down with a knee injury that he reinjured at county," Ervin said. "Robert's motivated and working hard."
Another senior, Nathan Bean, got a last-second takedown to earn at 3-1 decision over a quality heavyweight from Westfield.
Skylar Crum was the other Athenian to win. He decisioned his man at 120 pounds.
The Athenians (11-10) will wrestle at the Cardinal Ritter Super Six on Saturday as a final tune up before the sectional on Jan. 31 at CHS.

They're good top to bottom," North Montgomery head coach Maurice Swain said. "I knew coming in that the first two rounds were big. And we wrestled well in those rounds. But if you don't win many matches in the final round it's hard to win the tournament.
