Archer hits target in final year
Wednesday, March 04, 2015 6:20 PM
LINDEN - North Montgomery's Jesse Archer has been named The Montgomery County Wrestler of the Year for 2015. The 160-lb senior earned a 40-3 record throughout the 2014-2015 season, having never lost to a conference or county foe.
After defeating Eastern Hancock counterpart Jarred Waterman and Franklin Central's Dezman Goddard at the North Montgomery Regional on Feb. 14, Archer traveled to Banker's Life Fieldhouse a week later where he lost his opening match to Crown Point's eventual state-runner up, Darden Schurg.
Archer said the highlight of his season "definitely" came after he won his second semi-state match. The victory over Goddard advanced him to the state finals in Indianapolis.

"We didn't have that 'bad round' that has been typical of us this year, so I am really pleased that we finished with great effort and consistency.

It all came down to head-to-head matchups Saturday at the Sagamore Athletic Conference wrestling meet. North Montgomery held a slim lead over Lebanon going into the final placement round of the tournament. The teams met six times in the final round and Lebanon won five of those matches to pick up a win with 228 team points. The Chargers finished second with 212 points. Southmont was third at 200.5. Crawfordsville finished sixth with a team score of 122.
"Like I said in the paper, Lebanon's a juggernaut. They beat us five or six times in the final round. They're a tough team. 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.
