Short-handed Hornets fall to the Oracles

The Rossville wrestling team lost 48-24 to the Delphi Oracles on Tuesday night in its first match since the Hornets competed in the Lafayette Jefferson invitational on Dec. 28.

Tied 24-24 after pins by Isaiah Kingery and Brice Lawrence and a pair of forfeits, the Hornets fell behind when their final four wrestlers lost by pin.

“We had a lot of JV guys who were filling in,” Rossville head coach Mike Fadness said. “It was good. I knew that we would have to bring our ‘A’ game. We had a guy ineligible at 220, our heavyweight is hurt, and our 195 had not been with us for three weeks, so this was his first action in probably four weeks. So, we were injured. We knew that coming into this one. We had a long holiday break, so you are going to look rusty.

“Isiah Kingery had a good one at 145,” he added. “Some of our guys who I asked to come up and wrestle (varsity) did some good stuff. Colt Ford had a tough match against their guy at 152, We have some work to do. We have only had a couple practices coming into this with the weather and everything.”

The Hornets travel to Straughn on Saturday for the Tri Super Duals beginning at 9 a.m.
