Frankfort junior Elijah Anthony wrestles Brownsburg freshman Brady Ison in the first round of the IHSAA State Finals.

In a year marred by virus restrictions and roadblocks, it was business as usual for 126-pound junior Elijah Anthony as he entered the IHSAA Wrestling State Finals on Friday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Unfortunately for the Frankfort Hot Dog, his third trip to the State Finals ended in the opening round when he lost to Brownsburg freshman Brady Ison, 3-2. Anthony led 2-1 late in the match, but Ison scored a takedown in the final 30 seconds, and Anthony’s answer was cut short by the final buzzer.
