East vs. Cathedral Wrestling

As the regular season wrestling comes to an end, wrestlers had senior night on Jan 4, 2023. The match was against Cathedral and though East did not win, the night was one to remember. Talon Jessup, Liam Krueger, Jackson Fox, Tommy Morrill and Patrick McMahon all came out on top. 

The night started off with the junior varsity players wrestling, then the senior ceremony. Each player was announced along with who was escorting them, their plans for the future and their accomplishments throughout their high school career both academically and athletically. 

After the senior ceremony, the varsity matches began. The matches started off rough with Cathedral winning most of them, the Olympians pulled through and started winning matches. Those that lost did an excellent job, putting in lots of hard work but Cathedral has always been very hard competition. 

After that night, five of the Olympian wrestlers are ranked on Indianamat for the top 20 wrestlers in the state. Talon Jessup is ranked 18 in the 106 weight class, Liam Krueger is ranked 11 in the 126 weight class, Jackson Fox is ranked 13 in the 195 weight class, Tommy Morrill is ranked 3 in the 220 weight class and Patrick McMahon is 17 in the 285 weight class. 

The final score was 19-40 with Cathedral winning but the wrestlers tried their hardest and made East proud.
