IL defeats Knights, Jackets

Indian Land went 2-1 in a Conference III-A quad wrestling match at Chesterfield High on Wednesday night.

The Warriors defeated Buford 60-18 and North Central 60-24, but fell to the host CHS Rams 50-15.

“Our match with Chesterfield was closer than the score indicates,” Indian Land coach Mike Kersey said. “We had two wrestlers who missed weight and that hasn’t happened to us.

“It hurts when our lineup isn’t at full strength,” Kersey said. “We haven’t wrestled our best and I’m hoping our wrestlers are saving their best for later in the season.”

In the win over Buford, IL bolted to a 30-0 lead and kept the upper hand for the 42-point win.

The Warriors will wrestle in the two-day Bearcat tournament at Rock Hill High School today and Saturday.

The 27th annual RHHS tourney has a 26-team field.

“The competition is going to be tough, but we feel that will only make us a better team this season,” Kersey said.

Indian Land High hosts the  Warriors Duals on Jan. 17.
