The Knightstown Panthers had two 3rd place finishers at the 32 team Spartan Classic. The team placed 13 out of the 32 teams.
The first of these was 138lb Junior Nick Walsh. Walsh finished the first day with two pins, both in under 15 seconds to solidify his place in the second day of wrestling. Day two started with yet another pin to put him in the semifinals where he lost a close match. However, he wrestled back strong with two more wins, and two more pins to project himself to 3rd place with a 5-1 tournament record.
The second place winner was 195lb Junior Aiden Orcutt. Orcutt suffered a tough first round loss. However, that was his last and only defeat of the tournament. Orcutt won his next six matches to take the 3rd place mantel.
Other wrestlers also had success in the tournament including, 120lb junior Jared Richardson, 160lb sophomore Ben Newby, 170lb sophomore Mason Muncy, 182lb Sophomore Liam Orcutt who all made the top cut and advanced to the second day.
