The Charlestown wrestling team won four of its five dual meets in Thursday’s Nick Shaddy Invitational at Madison.

The Pirates defeated Lawrenceburg, Greensburg, North Oldham and Washington but lost to the host Cubs.

Two Charlestown wrestlers went 5-0 on the day: Brandon Balmer at 103 pounds and Eddie Duran at 125. Also for the Pirates, James Stotridge was 4-0 at 160, and Trenton Calloway (112), Jordan Stopher (119), Aaron May (130) and Justin Householder (135) each recorded 4-1 marks.

“We’re 15-2 and I’m most proud of that,” Charlestown coach Tom Kendrick said. “We could have beaten Madison. We rolled the dice a couple of places. A couple of them paid off and a couple of them didn’t. Individually all day long, we wrestled well.”

The Pirates will host Floyd Central Wednesday.

• Red Devils 6-4 at Scottsburg: Jeffersonville prevailed in six of its 10 dual meets in the Warrior Classic at Scottsburg.

The Red Devils’ victories came against Mitchell, Indianapolis Chatard, Greencastle, Ft. Wayne Concordia, Bedford North Lawrence and the host Warriors.

Jeff’s Evon Russell (119) and Thomas Bonner (189) each posted 9-1 records, while teammate Tyler Tatgenhorst went 8-1 at 152. The Devils’ Caleb Visser (112) and Jake Gibson (275) each were 8-2.

Jeff coach Danny Struck had to use six wrestlers with limited varsity experience because his team was battling an assortment of injuries and illnesses.

“It was frustrating in a way, but it got these kids some great experience,” Struck said. “Like I have said all year long, it really excites me about our future. We were happy to stay above .500 with the inexperience, but we also are looking for bigger things than that.”

The Red Devils will visit Salem next Thursday.

• Henryville rolls past Portland: Maggie Gilstrap’s great floor game helped the visiting Hornets win at Portland Christian, 50-19.

Gilstrap had nine points, seven assists and five steals. Teammates Amanda Cleveland, Kelcey Pierce and Katie Spellman each scored eight points.

Also for Henryville (5-7), Lauren Clark grabbed a team-high 13 rebounds, 11 off the offensive glass, and Whitney Graf had five boards and two assists.

With the score tied at four after the first quarter, the Hornets proceeded to outscore Portland 46-15 the rest of the way.

“It was just a very, very slow start. We just didn’t have our heads in the game to where we were concentrating and hitting shots and playing good basketball,” Henryville coach Brian Guernsey said. “Midway through the third quarter, we started putting a lot of pressure on them and just kind of pulled away.”

The Hornets will visit Crothersville Tuesday.
