Prairie Heights wins state duals meet

For the third straight year, the Prairie Heights wrestling team walked out of the Allen County Memorial Coliseum as champions of the IHSWCA state duals meet this past Saturday.

The Panthers secured their third consecutive 1A team title with a 39-32 victory over North Posey.

Trailing by as many as 23 points (26-3) early on, coach Brett Smith’s grapplers used pins by Blake Hoyer and Ryan Rasler, a major decision win by Zeke Rowdon and a 6-1 triumph by Zane Rowdon to pull within three (26-23). After a pin by North Posey’s Levi Miller bumped the margin back up to nine, a pin by Bennett Johnson, a technical fall by Jed Levitz and a pin by Coye Blodgett in the final three matches sealed the Panther victory and crown.

Prairie Heights breezed to a 57-19 triumph over Attica in its first match of the day, but had to rally to beat both Milan and Adams Central in its next two to earn a spot in the finals.

Milan took a 30-24 lead over the Panthers with just five bouts left. However, Hoyer forged a major decision and Zeke Rowdon pinned his foe in the next two tilts to put Heights on top, 34-30.

From there, a pin by Rasler, a decision by Zane Rowdon and a pin by Isiah Levitz sealed the Panther win.

In a tight semifinal match against Adams Central, Prairie Heights took a 34-28 lead on a pin by Bennett Johnson in the next-to-last contest. Jed Levitz then cemented the Panther result with a pin of his own.

Wawasee upended Garrett (37-33) to win the 2A state duals title. Brownsburg took home the 3A crown thanks to a 32-26 win over Perry Meridian.
