Four Pendleton Heights wrestlers will get to compete in the IHSAA Wrestling Semi-State this coming Saturday at the New Castle Fieldhouse. Known largely for its basketball tradition, the largest high school gym in the world comes alive during the “ticket rounds” with intense wrestling action as well. The atmosphere at the New Castle Semi-State is a good test for those wrestlers who advance to the IHSAA State Finals at Bankers Life next Saturday.
Wrestling for the Arabians will be Jared Brown (132), Colin Gillespie (182), Justin Stephens (220), and Cade Campbell (285). Stephens is the lone Regional Champion of the group. The top four finishers in each weight class will advance to next Saturday’s state finals.
