The Woodford County High School wrestling team opened its season at the North Posey Duals Saturday, Dec. 1 in Indiana. The trip was the first of three out of state trips for the Mat Jackets to find the best competition in preperation for post-season wrestling events. The Jackets hit the road missing four starters who are out with various injuries. The Mat Jackets went 2-2 on the day and placed third. WCHS junior Chase Yost and sophomore Dylan Preston were both undefeated and junior Triston Brooks and senior Wyatt Andreoni each had one loss at the meet.

The Jackets began the day with a hard fought win over Louisville Trinity, 36-33.

Woodford had another nail-biter in the second match against North Posey, losing 42-40. The Jackets fell to Mater Dei 63-6 in the third match of the day. Woodford won its second dual of the day, beating Althoff Catholic 36-28. “I think we did well today,” said WCHS Coach Rusty Parks. “It was a tough day physically and mentally but we overcame the obstacles and kept our heads held high. If you take away the points we forfeited to each team, I think we did extremely well. It was a great learning experience and was also humbling. We teach our kids that it is a marathon and not a sprint. We want to keep the goal of a state championship in our minds as we battle week to week.”

Woodford will compete in the Derby City Classic Saturday, Dec. 8 at Cabell High School then travel to Ona, West Virginia Dec. 15 for the Ernie Sparks Memorial tournament.
