Taylor County High School opened its 2014, and second, varsity wrestling season by defeating Fort Knox and losing to Boyle County at home on Wednesday night.
“We came out of the gate firing on all cylinders,” said a happy head coach, Spencer Adams. “It was very exciting to see some of the new wrestlers coming out fearless and getting some vital wins for the rest of the team.
“I knew coming into these duals that they were going to come down to a couple guys. If those guys win, we win if they lose, we lose.
“During the Fort Knox dual those “swing” matches went in our favor, during the Boyle County dual we lost those swing matches.”
After building a comfortable, early lead, Taylor County saw Fort Knox take the advantage.
The Cardinals needed three late victories by Garrett Haggerty (126-pound class), Zach Richerson (145) and Cooper Hall, in the final match, to pull out the triumph.
“Overall, I am very happy with our wrestlers,” concluded Adams. “They came out and fought hard the whole six minutes and left it all out on the mat. I can work with that!”
The Cardinals had three undefeated wrestlers on the night — Richerson, Jonathan Sprowles (170-pound class), and Cole Parson (195).
Taylor County wrestled in a  meet at Central Hardin over the weekend.
