Wolverine wrestlers pin Mitchell, fall to East Henderson in tri-match

As Polk County prepares to leave the Western Highlands Conference, the Wolverine wrestling program is heading out on a high note.

Polk picked up another WHC victory on Tuesday, defeating Mitchell 60-24 during a home tri-match. East Henderson topped Polk 54-27 in a non-conference match in the Wolverines’ other outing of the evening.

Polk improved to 6-8 overall, 3-1 in WHC matches. The Wolverines received four forfeits against Mitchell, but also received pins from Saxton Tickle, Bryson Rickman, Satchel McCoy, Collier Foster, Bryson McCraw and Charlie Jackson.

Rickman and McCoy returned to the mat in the nightcap and also again earned wins by fall. Jacob Knighton added a victory by pin while Bryson McCraw earned a thrilling 8-7 win at 152 pounds, picking up a late point due to a technical violation that gave him the upper hand in an active match.

The Wolverines are slated to wrap up the first half of their conference schedule on Friday, traveling to Mountain Heritage. Polk is also scheduled to wrestle Bradford Academy in a non-conference match.
