The Lewis Cass Kings wrestling team conquered the Twin Lakes Sectional last weekend. The team ended with 221 points followed by Logansport (168) and Rensselaer (148). With this title, the wrestling program upholds two of the last three titles over the course of Lewis Cass history. 

The Kings already broke a few records for the season, and with this win, the team broke another. The Kings will advance 13 of the 14 wrestlers to the Logansport Regional tournament on Feb. 4. 

“They work so hard, they deserve this,” said coach Nate Burrous. “We’ve got 13 through to regionals which is a record for us. We’ve never had more than 10 before. So now we’re going to go back next week and get ready and hopefully we get a bunch of them to semi-state.” 

Cade Cox, a sophomore, earned the sectional title for the 126-pound weight class. He defeated senior Jesse Dominguez from Logansport, who he previously lost to, with a decision 7-3.

“It was a tough match,” said Cox. “He had a good dump. I worked on stopping it so the game plan was to try to stop his shot.”

With the win, the sophomore continued with 33-5 for the season thus far. 

The Kings also advanced seniors Cole Carden (170-pounds), Tristan Keller (195), Hunter Carden (145), Drake Hall (152) and Connor Jones (220). Also, juniors Noah Miller (106) and Aaron Willison (285). Sophomores Blake Jones (138), Dalton Bandelier (182), and Jordan Raderstorf (120) will continue. Finally, freshmen Samuel Miller (113) and Cael Bernhardt (132) advance. 

The boys’ basketball team faces Winamac on Feb. 2 at Cass. Also, the Kings travel to Clinton Central on Feb. 4 with tipoff at 11 a.m. The Kings plan on avenging their record after a tough loss to Kokomo last weekend.

The Queenfish compete this weekend at the Warsaw Sectional meet. Prelims begin on Feb. 2 with the finals on Feb. 4.
