2013-2014 awards were presented at the season ending awards banquet on Monday, March 17. Four major awards were given. The Most Valuable Wrestler award was presented to Senior Derek Ellinger. Junior Kaine Luginbill was awarded the Leadership award. This year two Most Improved awards were given and they went to a pair of Sophomores, Tucker Miller and Ryan Ashley. Thanks for a good year, wrestlers. We're already looking forward to next year.
IHSAA State FinalsThe Jets couldn't get past Friday night at State Finals, but they came very close. Kaine Luginbill hit a last second reversal to take the lead in the final seconds of his match, but it was ruled an escape after the buzzer blew, sending the match into overtime. He then lost the takedown in sudden victory to fall 10-8. Derek Ellinger gave up the initial takedown and wasn't able to recover against an opponent who was skilled at controlling his opponent from the top. Still, both wrestlers completed great seasons and, for Derek, a great career. He finished his high school career tied for second in career victories. Congratulations, guys. Kaine, next year under the lights! The top 10 team scores and the
