Middle School ACAC

The Middle School Jets won the ACAC tournament for the second year in a row by holding off a hard charging Heritage squad.  This was probably the closest finish in the history of the Middle School ACAC tournament as AC won by a mere 2 points. Tucker Miller (90 pounds) and Karthon McCullough (145) won championships for the Jets.  You can see results of the championship and consolation matches here.

Individual State Finals

The season ended for the BAGUBAs Friday night at the state finals when Chantz Luginbill lost to eventual state champion Brian Harvey, 19-6.  Chantz showed the true spirit of a BAGUBA as he aggressively attacked Harvey, uninhibited by his #1 ranking in the state polls.  Eventually, Harvey's skill on his feet proved too much as he repeatedly won the scrambles for take downs.  Qualifying for state was still a well-earned reward for the dedication and extra work Chantz has put in the past two years.  Congratulations of a great season, Chantz.

Fort Wayne Snider Individual Semi-State

Chantz Luginbill was the only bright spot in a day of disappointments for the Jets.  Chantz pinned KC Corey of Snider in his first match and dominated Tommy Kendall of Elkhart Memorial to earn a trip to next week's state finals.  He then lost a close match in the semi-finals and ended with a fourth place finish.  The rest of the BAGUBAs didn't fair as well as it seemed like every close match went against them.  Five Adams Central wrestlers advanced to the second round and had opportunities to advance to state, but Ben Pfister and Derek Roe lost overtime matches while Cody Walburn lost a 1-point decision.  Derek Ellinger drew the eventual champion of his weight class in that round.  You can see the championship and consolation results along with other Adams Central match results and a list of the number of wrestlers advancing by team on this page.

Jay County Individual Regional

The Jets tied Bellmont for the most wrestlers advancing to next week's semi-state with eight.  Chantz Luginbill had the only championship for the BAGUBAs while Derek Roe and Ben Pfister finished second.  Andy Oliver, Cody Walburn, Derek Ellinger, and Zeke Schultz all finished third while Robby Shoaf placed fourth.  A list of the number of wrestlers advancing by team and the results from the championship and consolation rounds can be found here.

Jay County Individual Sectional

Adams Central had their best sectional in years by advancing 7 wrestlers to the championship round and advancing 11 to next weeks region, but in the end it wasn't quite enough as Bellmont eked out a 6 point win, 228 - 222.  Cody Walburn, Chantz Luginbill, and Ben Pfister won championships for the Jets while Andy Oliver, Derek Ellinger, Derek Roe, and Zeke Schultz placed second.  Zac Yoder, Luke Liter, Alex Bollenbacher, and Robby Shoaf also advanced to the regional by placing in the top 4.  You find the team scores and results from the championship and consolation rounds on this page.

Wrestling Jet Invitational (Super Dual)

This one wasn't for the feint of heart.  The Jets won their first four matches pretty easily, beating Bluffton 70-6, Southwood 64-12, FW Snider 49-24, and Brownsburg 57-15. Then, came their old nemesis, Bishop Dwenger.  AC gave up six pins and railed 36 to 24 with two matches to go.  Cody Walburn pinned his opponent in 1:07 to keep their hopes alive.  It came down to Derek Ellinger, who not only had to win, but pin his man for the Jets to have a chance.  The Dwenger wrestler stayed off his back and kept  the match close going into the last seconds, but Ellinger succeeded in flipping him to his back and pinning him with only six seconds left in the match.  That tied the score at 36 -36.  AC was awarded one team point for winning the tie breaker on the third criteria, most matches won, so the Jets won the match and the tournament.  The victory over Bluffton also secured the regular season ACAC championship for the BAGUBAs.  The individual results of each match can be found here.
