Coed Varsity Wrestling · Red Devils place third in the Jeff Classic


Senior Kameron Fuller shakes the hand of his opponent, Zane Beineke of Jennings County, prior to their championship match in the 170-pound division.

In a tournament that pit Jeffersonville against 18 other Indiana and Kentucky area high schools, the Red Devils were able to walk away with an overall third place finish in during Saturday’s Jeff Classic. JHS finished the afternoon event with 163 total points. Oldham County (KY) won the event with 192 total points.

At the end of the first round, Jeffersonville led the event with 35 points, three points over second place Oldham County and New Albany. However a rough second round saw the Red Devils fall to fourth overall, trailing Bloomington South, Oldham County and Jennings County, respectively.

But the Red Devils would rebound in the third round. Heading into the Finals, Jeffersonville (146) trailed just Oldham County (174) and Bloomington South (166). That finishing order would later prove true for the final results.

“I was happy but not satisfied with our performance,” Jeffersonville coach Danny Struck told The Evening News and Tribune. “We wrestled with more grit.”

Senior Kam Fuller was the lone Red Devil to win their weight class, taking home first place honors in the 170-pound division. Carlos Santos (132) and Luke Smith (182) would finish in second place in the divisions, respectively, while Josiah Freeman (160) finished in third place.

“Rising to the occasion, not worrying about others’ records and just being the best version we can be is something we talk about,” Struck told the newspaper. “Sometimes we don’t get first, or whatever [result] we want, and if we don’t get what we want, we regroup and go get the next-best thing.”

The wrestling team will be back in action on Wednesday, Dec. 20 when the team travels to take on Trinity (KY). The match will begin at 6 p.m.
