"Today was a great day for Vermillion wrestling. One wrestler, Tanner Mart, went undefeated at the 125-pound weight class," said Vermillion varsity wrestling coach Casey O'Connor. "Due to open weight classes, we had to move several individuals around to work for our advantage today. Overall we became more aggressive as the day went on allowing up to pick up 11 varsity pins on the day.

"I certainly need to commend our seventh- and eighth- graders for their outstanding performance throughout the tournament," he added. "We were able to pick up our first dual win for the season and established a solid standard for ourselves to build off of for the upcoming weeks."
