Johnson County wrestlers put on another impressive show during Friday’s opening round of the IHSAA Wrestling State Finals at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
Eight of 10 wrestlers from the county advanced to today’s quarterfinals. Center Grove, Franklin, Greenwood and Indian Creek will have a wrestler place somewhere.
Franklin led the way with all five state qualifers moving on. Juniors D.J. Smith (106 pounds), Skyler Lykins (132) and Conner Tolley (220), and seniors Luke Kriech (160) and Garett Fentz (170) gave the Grizzly Cubs a perfect night.
