WRESTLING: Red Devils win 13th match of season

Jan. 19—NEW ALBANY — The Jeffersonville Red Devils wrestling team picked up its 13th victory after a 40-28 triumph over host New Albany Bulldogs on Thursday night.

Jeff won eight of 14 weight classes to finish 13-9 overall for their 22nd straight winning season.

"I'm super proud of our kids," said Jeff head coach Danny Struck. "We always set the hardest possible schedule we can, ever worrying about wins or losses of the team. I play with the kids, saying my goal is to find someone to beat you and your goal is to try to beat everyone I put out there. They understand that competing against the best is the way for them to achieve their goals, whether by the end of the season or somewhere else in life. Competition is always important to moving forward."

The winners for Jeff were junior Aidan Stellato, 120-pounds; senior John Stivers, 126; senior Dawson Slaughter, 138; junior Isa Santos, 144; junior Maltie Zilling, 165; sophomore James Dyer, 190; sophomore Gavin Grisham, 215; junior Ben Land, heavyweight.
