Four Manchester grapplers went undefeated and were named individual champions en route to helping the Squires secure the team title at the Wabash County Wrestling Tournament on Saturday.
 
Junior Quentin Moore won his four matches in the 170-pound weight class, and was joined by three freshmen individual champions: Michael Wirsing at 106, Jackson Mathias at 120, and Delton Moore at 145.
 
“Michael Wirsing went 4-0 and won his first county championship,” said Manchester wrestling coach Jerimiah Maggart. “We’re happy to have him out and we’ve been telling him all year that 106 is one of those weight classes where you may have a couple forfeits or you may have a couple matches. He was able to get two pins, so it was a big day for him, an exciting day, and we’re proud of him for getting those wins."
