Madison's wrestling team got the season off to a rocky start in a 44-25 loss at Batesville on Thursday.
The Cubs were without several starters for various reasons and shifted the lineup to fill as many spots as possible.
"It is what it is. We had several of our wrestlers in different weights to attempt to maybe get the win and to top that off we wrestled very sloppy," Madison coach Tyson Skinner said. "We made mistakes I thought we were past but looks like we need to break it down Barney style for some of these guys."
The Cubs did have five grapplers claim wins on the night.
Trenton Dempler garnered a forfeit at 120 pounds, Chayce Young won by forfeit at 126, Jordan Partee won a 15-7 major decision at 152, Tanner Young won a close 13-10 decision at 160, and Mitchell Sandlin won by pin fall at 220.
"We have one senior in our lineup and he has never wrestled a match in his life before tonight and will be good to go by end of season and we will return everyone else in our lineup," Skinner said. "We are young but still have the capability of being a good team by season's end."
The Cubs competed in the Hurrle Memorial Invitational at Arsenal Tech on Saturday in Indianapolis. Madison's next match will not be until Dec. 1 when it competes in the Hoosier Hills Conference Duals at Jeffersonville.
