Madison picked up two team wins over local opponents and Shawe got its first-ever win in wrestling during a quad meet at Salm Gym on Friday.

The Cubs defeated Shawe 78-0 and Switzerland County 72-12 before falling to Greensburg 36-32 in a tight battle that went down to the wire. Switzerland defeated Shawe 60-6 but lost to Greensburg 48-12. Shawe lost to Greensburg 84-0.

Shawe fielded only one wrestler in the match, sophomore Garrett Grimes, the first wrestler in the school's history. Grimes, wrestling at 182 pounds, put up a fight before losing to Madison's Alex Moore via pin in 4:53 and was later pinned by Greensburg's Colten Black in 1:18.

But Grimes battled back to score a win over Switzerland's Cody Wilson via pin late in the third period for the Hilltoppers' first-ever win in the sport.

Madison opened the night with its win over Shawe, picking up 11 forfeits to go along with Moore's win at 182.

The Madison-Switzerland match wasn't much closer with the Pacers' only wins coming by forfeits. The Cubs got four wins of their own by forfeit off Switzerland.

Each of Madison's other eight wins over Switzerland came via pin. The highlight bout was at 220 pounds where the Cubs' Marcus Schoonover needed overtime to beat the Pacers' Tyler Thomas, a regional qualifier a year ago, by pin in 6:43.

Chayce Young (126 pounds), Trenton Dempler (132), Cameron Napier (152), Tanner Young (170), Moore (182), Mitchell Sandlin (195) and Tanner Geer (285) each scored pin/falls for the Cubs.

The final match of the night proved to be the best with Madison and Greensburg swapping wins before the Pirates pulled out the four-point victory thanks to two forfeits.

Madison won seven bouts during the match. Chayce Young (126), Chris Tingle (138) and Jordan Partee (160) each had wins by pin while Tanner Young (170) and Sandlin (195) scored major decisions.

Madison and Switzerland both have the next two weeks off before competing in their next set of matches on Dec. 6. Madison will be at the Hoosier Hills Conference Duals at Floyd Central while Switzerland will be in the Scottsburg Invitational. Shawe's schedule is still pending.
