Young wasted little time in pinning New Washington's Jacob Higbie in just 48 seconds at 126 pounds. The pin was Young's 30th of the season to break current assistant coach Dustin Bentz's 17-year-old record.
"I'm proud of Chayce. He has become a pinning specialist and has set a new standard," Madison coach Tyson Skinner said.
Young's record was the highlight of a strong night for the Cubs, who improved to 24-11 on the season, the third-highest win total in school history. Madison was forced to forfeit three weights and only scored two pins against a very game Mustang squad.
"I am proud of the guys and what they were able to do this regular season," Skinner said. "Imagine if we didn't have to forfeit two or three weights every dual."
The night also featured a rematch of the Jeff Classic finals and a possible regional final preview between the Cubs' Jordan Partee and New Washington's Jacob Franklin at 160 pounds. Partee jumped out early and cruised to an 8-2 victory while improving to an unbeaten 42-0 on the season.
"Partee wrestled OK tonight," Skinner said. "Not practicing all week and the past couple weeks of snow days has really taken a toll on our cardio."
The Cubs will have the weekend off before returning to action next Saturday for the start of the IHSAA State Tournament with the sectional at Jennings County.
