A-J Wildcat wrestler Dylan Fox moves on to sectional
Anna-Jonesboro Community High School’s Dylan Fox decisioned Pinckneyville’s Jordan Koester 8-7 in the 3rd place match at the Harrisburg Class 1A regional Saturday, Feb. 6.
Fox, 15-11, who wrestled in the 138-pound class, is the lone Wildcat wrestler to advance to the Class 1A sectional at Carterville this weekend.
The 1st through 3rd place finishers advance to the sectional. Fourth place wrestlers advance as alternates and compete in their respective classes if a grappler doesn’t show up.
A-J had four wrestlers finish in fourth place who will advance as alternates. The Wildcat foursome includes Paul Hileman, 120 pounds; C.J. Youngerman, 145 pounds; Ben Dowdy, 182 pounds; and Nick Jimenez, 285 pounds.
The Wildcat wrestlers couldn’t compete in four weight classes at the regional because of injuries, A-J head coach Eric Massey said.
