Wrestlers Boyle, Davidson nab one win each at State meet
The Kaneland High School wrestling program can be pleased that they not only sent two wrestlers to the Class 2A State meet at Assembly Hall in Champaign, but also had those grapplers get a win on the Illini mat.
With Kyle Davidson competing at 145 points after finishing third at Sterling High Schoolâ€™s sectional, and Knight Jimmy Boyle also having finished third at the sectional, the Knight duo had opening round matches this Friday and Saturday.
Both Davidson and Boyle both achieved opening round wins before losing quarterfinal matches.
Davidson, who finished the 2009-10 season with a 37-11 record, defeated Rich Centralâ€™s Ishmael Rempson in a 7-2 matchup before losing to Triadâ€™s Josh Ballard in a 13-1 major decision. Ballard ended up finishing fourth place overall in the bracket.
For Boyle, who finishes with a sizable 41-win total, got the best of Riverside-Brookfieldâ€™s John Schraidt by pinfall in 3 minutes, 33 seconds. Boyle then was defeated by Sprinfgieldâ€™s Dave Casper in a 1:48 fall.
In 2009, Kanelandâ€™s Jay Levita was the lone Knight rep down at State, and lost to Springfieldâ€™s Dane Atwood, 9-3.
With the season at a conclusion, the grapplers say goodbye to graduating seniors Dennis Brettman, Ben Gust, Joe Levita, Alex Mollohan, Deven Scholl and JT Webb.
