Whitley's Siler brings region title home in 120 lb. division

CORBIN — By Chris Parsons

Staff Writer

The Region 8 wrestling meet went off without a hitch last weekend, with one local wrestler bringing home first place in the 120 lb. division, which qualifies him for the state meet in Lexington starting Friday.

Whitley County’s J.T. Siler was able to pin Wayne County’s J.D. Criswell in 2:20 for the championship. Siler beat Perry County Central’s Joe Melton 12-9 in his first round match, then pinned John Hardin’s Dillion Francis in 1:48 en route to the finals.

Others qualifying for the state meet were Bradley Hollis (126 lb.), who lost in the second round to Jordan Justice in 1:23, but finished fifth, which sends him as an alternate.

Brandon Lawson lost to John Hardin’s John Niece via pinfall in 1:03 in the quarterfinals, but the fourth place finish sends him to Lexington as a four-seed.

Devin Carroll (152 lb.) was beaten by Ashland Blazer’s Dakota Sloas in 3:24, but his fifth place finish was also good enough to land a spot as an alternate.

“I'm real proud of what we've accomplished this season,” Whitley County coach Justin Bozeman said. “J.T. has a good shot at state title thanks to a good draw, so we'll see what these kids can do at the state level.”

 Kyle Garrett (132 lb.) was beat in first round action by Charles Cokley of Perry County Central; Jordan Brooks (138 lb.) lost via pinfall to John Hardin’s Josh Jude in 2:19, John Watson (155 lb.) fell in the second round to John Hardin’s John Young and as for the heavyweights, Whitley County didn’t fare any better as the weight went up.

    The word hero is used a little too loosely for my taste these days.
