Meridian Mustangs Win Thayer Central Wrestling Invite

For the first time in school history, the Meridian Mustangs wrestling team captured the team title at the 10-team Thayer Central Invitational Jan. 24 at Hebron.

Meridian won the team championship scoring 125 points while South Central Unified placed second with a score of 123.50 points.

We have been coming to this tournament for a long time and weve either finished towards the end or somewhere in the middle, Meridian Mustangs wrestling coach Chris Placek said.

This feels great, as this was a total team effort. The kids have been improving all season long. This was a huge accomplishment with two kids out of the lineup. I told the guys that I was proud of them. I also told them, if we can do this without two guys, just think what we are capable of when our whole team gets back to being healthy, Placek said.
