Prep wrestling: Jefferson gets past East Troy, Pirates finish 3-0 at quad

January 12, 2019

EAST TROY — Sophomore Aaron Heine took the mat knowing he just had to win and the dual was theirs.

The Jefferson Eagles trailed by three points and if he won by decision, they had the tiebreaker due to East Troy getting hit with an unsportsmanlike conduct earlier in the dual. Heine took in the moment and completed the pin 20 seconds into the third period to give Jefferson a 42-39 victory against East Troy in a Rock Valley Conference dual on Thursday which had conference title implications.

Heine and Brady Lehman each weighed in at 170 pounds which afforded co-head coach Devin Weber and E.J. Pilarski the luxury of wrestling Lehman against East Troy 170-pounder Jake Dessart. The coaches were confident Heine could beat 182-pounder Connor Paulin and they knew Dessart was one of the best Trojans.

“Brady went out and took the bullet against their stud,” Weber said. “That set it up for Aaron.”

And Heine performed.

“He came off the mat and said he loved the pressure,” Weber said. “The crowd was going nuts. He was excited, everyone was excited. I think that’s going to be a huge win for him.”

Earlier in the dual, Sofia Brynman-Metcalf (126 pounds) and Logan Nguyen (138) each earned pins for Jefferson after trailing in their matches. Brynman-Metcalf was behind by five points before coming back to tie the match and eventually pinning Drake Kulick in 5:22. Nguyen trailed Nik Moat 4-1 before a timeout for a bloody nose helped him regain his composure. He responded by pinning his opponent in the second period.

“Those (wins) are huge,” Weber said. “It gets coach Weber yelling ‘let’s go’ really loud and it makes the kids laugh and I think they feed off of it. When they’re out there with so much emotion, they’re having fun. When that’s happening, everyone is wrestling their best wrestling.”

Jefferson competes in the Rock Valley Conference dual meet tournament hosted by Walworth Big Foot on Saturday.
