Wrestling: Millers, Huskies get two champs each at Super Six

The wrestling season opened in Hamilton County on Saturday, with Noblesville traveling to Hamilton Heights for the Huskies Super 6.
The Millers, in their first meet under new head coach Michael Weimer, went 2-3 for the day. Noblesville beat Heights 43-21 and Tipton 40-34, falling to Lawrence Central 45-34, North Central 54-18 and team champion Pendleton Heights 51-19.
Two Miller wrestlers went undefeated for the day and were thus crowned champions in their respective weight classes. Dalton Huffman was a 5-0 perfect at 126 pounds and Justin Johnson-Sparks went 5-0 at 132 pounds.
Tim Alexander (at 106) and Gary Kitko (at 138) both finished 4-1 at the event, while Zack Perkins (at 152) went 3-1.
“I was excited about the team,” said Weimer. “Today was a learning experience for myself and everyone.”
Weimer is pleased with his team’s enthusiasm and said his wrestlers are trying everything he’s showing them.
“The atmosphere is something very exciting,” he said.
The host Huskies finished 1-4 for the day. Heights beat Tipton 55-18 for its win, then fell to Pendleton 45-24, North Central 58-18, Lawrence Central 45-33 and Noblesville.
