GREENCASTLE -- Going into Saturday's Greencastle High School Holiday Wrestling Tournament the Tiger Cubs were looking to get back on the winning track.

The Tiger Cubs hosted Sullivan, South Vermillion, Covington and Monrovia.

Winning is exactly what the Tiger Cubs did, sweeping all four rounds of the tournament.

Going into the final round the Tiger Cubs took to the mat against Sullivan High School for the championship. Both teams were 3-0 on the day.

Wrestling at 140 Tyler Hudson was the first to take the mat for Greencastle. Hudson pinned Robert Graves of Sullivan helping lift the Cubs to the team title.

Hudson was one of seven wrestlers that pinned their opponents in the final round.

Coach Matt McComish said that his team was looking to improve on their performance from Thursday night's County Wrestling Tournament. The Tiger Cubs fell to Cloverdale at the county tournament.

"We were very disappointed after the county meet," McComish said. "Coming into the tournament we decided to go back to the basics."

With only two seniors and one junior on the team, McComish said his team is learning as they go.

"We have a lot of younger kids that are going to make mistakes," McComish said. "We have to learn from those mistakes though.

"After watching film from Thursday night we talked about what we did wrong."

McComish said he was proud of how his wrestlers competed.

Greencastle wrestlers earning tournament honors were Nick Pingleton (119), Kody Collins (135), Carter Lewis (152), Blaine Fenwick (189) and Jesse Vermillion (215).

Each wrestler won all four rounds.

The Tiger Cubs will host Avon High School Tuesday night.
