LEXINGTON – The McCreary Central wrestling program was well-represented in the KHSAA State Championships at Alltech Arena Friday-Saturday. Senior Nathan Prosser led the way for McCreary Central, which is under the direction of head coach Gary Parriman. Prosser placed sixth in his weight class.
“We wrestled well,” Parriman commented, following his team’s appearances in the state tournament. “Seventh grader Blake Botts wrestled two great matches but unfortunately came up short in both of them to go 0-2 in his first state tourney appearance. Junior Triston Conatser, in just his second varsity season, wrestled great. He first lost to the number seven ranked wrestler in the state. He then wrestled the number 10 ranked wrestler and was able to pick up the win. His third match was awesome as he scored first and done very well the whole time before making a slight error in the third that cost him the win. He finished 1-2 on the weekend. The one lone senior on the team, Nathan Prosser, wrestled lights out. He won the first two rounds pretty handily before running into the defending state champion in the quarterfinal. He wrestled lights out and come up short giving up a score early in the third and was unable to regain control. He lost 5-4 he then notched two wins under his belt. Both of the wins were by pinfall as he wrestled his way onto the podium with a very impressive final day performance. Nathan worked his way to a sixth place finish with a very impressive tourney.”
