After winter weather cancelled the original meeting between Litchfield, Hillsboro and Mt. Olive earlier in the week, the three rivals finally got on the mats a few days later as the Wildcats hosted the annual triangular on Dec. 19.

Litchfield would be the big winner on the night with a 48-24 victory over Hillsboro and a 46-21 victory over Mt. Olive, with the Hiltoppers beating the hosts 54-30 in the other match.

Seven of the 14 matches would be contested in Litchfield's win over Mt. Olive, with the Panthers picking up five wins in the series.

Alex Powell (106), Will Carlile (138), Jefferson Thomas (220) and Austin Dewitt (285) would all win by fall, while Blake Zumwalt (113) took a major decision win.

The Panthers earned forfeit wins from Korbe Hoover (120), Carter Powell (126) and Dylan Maxwell (182) as well. Mt. Olive would pick up 12 points from two Litchfield forfeits at 145 and 160, with both teams forfeiting 170 and 195.

The Toppers would win four of their six contested matches against the Wildcats, all of which came by fall. Keegan Murray (106), Matt Page (138), Jonah Harkins (160) and Magnus Wells (220) would all collect six points in their matches, with Wells and Page both winning in the first round.

Hillsboro would collect five wins by forfeit in the other matches, while Mt. Olive took three forfeit victories.

In the Litchfield/Hillsboro match-up, the Panthers claimed six wins in the seven contested matches.
