The Fort Osage wrestling team goes into its final dual of the season next Tuesday with a chance to win a conference title.

And that’s something Indians coach Bob Luke wasn’t sure his young team would be capable of this year.

But the Indians dominated Raytown South 54-20 Wednesday night to improve to 4-0 in the Suburban Middle Six and 6-3 overall.

“It’s nice to be in a position to have a chance at that,” Luke said, referring to the league crown, which will be on the line Tuesday when the Indians travel to Lee’s Summit West.

Luke’s junior class led the way Wednesday. Junior Spencer Gearhart (152 pounds) improved to 14-0 with a third-period pin of the Cardinals’ Tylor Kraus.

Junior Tyler Naudet (160) needed just 40 seconds to record his pin, and junior Ian Bailey (171) posted an 8-5 victory over Anthony Barnes.

“Our juniors wrestled as well as I’ve seen them on any single night this season,” Luke said. “Spencer, each match his conditioning improves, and he’s looking good right now.

“All of our guys were real aggressive tonight.”

Sophomore Tanner Ginavan (189) also impressed Luke with a pin in 2:57.

“That’s the first time for Tanner at 189, and it was good for him and good for the team,” Luke said.

Dillon Taff (215) also won by pin, and Zach Bailey (135) won a decision for the Indians.

Donovan Gordon (285) and Lenny Boose (119) recorded pins for Raytown South. Dominique Garlington (145) outlasted Fort’s Kaleb Brockmeyer for a 29-17 major decision, and Ace Downs (112) also won a major decision for the Cardinals.

Fort Osage dominated the junior varsity match, 63-6.
