INDIANAPOLIS — The dream continues for four Hancock County wrestlers.

Greenfield-Central’s Josh Farrell and Ian Early and New Palestine’s Tommy Cash and Connor Robinson won their first round wrestling state finals matches Friday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse to guarantee themselves a top-eight state finish.

They’ll return to downtown Indy today only three wins away from every high school athlete’s ultimate goal: a state championship.

Farrell, a 138-pound junior, has been in this situation twice, winning his Friday night match only to lose Saturday morning, ultimately finishing with a seventh-place medal last year and a sixth-place honor two years ago.

“Losing Saturday morning isn’t acceptable anymore to me,” Farrell said Friday shortly after making quick work of Franklin’s Jacob Stevenson with a technical fall, 23-8, victory.
