NEW PALESTINE — As soon as the final horn sounded Wednesday night, Chad Red wanted to start today’s morning practice right then and there.

And as a whole, the Dragons know there is more work to be done if they want to be crowned champions of the Shelbyville Sectional come Feb. 1.
No. 12 NP fell 37-19 to No. 2 Franklin in its final dual meet of the season Wednesday. The separation between the two squads wasn’t as wide as the final score would indicate — the Grizzly Cubs won eight matches; the host Dragons six — even though Franklin sported seven wrestlers ranked in the top 10 of their respective weight classes by IndianaMat.com.
