Parris wins second state title, Negangard 5th, Ruberg 7th

Indianapolis-  Lawrenceburg’s Mason Parris defetaed all-comers for a second consecutive season and won his second straight IHSAA Wrestling State Championship.

The 220-pound junior, 53-0 this season and 159-1 in his varsity career, stood tall and stood proud on top of the podium inside of Bankers Life Fieldhouse shortly after pinning Corbin Maddox of Daleville in 2:46.  Maddox was undefeated in his 50 prior matches this season.

Leading up to the title tilt, Parris made quick work of Martinsville’s Clayton Scroggs on Friday (1:58 fall) and Donnie Crider of Harrison (1:31 fall) in his first match Saturday.

The semifinal pairing was a familiar one as Parris faced off with his state championship opponent from last year, Gunnar Larson of Avon.  Larson (ranked second) went the distance with Parris (ranked first), but the Tiger won by major decision, 17-5.

Larson went on to take third place with a 15-5 major decision over Monrovia’s Garrison Lee and was presented with the Ward E. Brown Mental Attitude Award.

Two other local wrestlers made the podium.  Fellow Tiger Jake Ruberg placed seventh at 170 and East Central’s Andrew Negangard placed fifth at 152.

Ruberg (42-6), a senior, opened Friday night with a technical fall victory over Jordan Rader of Peru.  Ruberg lost his opening match Saturday in a tight 3-2 decision to Monrovia’s Eli Stock.  Stock went on to claim the 170 pound state title.  Ruberg then fell 4-2 in OT Jarod Swank of Penn but ended his high school career a winner as he topped Bellmont’s Bryce Baumgartner 4-2 in extra time.

Negangard (44-3), an East Central senior, also began the state finals with a Friday win taking out East Noble’s Nathaniel Weimer 8-6.  Next up for the Trojan was Evansville Mater Dei’s Joe Lee.  The undefeated Lee beat Negangard in a 14-2 major decision then went on to win the 152 pound state title.  Negangard closed the tournament with two victories to finish fifth.  He defeated Hunter Reed of Columbia City, 6-1, then pinned Crown Point’s Noah LaMore in 1:22.
