Ryle senior claims state wrestling title

By James Weber • jweber@nky.com • February 23, 2009

After seeing three of his teammates fall short of a state title, Jacob Bradford tried not to put any extra pressure on himself.

The Ryle High School senior wrestler put a lot of pressure on his opponent instead and came away with a championship.Bradford won the state title at 189 pounds last weekend, beating Sheldon Clark's Brad Stafford 9-2 Feb. 21 in Frankfort.

After being tied 2-2, Bradford controlled the third period. He finished 49-3 for the season.

"It's great," he said. "I put in a lot of hard work, and it finally paid off. I'm so happy right now, top of the world, It's a dream come true."

Ryle head coach Tim Ruschell said Bradford was in better condition than his opponent.

"The hard work pays off and Jake paid all the dues," Ruschell said. "He did the offseason work and dedicated himself to wrestling."

Bradford, a Union resident, said he tried to focus on taking care of business after seeing three other Raiders lose in the state finals.

Ryle's four finalists were a school record.

Junior Michael Osborne (49-6) fell 4-2 to Matt Zarth of Henry Clay at 119, losing on a two-point takedown in the final seconds.

Junior Austin Palmer (47-13) lost at 125 to Aaron Carr of Union County, losing 10-1.

Senior Will Hogben (48-6) fell 8-1 to Trinity's Brad Hitchings at 171.

Ryle had seven placers in all. T.J. Ruschell lost in the semifinals at 103 and finished fourth.

Court Mace finished seventh at 152 after winning four consolation matches. Connor Coyle finished seventh at 160, losing to four-time state champion Harrison Courtney of Woodford County in the quarterfinals.

Ryle finished third in the team standings.

"I thought we had a shot (at the state title)," Tim Ruschell said. "It was a good tournament. I'm proud of the boys and the way they fought. We've never had four guys in the finals. Seven placers is a pretty good showing."

With some true teamwork, Ryle advances all 14 of its wrestlers

Sixth Region wrestling tournament

By Richard Skinner • Enquirer contributor • February 15, 2009

If there was any real drama for the Ryle wrestling team to meet the goals its coach had jotted down on a piece of paper prior to the Sixth Region tournament, it came during Saturday morning's weigh-in.

That's when undersized sophomore Curtis Lusco had to make sure he weighed at least 132 pounds to wrestle in the semifinals of the 140-pound weight class and ensure that Ryle would be represented in all 14 weight classes at the state tournament Thursday through Saturday in Frankfort.Turned out, thanks to what Lusco called "a pretty big breakfast" of a protein shake, toast, cereal and "about three pounds of water," he came in at 133.5 pounds.

Never mind that he wasn't able to upset the No. 2-ranked wrestler in the state (according to kentucky wrestling.com) in the 140-pound weight class in Campbell County's Korey Shotwell, who went on to win the regional title.

But Lusco did his part to make sure Ryle will have the all-important maximum number of wrestlers in its quest to win the first state wrestling title in school history after finishing runner-up last season.

Ryle won the Sixth Region team title for the fifth straight year, this time by 57 points over rival Campbell County thanks to eight champions, three second-place finishers, one third-place finisher and two fourth-place finishers, including Lusco.

"It was kind of funny at the weigh-in, all of (the other wrestlers) were trying to get under (weight) and I was trying to get over," said Lusco, who wrestled mostly on junior varsity at 130 pounds throughout the season with an occasional appearance at the 140-pound spot on the varsity. "I didn't use the bathroom for over an hour even when I had to go."

Said Ruschell: "He was a little blue in the face when he came to the scales, but he made weight. The 140-pound class has been one we've been searching to find somebody all year and Curtis really stepped up for us."

Ryle lost 140-pound standout Bryan Peace to graduation after he won back-to-back state titles in 2007 and 2008. Lusco wrestled in the regional tournament after winning an intra-squad wrestle-off for the spot.

"That was big of him to step up and win the wrestle-off and then do what he did in the regional," said senior teammate Ryan Jefferds, who pulled a mild surprise at 215 pounds by upsetting Boone County's Quintin Hauser in the semifinals before falling in the finals to Campbell County's Jacob Ilg, the No. 3-ranked wrestler in the state. "We needed all 14 of us to make it to state, and he came through big time."

There were few surprises in the final individual results with the No. 1 seed winning all but two of the classes. The two mild surprises came in the 152-pound class, where Scott's Zach Sowder, ranked No. 8 in the state, beat No. 3 Justin Black of Campbell County in a technical fall, and in heavyweight, where No. 17 Brandon Adams of Ryle pinned Dixie Heights' Joe Gronefeld, who is ranked No. 13.

"Overall we wrestled well," said Ruschell, who said that before the tournament he wrote on a piece of paper that 11 of his wrestlers would reach the finals, which they did, and all 14 would make it to state. "Jefferds' semifinal win was a bit of a surprise, but I told him before the semifinal match that there was a wrestler inside of him and he finally let it out. It was a good day for us."

While Ruschell admits he's proud of what his team accomplished, the big goal lies ahead next week. The Raiders are ranked No. 2 in the state behind Louisville Trinity.

"It's a big deal to get all 14 of us down to state because it can come down to a one- or two-point difference between first and second so everybody counts," said Lusco.

Ruschell said he thinks his team is peaking at the right time thanks to a tougher than normal schedule.

Ryle wins 5th straight Regional Championship Ryle wins 6th Region with 8 Regional Champions and qualifies a wrestler in all 14 weight classes

for state for the 2nd year in a row.

Region first for Raiders

Coach has state hopeful taking it one step at a time

By Marc Hardin • Enquirer contributor • February 13, 2009

Region first for Raiders
The Enquirer - 2/13/2009
To his varsity wrestlers, Ryle coach Tim Ruschell is the glue that holds the program together and is the reason the Raiders may be standing on the verge of their first state wrestling championship

Tim Ruschell was doing a couple things at once in his Grey Middle School

classroom before heading over to Ryle High School for wrestling practice

Among them, the Ryle coach was trying to find a roster of his 14 varsity wrestlers, each a candidate to advance as a state qualifier out of Saturday's second day of the regional meet at Ryle. The Sixth Region championships begin today at 6:30 p.m. and continue Saturday at 10 a.m."I'm doing too many things at once and talking about too many different things," Ruschell said. "I'm not too good at multi-tasking."

His wrestlers would disagree.

To them, Ruschell is the glue that holds the program together and is the reason the Raiders may be standing on the verge of their first state wrestling championship.

"He worked out with us (Thursday) morning at 6:30 and had bus duty (at Grey Middle School), and he teaches all day, and he still made time to start his day with us and now he's coming back," said junior Michael Osborne, who is ranked second in the state at 119 pounds. "He's got more passion for the sport than anybody I've ever met. He's always looking for ways to make us better, and he looks out for us and teaches us life lessons we can't get any where else."

Ruschell has guided the Raiders to six straight top-10 state finishes, and Ryle wrestlers have captured individual state championships each of the past two years. But the task at hand for Ruschell is keeping his grapplers focused on the region.

"We sent 14 to state last year. That's our goal this year," Ruschell said. "Our lineup is very solid, top to bottom. But anything can happen at a regional meet."

Ryle has won four straight regional championships. The Raiders finished second at last year's state meet, behind Louisville Trinity.

With 10 state qualifiers returning, the Raiders beat the Shamrocks in January in the finals of the talent-drenched South Oldham Dragon Invitational.

Expectations this season are justifiably high for the Raiders, but Osborne knows regional rival Campbell County, No. 4 in the state, has the same goal on Saturday - advance as many wrestlers as possible to the state meet, to be held Feb. 19-21 in Frankfort.

"Our goal is to win state, but we can't overlook the region," said Osborne, a fourth-place state finisher last year at 112 pounds. " Campbell County's chances of winning the region and state are just as good."

Other top-five wrestlers for Ryle, ranked second in the state behind Trinity, are Will Hogben, No. 2 at 171 pounds; T.J. Ruschell, No. 3 at 103 pounds; Connor Coyle, No. 4 at 160; and Court Mace, No. 5 at 152.

"Those guys at the lighter weights give us a chance to do something we've never done before," Ruschell said. "Our whole team is ready."
