The Taylorville High School Wrestling Team was not able to pull off an upset against a very talented Bloomington High School squad in the IHSA Class 2A Team Sectionals. Bloomington, who sent 5 wrestlers to the Individual State Tourney compared to 2 for Taylorville, beat the Tornadoes by a final score of 42-28. However, there was plenty of reason to celebrate as senior Blake Hooper made history again as he became the first wrestler in Taylorville history to win 40 matches in a single season. Hooper made history this past weekend at the IHSA Individual Tournament by becoming the first Taylorville wrestler to win multiple matches at State. Hooper as well as fellow seniors Nick Flannell, Jake Smothers, Aaron Herkert and Kyle Tex finished their Taylorville High School wrestling careers with 100 wins.
