Shelbyville High School Boys Wrestling senior Garrett Brachbill won first place in the IHSA Class 1A, 152 weight class last week. Brachbill went undefeated of the season by posting a 47-0 record and it was his fourth straight state appearance. Shelbyville was also represented by senior Caleb Cloe (220), sophomore Clayton Peterson (138), and freshman Cade Helton (132). Brachbill told Regional Radio News he gives credit to his father, Tadd Brachbill for introducing him to the sport at an early age and Shelbyville High School Wrestling head coach, Greg Harkins for helping his technique.
Brachbill says he tried to not let the nerves get to him while wrestling against his opponents on the mat.
Brachbill further stated he will miss competing in wrestling and thanks his friends, family and the community’s support. He will focus on baseball as the season is not far away. His future plans are to attend Millikin University or Indiana State University to play baseball and major in Finance.
