Danville's Lang takes second at Anderson invitational

December 14, 2003

LAWRENCEBURG - Derrick Lang of Danville finished second in his weight class at the Anderson County Invitational, and two other Danville wrestlers finished third in the season-opening meet.

Lang pinned two opponents in less than a minute before being pinned by Bourbon County's Justin Ishmael 92 seconds into his championship match in the 215-pound class.

Chris Booth (125 pounds) and Phillip Mathis (152) each rebounded after losing their first match to win three straight matches and earn third-place finishes in their respective brackets. Booth won his third-place match by major decision; Mathis won by pin.

Matt Booth was fifth at 140 pounds.

Danville coach Jeff Selby said it was a typical first meet of the season for the Admirals.

"We saw some good things, and we saw a lot of stuff we need to work on like usual," Selby said.
