Indians’ Morrisette takes top Super 14 wrestling honor

Douglas Fritz • Feb 14, 2020 at 7:30 AM

Dobyns-Bennett twins Tre Morrisette and Clint Morrisette, with a combined record of 83-2, were at the forefront of area wrestling this season.

It was a close call, but Tre edged his brother to be chosen as the Johnson City Press/Times News wrestler of the year on the annual Super 14 team.

The team was selected Thursday after input from area coaches. Dobyns-Bennett’s Wesley Idlette was chosen as the coach of the year.

Tre Morrisette has a record of 42-1 while collecting first-place finishes at the Brawl in the Hall and the Bear Den tournaments.

Area wrestlers will hit the mats this weekend as the Region 1-AAA individual tournament will be held at Volunteer’s gym in Church Hill. Championship matches are set to begin around 4 p.m. on Saturday. Top qualifiers earn berths to the state tournament.
