Unlike horseshoes and hand grenades, close doesn't count in wrestling.


For Valparaiso's Derrick Suttles, his near misses culminated in the first round of last year's Merrillville Semistate, where he dropped a one-point decision to South Bend Clay's Jaylin Allen.


A week later, Allen finished second in the state finals.


"I was that close," Suttles said. "I've been in that situation since my sophomore year. I'd wrestle ranked guys, and I was close to beating them, but I couldn't quite do it."
