CANBY - Jackson County Central got the monkey off its back Thursday when it earned its first wrestling victory since Dec. 8.
After starting the season 1-1, the Huskies had dropped nine straight duals heading into Thursday’s nonconference contest against Canby. JCC had to forfeit three of the last four weight classes, but scored enough early to take a 39-36 win.

That put the match out of reach at 39-24 with two JCC forfeits on the way.
The Huskies took full control early. Cole Kapplinger(113), Justin Heckard (120), Zach Poelaert (126) and Luke Pygman (160) all had pins as the visitors jumped out to a 33-12 advantage before the Lancers began to come back.
