WRams WRaid Crossbones


Wyatt Fox (145), ranked 6th in the state, placed 3rd. He opened with a decision, 11-5, then took a disappointing loss in the semi to an unranked wrestler, Daniel Krug of Benton, 7-0. Fox won the 3rd place match over Austin Shelton of Fithian in a close decision, 4-2.

Adam Hudson (152), ranked 5th in the state and seeded #1, won the championship by sticking Shon Calvert of Mount Olive just 20 seconds into the 3rd period (4:20). He opened the tourney with a tech fall (4:00), followed by a close decision over Beau Taylor of Mt. Carmel, 5-3

Former Bantam State Champ Lucas Duckett (170), ranked 3rd in the state, was the #1 seed and it was never in jeopardy. Duckett recorded three straight pins to win the title.

He stuck Nathan Chase of Effingham in the 1st period (1:41). He then stuck Quentin Pillsbury of Olney, beating the clock in the 2nd period (3:54). In the championship match Duckett stuck Kurtis Owens of Mt. Olive in the 2nd period (3:23).

Second-year wrestler Caleb Cloe (182) stepped up to claim 2nd place. He opened with an 8-1 decision, then knocked off Justin Fyffe of Mt. Olive by sticking him in the 1st period (1:22). He faced Lucian Hicks of Harrisburg in the title match, but lost by fall in the 2nd period.

Senior Elliott Smithson (220), ranked 8th in the state, was seeded 2nd, but beat the seed and claimed the championship. Like Duckett, Smithson domainted, recording three straight pins for the crown.

Smithson stuck Kody Cohen of Cumberland in the 3rd period (4:43). He then stuck Ali Allen of Casey-Westfield/Cumberland in the 3nd period (4:36). He got to the title match against the #1 seed Devon Sievenking of Benton and stuck him as the 1st period was winding down (1:49) for the championship.

Noah Applegate (195), giving away 20 pounds, won his first match by a tech fall in 4:00. He then lost by fall, but then won in wrestlebacks, beating Brett Hodges of Effingham with a 3rd period pin (5:21), before bowing out.
