Coolican, Wady, Bishop third at sectionals

Over in Division II, Jordan-Elbridge's Preston Bishop finished third at 125 pounds. Bishop beat Cody Houppert (Beaver River) 7-2 in the first round, but it was after his 9-4 quarterfinal defeat to Matt Shirley (Sandy Creek) that he really began to shine.

Bishop first advanced when George Vandreaser (Holland Patent) forfeited, but he edged past Port Byron's Caleb Green 3-2 and, in the third-place match, took a 3-1 victory over Adirondack's Tyler Spann.

As this went on, Bishop's teammate, Mike Nguyen, earned fourth place at 112 pounds. He pinned Cormac Green (Port Byron) in the first round and, after losing to Dan Houghton (Dolgeville) in the quarterfinals, won close matches over Spencer Franklin (Sherburne-Earlville) and Adam Stevens (Holland Patent) before a second defeat to Houghton.

The lone Marcellus wrestler, Matt Dempsey, lost his 130-pound opener to Fabius-Pompey's Marcel LaChance in an 11-2 decision.
