— At 138 pounds, Teddy Kugler pinned Shawn Conners (Red Creek) and Kyle Bush (Mynderse Academy) to reach the finals, but fell to Hannibal's Alex Race 9-3 and settled for second place.

Petroff, beaten in the semifinals at 120, recovered to beat Hannibal's Greg Hadcock 5-1 for third place. Mike Nourse had the same finish at 145 pounds, routing Jake Yates (Mynderse) 14-3 to prevail in the consolation bracket. Dan Cossitt, by pinning Chris Pinckney (Port Byron) in 2:31, got to third place at 152 pounds, and Lucas topped Mike Carbonaro 5-1 for that same finish.

Biviano took fourth place at 113, with Evans fourth at 126 pounds and Hayden Polhamus fourth at 195 pounds. LaHart was fifth at 99 pounds, with John Nannery getting to fifth at 220 pounds when he beat Dakota Carswell (Hannibal).

Back in OHSL Liberty division action on Thursday night, the Lakers ripped past Jordan-Elbridge 69-16, aided by seven Eagles forfeits to Polhamus, Biviano, Kugler, Lucas, LaHart, Cooper Holgate (106 pounds) and Anthony Rinaldo (132 pounds).

Phillips did wrestle, though, and pinned Ryan Hubbs in 1:22 as Nannery, in five fewer seconds, pinned Andy Chambers. Nourse and Evans both managed second-period falls, while Cossitt, in the closest match of the night, topped Collin Ennulat 4-1.

Chittenango returned to action last Tuesday, going to East Syracuse-Minoa and earning enough points in the early going to hold off the Spartans 45-27.

Graham opened the meet by fighting past Cody Loope 9-5. In between forfeits to Casey Placito (285) and Wyatt Blanding (113 pounds) Carbery, pinned Jasyn Burns in just 22 seconds.

After Bixby (120) squeezed out a 1-0 decision over Jeremy Murphy, Blanding got a 21-5 technical fall over Kyle Parella, after which Brad Phelps (138) pinned Kevin Morris in 1:14 and Regan (145) took just 28 seconds to pin Frank Kulas.

Correy Wilmer earned the Bears’ other points, at 160, with a 15-4 romp over Alex Seamans. Rob Tyson (126) lost a narrow 9-8 battle to Sam LeGro and Tylar Wilmer, at 170, fell to Eric Spero 4-2.
