The Canisteo-Greenwood wrestling team made it six straight Section V titles, this time in Class BB with a win over 100 points away from the second place finishers.

Geoff Havens of Canisteo-Greenwood was named coach of the year thanks to three wrestlers winning a title and four taking second place.

Wellsville came close to crowning three champions themselves, but Xander Outman, Shane Davidson and Gabe Black all settled on second place finishes in their respective weight classes.

“It was a good weekend, everyone fought hard and wrestled tough. Five freshman are going up to Brockport and we have some senior leadership joining them as well,” said Wellsville coach Tyler Carman. “I’m looking forward to yet another big weekend for our guys. We had three guys fight for Sectional titles against some of the best wrestlers out there. They may not have gotten their patch, but they fought hard and got a chance to go out and compete for more.”

Outman fell to Letchworth’s Chris Shearing at 160 pounds via pin-fall, Davidson to Byron-Bergen’s Malachi Smith in a narrow and hard-fought 3-1 decision at 189 pounds, and Black in a 6-2 decision defeat to the hands of LeRoy’s Tony Piazza at 215 pounds.

Other placements the Lions garnered were from Jayden Acker (third place, 110 pounds), David Clark (fourth place, 118 pounds), Jack Cicirello (fifth place, 132 pounds), Brayden Riley (fifth place, 138 pounds) and Matt Ritter (sixth place, 152 pounds).

Fillmore/Keshequa saw three of their grapplers all find the podium at the end of the day, with Graham Howe and his fifth place finish at 110 pounds leading the way. Alivia Cartwight (118 pounds) and Gage Hartman (189 pounds) both placed sixth.

“Graham, Liv and Gage were our leaders today. While all three fell in the Quarterfinals, they were able to battle back through the wrestle-backs to punch their tickets to Brockport next week,” said Fillmore/Keshequa coach Jarrett Vosburg. “While their path wasn’t the easiest, days like today are ones that mark growth in underclassmen careers. We hope to use next weekend’s State Qualifier as yet another learning experience in a season that has been all about growth and improvement.”

Next weekend, the Super Sectional Tournament will officially get underway with a chance to lock in a bid for the New York State Tournament on the line. The action will begin next Saturday, February 11 at SUNY Brockport.
