The Fivay Falcon Wrestling team successfully defended their 2012 SAC Championship by narrowly winning the 2013 Championship hosted by Hudson High School.
The Falcons qualified Six wrestlers for the finals (Cole Manion 106, Troy Reed 120, Andrew Scherer 145, Nico Lightfoot 170, Collin Hahn 182, and Kelly Meus 285) and four of them earned Championships at their respective weight classes.
Scherer continued his run of victories in the conference vs. his foe from Anclote.
Lightfoot defeated Spencer Baxter from Gulf in overtime, who had previously beaten Lightfoot at the Gulf Holiday duals.
Hahn defeated Jared Kruse, also from Gulf, who had given Hahn one of his two defeats earlier in the season. Kruse pinned Hahn at the Gulf Holiday Duals, but this time Hahn was able to fend off the myriad of throws Kruse attempted and scored a Major Decision 18-1.
Meus finished the evening for the Falcons with a hard fought 4-2 victory of Hayden Krautner from River Ridge. Manion and Reed finished in 2nd Place. Robert Jorden earned 5th place at 126 and Cole Weinhauer finished in 6th place at 195.
When the final scores were announced it appeared Fivay had come up short in their quest for a repeat title. The Falcons were announced in Third Place, only two points behind the River Ridge Royal Knights. But a scoring error was discovered as the results for the Lightfoot Match were entered incorrectly and when the correction was made, the Falcons came out on top again in 2013.
Congratulations Falcons and Good Luck at the District Tournament next weekend hosted by Anclote High School!
