Illinois sweeps Cadet Duals, defeats Pennsylvania 43-31 in freestyle finals

DAYTONA BEACH, FLA – Two days after winning the Cadet Greco-Roman National Duals Championship, Team Illinois doubled-up, winning the Freestyle title by a score of 43-31 in a finals rematch against Pennsylvania Red.

Illinois and Pennsylvania Red wrestled for the Greco-Roman Championship on thursday resulting in a lopsided 60-18 Illinois win. However, the freestyle finals would prove to be closer with Illinois winning by 12.

Pennsylvania took an early lead behind a technical fall victory by Andrew Dunn at 285 lbs. and a close 3-2 decision for Gavin Teasdale at 88 lbs.

Nolan Baker and Jimmy Pawelski quickly put Illinois in the lead 9-8 after securing wins at 94 lbs. and 100 lbs. for Team Illinois. From then on it was a match of streaks.

Pennsylvania got on a roll starting at 106 lbs. with Spencer Lee picking up the 10-0 technical fall. Pennsylvania carried that momentum to win the next four bouts and take 27-12 lead over the defending champions. Picking up wins during this stretch for Pennsylvania were Eric Hong (113 lbs.), Cameron Coy (120 lbs.), Evan Fidelibus (126 lbs.) and Kaleb Young (132 lbs.).

With Illinois' hopes of picking up its second national championship in Dayton Beach dwindling Isaiah White provided the spark that would carry Illinois back to the top of the podium. White recorded a 45-second first period fall over Pennsylvania’s Jonathan Ross bringing the team score to within reach at 27-17.

Illinois would go on to win five of the next six matches to close out the dual 43-31 with the only Pennsylvania win coming from Drew Phipps at 182 lbs. The remaining victors for Team Illinois were Larry Early (145 lbs.), Joey Gunther (152 lbs.), Kamal Bey (160 lbs.), Riley Demoss (170 lbs.), Allen Stallings (195 lbs.) and Tyler Johnson (220 lbs.).

Illinois has now won three of the four USA Wrestling National Dual tournaments, taking gold in Schoolboy freestyle and now Cadet Greco-Roman and freestyle. Interestingly enough the finals for all four tournaments have pitted Illinois versus Pennsylvania.

Oklahoma took out Indiana 41-37 for third place in the closest of the placement duals for the top eight teams. Ohio Red defeated Maryland 48-32 for fifth place and California placed seventh after beating Georgia Red 46-32.
