Reynolds reclaims Class AA title


SHARON — Cats advance

The Panthers did show a little bit of disappointment over the semifinal loss to Reynolds.

“I thought we could have pulled it out,” said junior Matt Humes, who was 3-0 on the day. “A couple bonus points in a couple matches, it could have worked out differently.”

The Panthers and the Raiders were tied at 13-13 through the first six bouts. But Reynolds looked like it was pulling away after winning four of the next five matches, moving ahead 29-16. Humes was the lone exception for Saegertown, notching a 7-1 decision over Cam Cianci at 138.  

Saegertown senior Andrew Boylan was able to stop Reynolds’ momentum at 160. The Raiders’ Mike Millero led Boylan 6-3 in the second period and was in on a deep shot when the bout took a dramatic turn.

“There’s this move that coach calls the elevator that works only about 25 percent of the time,” said Boylan. “(Millero) came in hard, so I hit it.”

The move flipped Millero onto his back and Boylan smothered him.

“He was going out of bounds, so I just pulled him in and squeezed.”

Boylan got the pin in 2:51. That cut Reynolds’ lead to 29-22 with two matches remaining. But the Raiders’ Curtis Arnold (170) and Moffett (182) finished things off with back-to-back decisions.

“I feel that we did pretty good,” said Saegertown’s No. 2-ranked 106-pounder Devin Brown. “We came up short with Reynolds, but we made big progress from the last time we wrestled them.”

Brown was 3-0 on the day, getting a forfeit victory and a pair wins by fall, including one over Reynolds’ 12th-ranked Seth Hogue.

Boylan, Dylan Reynolds (182/195) and Tyler Vath (120) were also undefeated during the event.

Along with a forfeit, Reynolds, ranked 12th in the state at 182, added a pair of exciting wins by decision. He beat Greenville’s Justin Reynolds 4-3 and, in the semis against the Raiders, downed the 11th-ranked Henry by the score of 5-2.

Vath, who is ranked sixth in the state at 113, also earned one win by forfeit. He added a major decision over Reynolds’ Nick Nottingham. And he came out on top in one of the more exciting bouts of the day as he and Jamestown’s 11th-ranked 120-pounder Jonas Reaugh went head-to-head.

Vath came from behind to tie the score at 4-4 at the end of regulation. Neither scored in the first overtime. But in the first rideout, Vath caught hold of Reaugh as the Muskies’ senior tried to escape from the bottom and turned his back to the mat to record the pin in 7:27.

“I think he was trying to granby and I just hipped him over,” said Vath. “Hopefully if I see him again I won’t have to come back as much.”

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
I’m torn. It’s not right what she did, but it sounds like the mother had few other options.
