Brother Martin at Catholic League finals wrestling

A year removed from a very disappointing fourth-place finish, the Brother Martin wrestling team is heavily favored to recapture the Division I state wrestling title at the LHSAA championships this weekend in Baton Rouge at Raising Cane’s River Center.

The Crusaders, who have 20 state titles, including eight of the last 10 championships, have three top seeds and a pair of second seeded wrestlers in the seeds announced Monday evening.

Unbeaten freshman Richie Clementi is seeded first and is a strong favorite to win at 113 pounds. Mason Elsensohn is the top seed at 132 pounds and Rocco Horvath of the Crusaders is No. 1 at 170 pounds.

Jacob Elsensohn (120) and Kent Burandt (145) are each seeded second for Brother Martin.

The depth of the Brother Martin team is evident, with 13 wrestlers seeded in the 14 weight classes.

Defending Division I state champion St. Paul’s has a pair of top seeds in Jacob Houser (138) and Grant Nastasi (152), the latter of whom is just returning from injury. Landry Barker (160) is a second seed for the Wolves.

Holy Cross, a program with a Louisiana best 28 state titles, features a top seed in Cole Baiamonte (220) and a second seeded grappler in Nick DiGeralamo (152).

Jesuit, with 23 state championships, has heavyweight Spencer Lanosga (285) as a top seed while John Michael Bourgeois (113) and Dennis Dougherty (220) are second seeds for the Blue Jays.

Southside has a pair of top seeds in Landon Reaux (106) and Wiley Boudreaux (126).
