Brother Martin dominates Division I Meet

Call it a precursor for the Division I state tournament in three weeks at Bossier City.

The inaugural Division I Dual Meet at the University of New Orleans may have served as a dress rehearsal for a coronation for powerful Brother Martin.

The Crusaders continued their dominance in-state, sweeping through five opponents en route to the title.

In the final, Brother Martin drilled defending Division I state champion Holy Cross 55-7. The gap between the two best teams in the state in any class continues to grow.

On Dec. 15, Brother Martin edged Holy Cross 29-24 in a dual meet at Brother Martin. Last week, Brother Martin won the Louisiana Classic with Jesuit second and Holy Cross third, 120 points back.

The Crusaders won 12 of the 14 bouts against the Tigers Saturday.

Winning by pin for the Crusaders against the Tigers were Daniel Croy (126), Alex Duncan (138), Patrick Evans (145), Noah Roux (160), Michael Clapp (182) and Mack Brown (285).

On Friday, Brother Martin pitched a pair of shutouts, blanking Dutchtown 79-0 and Lafayette 81-0. On Saturday, the Crusaders handled Airline 68-12 and Catholic of Baton Rouge 64-9 before taking care of Holy Cross.

Scoring falls in the semifinals for Brother Martin were Ethan Castex (113), Justin Leal (120), Croy (126), Ross Meyer (132), Seth Alfonso (152), Roux (160), Jacob Fereday (170), Cameron Frederick (195), Kyle West (220) and Brown (285).

Holy Cross reached the final by whipping Lafayette 75-0 and Dutchtown 75-6 on Friday. In the quarterfinals, the Tigers downed St. Amant 51-15 before handling Jesuit 47-24 in the semifinals.

Scoring falls in the semifinals for the Tigers were Caruso Signorelli (113), Michael Lundin (120), Jacob Spahn (126), Mason Macaluso (138), Logan Heffner (182) and Brady Maillet (285). Winning by pin for the Blue Jays were Nathan Koenig (152) and Perry Ganci (220).

With 17 state championships, Brother Martin had a five-year run of consecutive state titles snapped by Holy Cross a year ago. It certainly appears that No. 18 is in the offing for the Crusaders.

Brother Martin returns to action next Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in a dual meet at St. Paul’s while Holy Cross faces a rematch Wednesday evening at 6:30 p.m. in a dual meet at Jesuit.
