Wrestling: Jesuit impresses against Rummel
NEW ORLEANS – While Brother Martin is the Division I favorite in Louisiana and St. Paul’s is the defending state champion, do not sleep on Jesuit.
The Blue Jays are getting healthier and getting better. That was evident again Wednesday night.
Jesuit started slowly but finished in dominating fashion in a 63-14 dual meet victory over Archbishop Rummel at Tom and Gayle Benson Arena Wednesday night.
The Blue Jays won 11 of 14 matches and scored nine falls to handle the Raiders.
After the Raiders won three of the first five matches, Jesuit ripped on nine straight wins to win easily.
Winning by pin for Jesuit were Chase Haydel (120), Luc Columb (138), Jackson Ballay (145), Nash Hannemann (160), Ian Bohn (170), Winn McConnell (182), Jackson Caldarero (195), Griffin Ellis (220) and Dennis Dougherty (285).
In the best match of the night which went back and forth, Ferdie Laudumiey of Jesuit edged Jake Brandstetter or Rummel 7-6 at 126 pounds.
The Blue Jays had 10 starters in against the Raiders, who were missing two starters as well.
Winning by fall for the Raiders were Kaiden Triche (106) and Carter Burgess (132).
The Raiders were penalized a point in the meet.
Jesuit coach Jon Orillion was very pleased with the result.
“They wrestled well,” Orillion said. “I felt we did really well last weekend but we were looking for a little more out of the Louisiana Classic. Anytime you wrestle well like that, you wanted to make sure we didn’t have a letdown and would wrestle well in this dual meet. I think the guys responded very well. It just shows that we’re getting there. We’re focused on February.”
Jesuit will send a few starters with several reserves to the Ken Cole Invitational in Lafayette this weekend while Rummel will also participate in the event.
The Blue Jays will get a huge measuring stick as to how far they have progressed when they host Brother Martin next Wednesday while Rummel will participate in a three-way event with De La Salle with St. Paul’s on the same evening.
“We’re looking forward to wrestling Brother Martin,” Orillion said. “We haven’t dueled them in a while. They put up a lot of points on us at the Louisiana Classic. We just want to get our hands on them and see where we’re at. You’ve got to judge yourself against the best out there.”
