Wrestling: Shaw wins Bruin Invitational, Teurlings outduels Parkway to take Ken Cole
While Teurlings Catholic and Parkway are the teams to beat in Division II wrestling in 2019, do not sleep on Archbishop Shaw.
The Eagles are a contender and proved that again Saturday, capturing the Bruin Invitational at Bonnabel with Fontainebleau finishing a competitive second. Covington was third with Hahnville fourth and John Ehret fifth.
The Eagles had three individual champions, including Reheem Bonnet (113), Ashton Surrency (126) and Armando Amaya (152).
Fontainebleau had a pair of winners, including Tanner Melendrez (182) and Kyle Boell (195).
Hahnville also had a pair of champions, including Allen Mire (160) and Logan Brimmer (220).
Brother Martin sent some of its reserves and two emerged victorious, including Ross Mayer (132) and Rocco Horvath (145).
A year ago, Teurlings Catholic and Parkway tied for the Division II state wrestling championship in Bossier City with 244.5 points each. The two combatants figure to duke it out again for the title again this year.
A preview of what to expect at CenturyLink Center Feb. 8-9 took place in Lafayette at the annual Ken Cole Invitational Saturday at Comeaux High.
The Rebels got the upper hand, winning the event with Parkway finishing second. Comeaux was third with St. Amant fourth and East Ascension fifth. Archbishop Rummel was the top local finisher, coming in ninth.
