Prep Wrestling: Bulldogs claim outright CCC championship
Thomasville finished off its Central Carolina Conference championship in style Friday, waltzing to a 59-12 decision over rival Lexington that gave them the outright crown.
The Yellow Jackets won just one match on the mat with the other coming on a forfeit.
Kailon Bratton started the night off with a pin for the Bulldogs with 28.5 seconds left first period at 170. It was answered on a pin by the Yellow Jackets. Saul Pisa was trailing 6-3 to Thomasville's Edwardo Rivera, but made a key move to put Rivera in trouble and pinned him 35 seconds into the period.
Anthony Brisano broke the tie in the second period at 195, pinning Cesar Campos to give the Bulldogs a lead they would never surrender. Keith Clemmons tacked on six more points with a pin of Victor Corteras in the first period.
With no heavyweight grappler, THS allowed Lexington to trim it down to 18-12 on a forfeit. It was all Bulldogs from then on.
Rayshun Moore (106), Hygee Martin (113) and Jason Boutsady (120) all nabbed decision wins.
At 132, Ahsan Butt wrestled up from his regular 126-pound class and managed to pin his opponent a minute into the second period.
Kyree Colson (138) added a victory by decision as did Brett Hokenson (145), before Trevor Bille (152) and Evan Makupson (160) concluded the evening with pins.
Thomasville swept league competition with a 5-0 mark and are 38-4 overall.
