Five Cape wrestlers were crowned tournament champions and Sandwich High’s Greg Zaw was named the Tournament’s Most Outstanding Wrestler. Zaw went 2-0 on the day in the 120-lb. division, defeating Taunton’s Manny Alves by pin (2:40) and Minuteman Tech’s Zack Kreiter by pin in 1:33 in the title bout.

Blue Knights’ 113-pounder Bryon Hopkins took home the title in that weight class with a 3-0 finish on the day. Hopkins defeated  Bellingham’s Drake Ditroia (pin/0.00), Boston Latin’s Nelson Wu (pin/0:19) and Boston College High’s Adam Jennings by a 4-0 decision.

Sandwich 145-pounder Matt Landry may have had the most difficult road to the title as he went a perfect 4-0 on the day. Landry pinned all four of his opponents en route to his first place finish. He pinned, in order, Taunton’s Josh Daveiga (2:26), Tri-County Regional’s Mike Almeida (1:55), Everett’s Kevin Santos (0:21) and Boston Latin’s Michael Francis Litto (3:21).

Nauset’s Parker Morris took home the championship title in the 160-lb. division as he, too, went a perfect 3-0 on the day. All of Morris’ victories were by way of the pin. He pinned BC High’s Jake Moore (1:01), Boston Latin’s Joshua Tran (0:33) and Everett’s Donald Yancey (1:36) in succession.

Barnstable High School’s two-time defending Division 1 South Sectional heavyweight Champion Owen Murray — the only Cape wrestler ranked number one in the state — pinned BC High’s Nick Dodge (0:53) and Silver Lake’s David Pettingell (5:21). Murray remains undefeated on the season.

Barnstable also fielded a trio of runner-up wrestlers who took home second place medals from the invitational yesterday. John Goode (132), Charlie McWilliams (152) and Donnie Mach (220) went a combined 6-3 on the day to take home the second place bragging rights. The Red Raiders’ Casey Connor (126) took home a third place finish and had an exceptional day with a 4-1 record.

Sandwich added three third-place finishers to its long list of achievements, including Rob Davison (106) who went 3-1, Spencer Cleary (182) who went 4-1 and Pat Sullivan (195) who went 3-1.

Nauset’s Kyle Cambone (152) took home third place and went 3-1 on the day. He fell to Charlie McWilliams from Barnstable. Jake Colson went 3-1 in the 220-lb. division and took home third place as well. Colson was pinned by Mach in bout #296 in 2:50.
