By Matt Wurzburger
Sports from Lindsey Wilson College
ROME, GA - (Sat 19 Nov 2016) Jake Burroughs and Cam Tessari won the tournament titles at 133 and 157 pounds, respectively, and seven other wrestlers placed in the top six in their weight classes at the Shorter Open on Saturday.
Burroughs won four matches on the day to win the 133-pound bracket. The sophomore opened competition with a 7-4 victory over Immanuael Henderson before recording an 18-2 technical fall over Central Florida's Edison Garcia.
Then in the semifinals, Burroughs defeated Life's (Ga.) Lucas Patterson 17-5 to punch his ticket to the finals, where he pinned Jazziel Sanata of Southeastern (FL) in six minutes and 58 seconds.
Tessari (ranked No. 1 at 157 pounds) racked up four victories, the first two via pinfalls, in his blitz through the 157-pound bracket.
In the semifinals, Tessari defeated Gio Bonilla (No. 14 at 157) of Southeastern 17-2. He then battled South Florida's James Nereim to a 4-0 decision victory in the final.
At 174 pounds, Colton Gonzalez fell 3-2 to Southeastern's Zach Colgan in the championship match. Gonzalez recorded a pinfall victory in his first match of the day before eking out a 4-2 victory over Marlon Morales of Shorter (Ga.) in the first overtime period.
The freshman from Connersville, Indiana reached the final with a 15-3 major decision over North Georgia's Edward Vergera.
Heavyweights Raynel Brown and Luke Shaffer both placed in the top six. The two wrestlers started the day with two wins and one loss, setting up an intrasquad matchup in the consolation semifinals.
Brown got the best of his teammate in the battle via pinfall at 2:04 and advanced to the championship match of the consolation bracket, where he lost to Brandon Hill 4-2 in the first overtime period to finish fourth at 285 pounds.
Corey Hinkle and Kohl Dodd placed fourth at 184 and 197 pounds, respectively.
Hinkle needed only 1:09 to pin Eugene Kinchen of Florida Gulf Coast in his opening match. The sophomore then stumbled in his next match, losing 13-4 to Jhalen Flanders, to drop into the consolation bracket, where he rattled off three-straight victories before falling 4-3 to Life's Hunter Smith in the consolation final.
Dodd also dropped his second match of the day, when Middle Tennessee's Sean Kennedy pinned him. The sophomore picked up a pinfall victory in his next match and advanced to the consolation final, where he lost to Nick Venditti via pinfall.
Kadin Scroggins and Lucas Mioza both reached the consolation semifinals at 125 and 184 pounds, respectively. Both wrestlers finished inside the top six of their weight classes.
