Cam Tesari takes 157-lb bracket at Midwest Classic in Indy
COLLEGE WRESTLING - Tessari wins 157-pound bracket; Reed fifth, Gonzalez seventh as Lindsey Wilson Wrestling captures ninth place of 35 teams competing at Midwest Classic. STATS
By Charles Balcom, Assistant Sports Information Director
News from Lindsey Wilson College
INDIANAPOLIS, IN (Sun 17 Dec 2017) - Cam Tessari captured the 157-pound bracket title as the Lindsey Wilson wrestling team finished in ninth place overall at the 39th Annual Midwest Classic on Sunday, hosted by the University of Indianapolis.
The ninth-place team finish matches Lindsey Wilson's best-ever team finish at the highly competitive Midwest Classic that featured 24 teams ranked or receiving votes in the NCAA Division II poll, including eight of the top 15 teams. Lindsey Wilson also posted a ninth-place finish at the event during the 2013-14 season. LWC accumulated 62.5 team points across the two-day competition.
Tessari (ranked No. 2 at 157 pounds in the NAIA) beat a pair of ranked opponents in overtime en route to the first-place finish, the first title a Blue Raider has claimed at the competition.
In his semifinal matchup, the senior moved past Central Oklahoma's Bryan Dutton (No. 7 in NCAA D2) with an overtime TB-1 8-6 victory to secure a place in the finals. In the championship bout, Tessari met Wisconsin-Parkside's Pernevlon Sheppard (No. 12 in NCAA D2). For the third time in his title run Tessari saw his match go into overtime, and just like the previous two, the Monroeville, Ohio native emerged victorious with a TB-1 2-1 victory to claim the title.
Brandon Reed and Colton Gonzalez were also in action on Sunday in their respective consolation brackets.
Reed (No. 17 at heavyweight) began his day with a 2-1 victory over Eldon Valery of King (TN) and followed with an 8-2 victory over No. 10-ranked Deaken McCoy of Ashland (Ohio). He suffered his second loss of the tournament when he fell to No. 4-ranked Caleb Cotter of Central Oklahoma 7-3. Reed received a forfeit in the fifth-place match to take fifth place.
Gonzalez (No. 6 at 174) opened Sunday with a 13-5 major decision over Allan Person of Central Missouri. He then fell to No. 10-ranked Christian Price of Ashland before receiving a forfeit in his next match to capture seventh place.
Wisconsin-Parkside took home the team victory with 137 points, edging out second-place Ashland at 117.5 points.
