Any upsets/surprises at any class tourneys this weekend?

5 comments

just wondering if anyone saw any upsets that might shake up the open seedings? I also like to name freshman who win titles as in my mind it definitely stands out. A few at the top of my mind are

1-Mairano over Shibazz 126 L (good win for a freshman)

2-Bergin over Sibbett 160 L(another good win for a freshman)

3-Charon over Brault 106 M(not a upset per se but shakes up the bracket)

4-Johnson 1st place 120 LL (tight race here but shakes it up as well)

5-Agoev over Tsiranides 160LL ( this kid is fun to watch)

6-Carr over Seaton 170 LL(3 seed winning)

7-Harrington winning 220 LL(2 seed winning)

8- Longo 106 LL ( 2 seed winning as a freshman)

9-Dube 195 L (3 seed winning)

10- Charon over Smith 113 class M( shakes up seeding )

11- now I don’t know much about this match but it looked interesting so maybe someone can shine some light on to it. Toland-Matos 132 class M 7 seed winning? Was there something wrong at time of seeding? Was he injured this year and just got a bad seeding? A 7 seed winning the class is always interesting and should absolutely make the open seeding interesting.

 

any others and or comments on above that you guys saw as I’m sure I missed a few.

Toland-Matos wrestled better competition during the year(lost to Fields and Nichols by a point and twice to Parrot) and ended up with a bad seed plus he was hurt for part of season so that hurt the seed. He was ranked #1 on the forum here so not really a surprise he won.

I think that any time a 4 beats a 1 in the semi's, it's at least a mild upset. Cole Shaughnessey and Sam White beat Tim Roberts and Jack Ryan and then lost close 1 point matches in the finals. 195 in Ls was crazy with Salinas beating Bartholomay in the quarters (and 5 seed Babenkov getting to the finals beating the 1 seed Toth). 15 seed Morrell getting to the SEMIFINALS be beating the 5 and 6 seeds (and then only losing by a point to Sibbett!) was a great job by him.

I thought Shaughnessy's result was a good jump up for him. Sammy White trying to go out strong...closed the gap on Johnson yesterday. Toland Matos was a state placewinner at 145 last year, wrestled a tough schedule. Class M 113 will bust the Open bracket. I think 160 will be fascinating. Freshman Bergin, sophomore Tsirinades, senior Angers.....young guns vs veteran gunslinger. There are 8 guys at 120 I could picture going to New Englands. Grats to Richie Morrell on a really strong finish to a career. Won his conference title at SWC's and a strong 4th at L's. New Englands may prove to be the true judge of the 126 weight class this year. Shamar Schand vs Justin Mastroianni in Opens? Schand taking a step up and Mastroianni having a tough year with injuries?

I agree with m113 , and the LL 120 class yesterday was some great matches. Sam,Cole,Jack,Martial,and Tyler all battled hard and had some close matches Right up to the finals And consis!

One big notice for me was Rich Morrell (160) from New Milford, 15th seed finishing 4th and was a millimeter from being in the finals. He wrestled a great tournament.
