NOTE: Connor Stampley (14-1) advanced to the finals where he will meet the #1 seed, sophomore Andrew Munn (14-4) of St. Thomas.

NOTE: Connor Stampley (13-1) advanced to the semifinals with a 16-9 win over Cory Clark (11-5) of Klein. He will meet third-seeded Wyatt Alvis (12-1) of Martin.

Comeaux coach Keith Bergeron has made it a tradition to enter his seniors in The Woodlands Open, located in The Woodlands, Texas, north of Houston.  The trip is to provide some interstate competition as well as to foster a sense of camaraderie between his seniors to make them better leaders for their underclassmen teammates.

Last season Tyrek Malveaux suffered his only loss of the season in a double overtime finals match against St. Thomas' Ricky Regas.  Senior Abram Sellars also placed in the runner-up spot.

This year four Spartans made the trip: Connor Stampley (126 pounds), Jacque Girouard (152 pounds), Nicholas Malveaux (160 pounds) and Cabot Bellard (170 pounds).

Stampley, a 2013 Division I runner-up at 113 pounds, is seeded second at 126 pounds.  He entered the tournament with a 10-1 record and, after a first round bye, advanced to the quarterfinals with a 16-0 technical fall in 3:03 (that is one point for every 11.4 second) over Jeremy Vaughn of Belaire High School (Texas, not Baton Rouge).  In the quarterfinals Stampley will face off against Cory Clark (10-3) of Klein, TX.

At 170 pounds Cabot Bellard (3-0) is also in the quarterfinals.  In the first round he won a close 6-4 decision over College Park's William Conlon (8-4), and he followed that with a fall in 3:23 over Clear Springs-1 opponent Marco Ybarra (10-4).  Bellard meets the top seed Ade Randle (12-1) of Martin, Texas, in the quarterfinals.

Girouard (0-2), wrestling at 152 pounds, received a bye in round one and then ran into top-seeded Mike Oramus of Klein (7-0) who scored a fall at 3:04 to send Girouard to the consolation bracket.  There he will wrestle Jake Brown (3-6) of St. Thomas on Saturday.

Malveaux (8-5), at 160 pounds, also received a first round bye.  Next he met fourth seed Brice Bryan (8-1) of Cy-Woodlands.  In a high scoring contest, Malveaux fell short 17-11.  He will next face Jason Thompson (9-8) of Klein.

Two northwest Louisiana schools, the Doyline Panthers and the Loyola College Prep Flyers, also sent teams to the tournament.

At 160 pounds Doyline senior Johnny Brooks-Feaster (7-5) won his first match 7-3 over Klein's Jason Thompson (9-8).  In his next match he fell in a tight 3-2 match to Martin's Sean Deloach (11-3).  He will face Episcopal (TX) opponent Charles Cutler (0-2) on Saturday.  Sophomore John Innocencio (6-9) received a first round bye at 170 pounds and then lost to Conroe's Connor Webber (10-2) in 4:44.  He will face Eric Weigand (2-4) of Kingwood next.  His brother Chris (8-6), at 182 pounds, also received a first round bye and then lost to Ethan Silva (7-3) of Oak Ridge in 5:40.  He will meet Martin's Jared Fisher (7-5) next.

At 113 pounds Loyola's Armand Zachary (junior: 4-0) was seeded fourth and won his first match against Ghalleb Calderon (0-2) of Clear Springs-2.  He will meet Ryu Turcois (10-4) of Klein Oak-1 in the quarterfinals.  Alonzo Zachary (senior: 2-2), competing at 152 pounds, lost to Joey Wiskofske (3-0) of The Woodlands-Green by a high scoring 25-10 technical fall at 4:51.  In the consolation round Saturday he will face Tylin Williams (2-2) of Clear Springs-2.  At 160 pounds Amir Ansar (senior: 3-4) defeated Conroe's Carlod Rodriguez (2-7) with a pin in 1:35.  In the second round he fell to Matt Broussard (7-3) of Klein Collins.  He lost his first consolation round match in 3:08 to Klein Oaks-1 Drew Chrisope (4-2).

Should they make it to the 160 pounds consolation finals, Malveaux and Brooks-Feaster could wrestle for third place.
