Division III - 145 pounds: Landry becomes North Vermillion's second repeat champion
March 25th, 2016 | Written by: Editor



With a 6-0 shutout of De la Salle's Conrad Wyre in the finals, North Vermillion's Brennen Landry became only the second Patriot to win two Division III state championships, joining Garrett Granger who won titles in 2008 and 2011.  Landry is the Patriot first to win consecutive titles for North Vermillion, and will have a chance next year to score a "hat trick" with three of them.


Brennen Landry did not lose to a Division III wrestler this season, and most importantly had a win over De la Sale's Conrad Wyre in the finals of the Brusly Invitational before the state tournament.  He also won the Lafayette Metro Tournament over Teurlings Catholic's Jacob LaFleur.  In the Jacob McMillan and the the Ken Cole he placed fourth.  It took some quality Division I and Division II wrestlers to get past Landry, including names like Thaquan Priestly (LAF), Hunter Fitch (COM), Andrew Aucoin (SH), Brennan Webb (LO) and Hunter Bourgeois (StP).  Landry also had 10 victories over Division I opponents. 

De la Salle's Conrad Wyre had a very busy season.  He wrestled 43 matches against Louisiana competition and won 39 of them, with three losses to Division I opponents and one to Landry.  He won the Pearl River Invitational, the Bulldog Brawl and the Greater New Orleans Division III District Tournament.  He placed second in the Brusly Invitational and the Trygg Memorial.  Among his victories were matches against Fontainebleau's Leaf Ballast, Shaw's Collin Ballas and Dutchtown's Mason Fereday.

A freshman from Kaplan surprised a lot of people by placing third.  Dylon Case was seeded sixth and lost, as expected via his seeding, in the quarterfinals to third seed Connor Costello of Ouachita Christian after suffering a match-ending injury.  "Match-ending," however, is much different than "tournament-ending" or "season-ending."  Case came back in the consolation rounds with falls in 0:40 and 4:41.  He added another in 3:32 over the higher-seeded Jacob Pelle of Crescent City, and then upset the third-seeded Costello 7-6 to place third.
