Barbe's Darian Mitchell took home top honors at the Brute Nationals in Independence, Missouri Friday evening.  Mitchell pinned all four of his opponents, who hailed from Missouri (2), Nebraska and Arkansas, in times of 1:41, 2:58, 0:37 and 1:15.

Placing second from Louisiana were Dylan Ames of Comeaux, Brenan Langley of Basile and Cooper Simon of Rayne.  Third place winners were Basile's Gavin Christ, Comeaux's Dyllon Bernard and Evan Richards, Sulphur's Kiefer Fuselier, and Dyllon Holliday and Daniel Monroe of Haughton.

In fifth place was Barbe's William Jicks.  Sixth-place award winners were Carencro's Taylor Cray, Lance Robinson of St. Michael, Brandon Revere of Lafayette, Haroon Wali of Barbe and Kendrick Kruskie of Haughton.

Seventh-place winners were Mason Macaluso of Holy Cross and Lafayette's Thaquan Priestley.  Placing eighth were Zachary's Brandon Cosse and Joshua Guillory of Acadiana.  St. Louis' Robert Christman was one match away from gaining podium status.

For all who went 0-2, 1-2 or the like, and did not place - well done anyway!  You went to Independence, wrestled in a new arena and competed against kids from out of state about whom you knew nothing.  You learned some were a lot better than you, some just a little better, but all are human (I am not venturing into how they all put on their singlets).  Keep going to these events and the win column will start improving.  Again, 0-2 is vastly better than 0-0.
