The 38th George Trygg Memorial Tournament was held last Saturday at Grace King High School in Metairie, Louisiana.  The event is the longest running tournament in the greater New Orleans area, having first been held by Grace King coach Sam Sara in 1983.  Since Sara's retirement Coach Roberto Furtado has continued the tradition.

The Rummel Raiders had three champions, two runners-up and two third-place finishers to help score 196 points to win the event.  Kaiden Triche, Jake Brandstetter and Mason Scholl won championships for the Raiders.  Liam Ritchie and Cameron Gandolfi placed second while Nathan Hester and Jack Seither placed third.

De la Salle placed second with 175 points.  Liam O'Connor and Jason Krail won titles for the Cavaliers while Dylan Duvernay, Malachi Benetrix, Jewel Scott, Austin Young and Aiden Harden placed second.

Jesuit was a distant third with 119 points, followed by Hannan (112 points) and Holy Cross (107 points).

Other Awards 

[LEFT] St. Paul freshman Caleb Shartle won the tournament's Sam Sara Outstanding Wrestler Award, as voted by the coaches.  Shartle went 4-0 with a fall in 1:48, followed by a 9-1 MD, an 8-2 semifinals win and a finals fall in 0:22 over Hahnville junior Kevin Dezam.  The freshman's first two opponents were also juniors, while his semifinals opponent was a senior.  [CENTER] Brother Martin's Noah Confidence, who placed third at 113 lbs., won the Phillip Romig Warrior Award.  The Warrior Award goes to the wrestler the officials believed showed the greatest "heart" despite the circumstances in which they found themselves.  Confidence pushed defending Division III state champion Dylan Duvernay of De la Salle to the limit in the semifinals, forcing Duvernay to score a reversal with five seconds remaining in a 7-6 Duvernay win.  The Brother Martin sophomore also  won his consolation semifinals match by a point, 8-7.  [RIGHT} Coach Mike Lachey of Lakeshore won the Ray Gremillion Coaching Distinction Award, determined by tournament director Roberto Furtado.
