Weight Class Synopsis

With the exception of an upstart freshman from Teurlings Catholic this weight class went just as predicted.

Glenn Price was the best 120 lbs. wrestler in the state this season, having defeated the season-long #1 Dylan Lauriano and defending Division II state champion Isaac Dees of North Desoto while winning the Louisiana Classic, an event in which he made the finals in his freshman and sophomore years.  He also defeated the future Division I 120 lbs. Division I state champion Jacob Houser of St. Paul in a dual meet.  Actually, Houser and Lauriano were the only two opponents to last six minutes with Price.  There was little doubt that Price would win his third Division II state title.  He did so in three matches which lasted less than four minutes combined.  This was his third.  The last to wrestler to win four Division II state championships was Brock Bonin in 2016.  The last Shaw wrestler to win three state championships was...NO ONE.

Rummel's Carter Burgess was Price's opponent in the finals.  Burgess was a runner-up in 2020 also, but he is only a junior.  He has one more year to go.

Teurlings Catholic's Brennan Boyer was correct in dismissing the seeding by defeating fourth-seeded Dees in the first round (quarterfinals) and third-seeded Kade Bourque of Carencro in the consolation finals.  The freshman entered the championships with 13 wins and just three losses.  His three losses were a 1-0 match against Luc Johnson (Division III runner-up), and to both of the Division I 120 lbs. finalists, Jacob Houser of St. Paul (a 9-3 loss) and Kent Burandt of Brother Martin (Burandt was only ahead 4-3 until he scored a very late takedown and pin).  Losses just do not get any better than that.  Suffice to say neither Burgess, third-seeded Kade Bourque of Carencro nor Dees lost to opponents with the resumes of the guys to whom Boyer lost.  And Boyer defeated Sulphur's Doc Miller, who placed fifth in Division I.  Look at the podium pictures and try to find someone who looks happier than Boyer.

Dees and Guidry met in the match for fifth-place, won by Dees in 4:55.

While seeded only fourth, it should be noted that one of Isaac Dees' 13 wins was a 12-8 win over now two-time Division I runner-up Burandt, although Burandt defeated Dees the following day.  The win over Burandt would have serious repercussions, in theory, in the Division I 120 lbs. weight class.

Shaw's #1 seed Glenn Price won his third Division II title with a 0:47 fall over second-seeded Carter Burgess of Rummel
Just from the photos it looks like Burgess tried a lateral drop and briefly put Price on his back.  But Price used the momentum of the drop to roll through it and put Burgess on his back, to stay.
