Weight Class Synopsis

Carencro’s Quinn Collins was 3-0, but of his opponents, only one competed in the state championships and he did not place in Division III.  Collins placed fourth in the 2020 state championships, yet he was awarded the #1 seed.  Tre`Von Williams was 16-3 prior to the state championships.  One of those wins was a 2:42 fall over Teurlings Catholic’s Joel Lanclos in the consolation finals of the Jacob McMillan Memorial.  Lanclos was 8-5, but last season he placed first in the JV state championships.  Williams should have been the #1 seed with Lanclos second and then Collins.

But it was not seen that way by the seeding committee.  Hence, when Lanclos avenged his earlier loss to Williams with a semifinals pin in 4:26, he was slated to meet Collins in the finals.  Collins, so far, looked like a #1 seed as he won his two pre-finals matches in a combined time of 74 seconds.

Williams made it to the consolation finals where he defeated #4 Christopher Rodriguez of Haughton 4-2.  Rodriguez had been upset by #5 Garrett Billeaud, a sophomore from North Vermillion, in the quarterfinals.  Billeaud made it to the fifth-place match but lost to #7 Chad Gooden, Jr. of Shaw in 1:45.

Teurlings Catholic's third seed Joel LanClos pinned top-seeded Quinn Collins of Carencro in 5:19. 

Collins started the finals off well, taking a 2-0 lead after the first period.  He extending his lead to 4-1 in the second period via two takedowns vs. one escape by Lanclos.  After a third period reversal Collins was ahead 6-1.  But after that, save one escape given to Collins, it was all Lanclos.  First he was awarded a point for Collins locking hands.  Then he escaped with 1:25 to go.  With 1:05 left Lanclos scored on a single-leg shot and now the score was 6-5.  The two went out-of-bounds with 50 seconds remaining.  Lanclos gave Collins a point so they would start standing and a takedown would tie the match at 7-7 and probably lead to Sudden Victory.  But that was not needed.  Collins attempted a double-legs shot but over-extended himself.  Lanclos caught one deep underhook, put his other arm around Collins’ head and took the Carencro wrestler to his back, scoring a fall a few seconds later. 

Lanclos and Collins are both juniors so we may see a rematch next year.
