Weight Class Synopsis

The best record here was that of St. Louis sophomore Henry Milligan.  At 6-2 he won the Brusly Invitational with a 6-0 decision over second-seeded Bryson Walker of Brusly.  But in a dual meet he lost to East Ascension’s Nicholas Russell.  That docked him a spot because a full 50% of De la Salle’s Byron Phillips, III’s wins were one match over Russell.  Actually this weight class was seeded just fine, even though Phillips and fifth-seeded Camden Maroon of Church Point respected the seeding committee’s choices come awards time..

Walker avenged his Brusly Invitational loss to Milligan with a 4-3 win that put him in the finals.  Milligan cruised past Maroon in 1:05 to make the consolation finals.  There he met sixth-seeded Joel Marchand of Hannan, who avenged a quarterfinals 3-1 SV loss to fourth-seeded Aden Laborde of John Curtis with an 8-4 consolation semifinals win.  Milligan took third in 0:41 and Maroon defeated Laborde via a fall in 4:13 to place fifth.

A Philips duck-under to a double-leg lift after 40 seconds put Walker on his back, and Phillips recorded the fall 21 second later.  Unfortunately, the action happened before the LWN photographer was able to get back from the podium area to photograph it.
