NLL Wrestling: Napoleon third behind powerful Perrysburg


HOLLAND -- The Napoleon Wildcats finished fourth at the Northern Lakes League wrestling tournament where the Perrysburg Yellow Jackets dominated on Saturday at Springfield High School.

Perrysburg won with 273.5 points, followed by Anthony Wayne (121), Springfield (115) and Napoleon (97).

Seth Baird was the lone champion for the Wildcats at 113 pounds and was one of only three winners not from Perrysburg.

Baird defeated Perrysburg's Mario Guillen by a 5-3 decision.

Justin Miller was the only other wrestler from Napoleon to make the championship round but the senior was defeated by Leo Romp of Perrysburg, who defended his title from a year ago.

Jake Pedraza won his third place match for Napoleon at the 126-pound class where he scored a 9-2 decision over Southview's Colton Crawford and Caleb Baldridge (170) recorded a 9-4 decision over Scotty Harder of Anthony Wayne. Zach Leatherman pinned Southview's Patrick Schroder in 2:49 and Alex Pettit won his third place match by pinning Springfield's Donnie Summers in 3:24.

The Yellow Jackets had finalists in 13 of the 14 weight classes, with the lone exception at 220-pounds where Mark Delas was unable to defend his title because of injury.

Perrysburg won 11 championship matches in all and saw J.P. Newton become the sixth four-time NLL winner. It also marks the program's 14th title in school history, leaving it two behind Springfield, which has won 16.
