Spencerport won the team title with 319 points - putting nine wrestlers in the finals, with four champions, and ending with 14 top-six placewinners overall.

From the Jamestown (NY) Post-Journal

12/16/01- Spencerport's power has never been doubted around the Southern Tier. Just to be safe, the Section 5 wrestling powerhouse made sure it stayed that way.

Of the 15 weight classes at Saturday's final day of the 17th annual Jamestown Holiday Classic, Spencerport had a wrestler place in 14 of them, including putting nine wrestlers in the finals and four atop the podium. Needless to say, the Rangers were dominating en route to their third title at Jamestown Community College's Physical Education Complex in four years.

Spencerport finished with 319.5 points, more than 90 points better than second-place Lakeview, to claim the championship while starting the tournament with 44 straight wins to get a solid jump on the competition. ''I've had good teams, but I've never seen that,'' Spencerport coach Bill Jacoutot said of his team's opening streak. ''I've never seen it. ''We still have a lot to work on - we're losing some matches that I think we should win, but, overall, how could I say that we are not pleased. We put 95 percent of our wrestlers in the semis and 60 percent in the finals.'' And that was more than enough for a team whose first-day total of 91.5 would have placed them 12th in the 37-team tournament.

Fredonia finished as the top team from Chautauqua County, compiling 157 points for a fourth-place finish while also claiming two individual titles as Caleb Carnrite and Justin Perry each took the top spot on the podium in their respective classes. "This wasn't four or five guys coming in and scoring points,'' Fredonia coach Alex Conti said of his team's performance. ''I think our team ended up in fourth place overall, but it's because we had 13 of our guys score points for us - that was the best part. ''The kids came back, wrestled tough and stayed off their back and that was the important part.''

The 171-pound Carnrite found himself down 6-2 and unable to get much going after the first period of his finals showdown with Spencerport's Matt Morris. But Carnrite turned things around in the second period. With the score still 6-2, Carnrite scored a takedown with 32 seconds left in the second, then benefitted from a pair of near-fall points to even the match entering the final period. Carnrite struck first in the third with another takedown, this one coming with 1:17 remaining, to take an 8-6 lead. Morris managed to escape, cutting the lead, to 8-7, but was unable to score again, leaving Carnrite the champion.

''I think the back points I got at the very edge of the mat was the turnaround in the match,'' Carnrite said. ''The kid was tough. I just had to hit my switches and work behind him.''

Perry's title came in a much less-dramatic fashion as his 130-pound opponent, Nick Stoltz of Dubois, was forced to forfeit the match. Perry wasn't the only champion crowned due to a forfeit as Ripley's Marc Babcock won the 145-pound title when Hickory's Carman Russo forfeited for medical reasons. ''I really would have liked to win it on the mat, but I've never done good here and it's just a real honor to be a champion here at JCC,'' said Babcock, last year's Section 6 runner up. ''I figured this tournament would really show me if I have what it takes to win a sectional title.''

One of the most dominating finals performances came from Southwestern's Jim Nelson. Nelson, Western New York's top-ranked 215-pounder, wasted no time against Spencerport's Ben Plucknette in the finals, taking him down in the opening seconds of the match. Nelson kept Plucknette down for the entire first period, flirting with a pin the entire time, before finally completing the fall 53 seconds into the second period. ''I wanted to pin him, because that's what I do,'' said Nelson, who recorded four pins just to get to the finals. ''I just wanted to set him up, shoot my double, taking him to his back and pin him.''

The only other finals pin came from Lakeview's Tim Gadsby, who scored a 2:47 fall over Spencerport's Blake Woodward at 112 pounds.

Ripley's Scott Johnston and Panama's Bob Russell each worked themselves into the finals, but ran into trouble in the championship. Johnston couldn't get anything working on the 103-pound top seed Brett Woodward of Spencerport as Woodward rolled to an 8-1 victory. Russell, the 140-pound second seed, fell behind early to top-seed Josh Lange of Niagara Wheatfield and could never recover as Lange claimed a 7-2 win.

Newfane's Ryan Needle claimed the 135-pound title with his 9-1 victory over Spencerport's Mike Brongo while also being named the tournament's Most Outstanding Wrestler.

Josh Fuller, Mike Terenzi and Don Zimmerman each claimed an individual title for Spencerport. Fuller topped Dubois' Brandon Dixon, 4-2, at 96-pounds while Terenzi scored a 4-1 win over Jeremy Hazlett of Newfane at 125 and Zimmerman opened the championship matches with a 15-10 downing of Dubois' Dom Morelli at 160 pounds.

Ridgway's Josh Anderson became a four-time Jamestown Holiday Classic champion with his 10-1 win over Newfane's Jeremy Stopa at 119 pounds. Ron Haywood and Matt Holsapple each won titles for Sharpsville. Haywood claimed the 152-pound title via tie-breaker over Spencerport's Steve Stuplin while the 189-pound Holsapple scored an 8-6 victory over Lakeview's Deke Ison.

Lakeview's Brad Watson claimed the 275-pound title with a 2-0 downing of Ryan DeArment.

From The Derrick
JAMESTOWN, N.Y. - Lakeview's Tim Gadsby and Brad Watson defended their titles to lead the Sailors to a second-place finish in the 37-team Jamestown Holiday Classic.

Spencerport won the team title with 3191/2 points. Lakeview finished with 227.

Gadsby, who won his championship last season at 103 pounds, claimed the 112-pound crown with a pin in 2:47 over Spencerport's Blake Woodward.

Watson repeated his title at heavyweight where he posted a 2-0 decision over Ryan DeArment of Hickory.

Deke Ison also reached the finals for the Sailors, losing an 8-6 decision to Sharpsville's Matt Holsopple at 189 pounds.
