Baylor is Second, Cleveland Third

Saturday, December 14, 2013 - by B.B. Branton
CLEVELAND - 12-14-13 -- Undefeated Archer High School (Ga.) showed why it is No. 23 in the nation as the wrestling Tigers went 5-0 to win the Al Miller-Cleveland Duals Saturday. 

The Tigers (15-0) defeated Heritage (Ga.), 71-9, McCallie, 61-15, and Christian Brothers, 62-14, in pool play, followed by a 50-21 triumph against Father Ryan in the semis and Baylor (47-20) in the finals

"We had a good day and this tournament is a good test for us," said Archer coach Tom Beuglas.

Host Cleveland defeated Father Ryan, 37-31, in the third place match as Blue Raider 285-pounder John Gaither registered a pin in the final match to claim the team victory.

"I am proud of our guys as we stepped it up in the Ryan match and found a way to win," said Cleveland coach Jake Yost.

"It's tough to beat a real good team two times in two days (Cleveland beat Ryan, 31-29, Friday night.)''

Yost pointed to the 220 match as Koran Kennedy won Saturday, after losing Friday.

"That was a huge win for us, as Koran lost on Friday but turned it around today."

Cleveland's Chris DeBien (126), Austin Stevison (132) and Ethan West (195) went 5-0 on the day.
