A-10 wrestling: Robinson finishes third overall, Berkeley fifth

INDIAN ROCKS — Dejazz Woods' triple overtime decision gave Robinson a 215-pound championship Thursday night, but it was a disappointing championship round for the Knights.

Trailing Clearwater Central Catholic by 23.5 points heading into the medal round, Robinson had an outside chance to catch the Marauders, but even with six competing for a title, Woods was the only one to pull it off.

Clearwater Central Catholic won the team title with 197 points and Northside Christian (159) grabbed titles in the first six weight brackets to pass Robinson (153.5) for second. Berkeley Prep placed fifth (114).

"We always wish we could have done better, but we're proud of our 14 guys," said Knights coach Tom Montero. "We have (half) freshmen and sophomores in the lineup."

Woods and Berkeley Prep's Schyler Miles matched up in the 215 title bout. Both were locked in a 2-2 tie after regulation and Woods won it with an escape in the third overtime. Damien McKinzie (103), David Nguyen (112), Anthony Murphy (140), Joey Applegate (152) and Chris Padilla (160) all finished second. The Knights will send 11 to regionals.

Berkeley Prep finished with three champions and will send eight to regionals. One of those champs was sophomore Ryan Pickren (145) who decisioned Ian Ryan 9-6 in the finals. Other Bucs champs were Mark Timmel (171) and David Turkel (285).
