New Jersey wins 14U National Duals Greco-Roman title over Indiana Gold, 50-32

by Adam Engel, USA Wrestling

INDIANAPOLIS, Ind — In a span of minutes, multiple bodies flipped, and hands slapped the mat. One fall after another.

New Jersey used multiple falls in a row to crush Indiana Gold 49-29 to win a Greco-Roman national championship in the 14U National Duals in Indianapolis, Indiana.

Each team traded technical falls before the falls piled up. At 136 pounds, Indiana Gold’s Lucas Boe drove New Jersey’s Ryan Gavrish into a cement mixer for a fall. But the next four belonged to New Jersey.

AJ Di Giovanni of New Jersey needed 14 seconds to flatten Jonah Strain at 149 pounds. Strain attacked toward Di Giovani and couldn’t get a good grip. Di Giovanni used higher leverage and punished his opponent.

Di Giovanni’s next three teammates spent a combined 76 seconds on the mat. Joseph Monticello flattened Indiana Gold’s Kellen Fellure in 29 seconds. At 187 pounds, Nevin Mattessich finished off Indiana Gold’s Kaidin Cooper in 25 seconds with a front headlock. Mateo Vinciguerra continued the pin fest in 22 seconds against Hayden Smith of Indiana Gold at 250 pounds.

Indiana Gold collected two consecutive wins after New Jersey’s streak, but the damage already had occurred.

In the dual’s last match, Indiana Gold’s Braylon Reynolds won via decision, but he didn’t have much to celebrate. That was reserved for New Jersey.

In the Gold/Silver Pool third place match, Illinois used 10 bonus point wins to demolish Utah, 48-30. Iowa stopped Washington 50-35 to win the pool’s fifth place match. Pennsylvania Blue secured the seventh-place match with a 50-30 win over California. Pennsylvania Blue won five of its last six bouts.

Winning the Bronze/Copper Pool was the Minnesota Storm, Pennsylvania Red was the Red/Blue Pool champion and the Green/Yellow Pool winner was Texas.

With Greco-Roman finished, the focus shifts to freestyle. The tournament resumes Saturday at 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. MT with the freestyle preliminary pools.

Every bout is streamed live on FloWrestling.
