OAKS, Pa. –The star-studded Pennsylvania Blue squad took 11-of-18 matches from Ohio to claim the freestyle crown at the 14U National Duals. The 46-31 win gave The Keystone State first place and national bragging rights in both freestyle and Greco-Roman.


The championship dual, which was a rematch of the Greco-Roman final held on Friday, began with a bang for Pennsylvania Blue, who won four of the first five bouts by either technical fall or fall. Alek Palko of Pennsylvania Blue kicked the dual off at 136 pounds with a 10-0 technical fall over Ohio’s Andrew Moro. Mario Hutcherson, Chase Hetrick and Kevin Oswalt helped keep the Pennsylvania Blue momentum strong early on with impressive victories.


Jakob Hoke got Ohio on the board with its first win in the 149-pound contest. He edged Chaney Lewis Jr by a 6-5 tally. Ohio wouldn’t score another win until the match order dropped down to the lightweights as Jaxon Holtz picked up a 6-4 decision win at 71 pounds.


Most of the remaining bouts were tightly contested with Pennsylvania Blue picking up five wins by regular decision compared to three for Ohio. Pennsylvania Blue also scored technical fall wins from Aiden Kunes at 114 pounds and James Whitbred at 130 pounds to cap off the dual. Similarly, Ohio had two bonus-point victories in the back half of the dual from Cohen Reer at 83 pounds and Urijah Lopez at 110 pounds.


Other members of the golden Pennsylvania Blue crew to secure victories in the finals were Kooper Deputy at 77 pounds, Keegan Bassett at 87 pounds, Max Dinges at 92 pounds, Mateo Gallegos at 97 pounds and Greyson Music at 119 pounds.


Illinois pulled a reversal in the third-place dual, ousting Wisconsin 47-36 in a rematch of the Greco-Roman medal match won by The Badger State crew. Three Illinois athletes picked up pivotal pins in the match: Radic Dvorak at 149 pounds, Isaac Barrientos at 165 pounds and Thomas Banas at 125 pounds.


Minnesota Blue catapulted by Missouri Red in the fifth-place match thanks to nine bonus-point victories. Heavyweight Andrew Olson and 83-pounder Odin Duncombe won by pin for Minnesota Blue, while Tyler Ruff, Garrett Bjerga, Sully Marx, Gage Bjerga, Connor Surrette, Lincoln Robideau and Zane Engels each won via technical fall.


Iowa battled back for a seventh-place finish after completing a 47-32 win over Georgia. Tyde Nelsen, Riley Watts and Hayden Hutt boosted Iowa to the win with quick pins.
