WRESTLING: Fehlman, Gross place first at STOWA Tourney

FREWSBURG, N.Y.-Warren junior D.J. Fehlman and freshman Solomon Gross each wrestled to individual championships at the 2013 Southern Tier Officials Wrestling Association Tournament Saturday at Frewsburg High School.

Fehlman went 3-0 in the 132-pound weight class en route to his first-place finish, picking up pins in his first two matches and winning the final via a 17-0 technical fall.

Gross, a heavyweight, was 4-0 on the day. His semifinal and final matches both went to ultimate rideout.

Garrett Smead lost by a single point in the 160-pound final to finish second, and Alex Streich was also second at 220.

Derek Reagle (170), Cody Gunn (182), and Stephen Crone (195) each placed sixth with identical 3-2 records. The Warren trio was unable to wrestle for fifth place due to a rule prohibiting more than five matches in one day.

Falconer took home the team title with a total score of 188 points. Warren finished fourth in the 15-team field with a score of 132.50

The Dragons will return from the holiday break when they host a team-duals tournament at 8 a.m. Friday morning at Warren Area High School.
