(Jan. 12, 2018) The Stephen Decatur wrestling team dominated its competition, winning 78-6 over the Kent County Trojans and 69-8 over the Cambridge Vikings, during Wednesday’s tri-meet in Cambridge.

“We improved on our feet and on top, but we need to get off the bottom much better,” Decatur Coach Todd Martinek said. “We seem to be in good shape. Looking forward to the War on the Shore [tournament this weekend].”

Decatur earned nine pins during the Kent County match.

Senior captains Justin Manganiello (195 pounds) and Cade Solito (126), juniors JJ Purnell (152) and co-captain Lukas Layton (170), sophomores DJ Taylor (182), Keegan Mitchell (120) and co-captain Jagger Clapsadle (113) and freshman John Hoffman (160) pinned their opponents.

Senior Shakur Nock made his varsity debut and “looked great,” Martinek said. He pinned his 285-pound competition.

Senior captains Jeremy Danner (132) and Caleb Bourne (220), junior Jhymir Blake (138) and sophomore Shamar Baines (106) won by Kent County forfeit.

Baines (106), Mitchell (120), Blake (138), Purnell (152), Layton (170), Taylor (182) and Nock (285) pinned their Cambridge opponents.

Danner outscored his 132-pound competition 9-5. Cambridge forfeited matches to Solito (126), Clapsadle (113), Bourne (220) and senior David Braciszewski (145).
