The match between Union County and Father Ryan ended in a tie and Union County won due to a penalty point against Father Ryan

That match I found was 4 years ago. Great showing for Ryan the year!!! Kudos


Baylor had a fine showing up in KC….

Edmond North, Okla., topped Stillwater, Okla., 200.5-199 for the team title. Baylor School of Chattanooga, Tenn., was third at 189.

McCallie, Tullahoma Prevail In Day Of Duals

Seven Wrestling Teams Gathered At McCallie For Extra Work Before Holiday

Wednesday, December 22, 2021 - by John Hunt

There were no team champions crowned or even individual ones for that matter as seven high school wrestling teams gathered at McCallie’s Athetic and Activities Center on Wednesday morning for a Day of Duals.

We’re almost to Christmas and there are no tournaments or dual meets in the coming days, so all of these coaches decided to come to McCallie for a few extra matches and a chance to just see which newcomer might make a difference in the coming weeks.

McCallie and Tullahoma both won three matches while Pigeon Forge headed home with three wins in four matches.  Notre Dame and Boyd Buchanan were both 1-2 while Soddy Daisy was 1-3 and Walker Valley 0-4.

“This was just a chance to get a few extra matches as there’s just too much time between now and our next dual meet,” said McCallie coach Jake Yost, noting that his team’s next match is on Jan. 6 at Notre Dame.

“I thought we did a good job for the most part, but we always have something to work on.  Right now, we’re young and inexperienced, but we’re getting better,” Yost added.

Tullahoma coach Al Morris had similar feelings.

“This is a great way to go out before Christmas,” he said.

“We needed to get some work in and this was a good chance to do that.  Also, it gives us a chance to wrestle teams that we normally wouldn’t face, so it was a good experience for us,” he added.

Pigeon Forge has won the last three Division  I, Class A-AA state titles and right now the don’t even have a winning record, but it was a good decision for coach Greg Foreman as he prepares his team for another championship run.

“This is a great opportunity for our kids to get some extra matches before Christmas and it’s been a good day for us,” Foreman said between matches.

“We have a bunch of kids who played football and they’re not all in wrestling shape yet, but it was very much worth our while to come here today.  It’s all about what we do in February that counts, but events like today help us get ready for that,” Foreman said.

“We have to get better, but this is one way of doing that,” said Notre Dame coach Tim Voiles.

“We just needed more match time before Christmas and this was the perfect chance for that, but we’ll take a few days off and then come back ready to work again,” he explained.

It has certainly been a challenging early season for Soddy Daisy and young coach Eric Winesburgh.  

“For what we brought here today, I thought we fought hard, but we can’t seem to shake the flu and other illnesses.  We had a few bright spots as some of our younger kids did well, but we just have a bunch of kids with very little wrestling experience and that learning process isn’t always easy,” he said with a positive note.

Walker Valley coach Allan Morris is facing the same challenge with young and inexperienced wrestlers.

“We’re missing some kids as some are out of town, but we certainly have a lot of growing to do.  We had a couple of young guys who went out and really battled today while we also had some of our older kids who are ready for the Christmas break,” Morris said before heading toward the parking lot.

Boyd Buchanan coach Michael Sutherland doesn’t have very kids on his team, but he’s working hard to change the culture at a school where wrestling never has been a focal point of the athletic program.

“We have some good ones, but just not enough to field an entire team,” he explained.

“Forfeits hurt as there is nothing we can do about that, but we’re going our best to change the culture at our school.  I’m really proud of our effort and I feel like we won more than we lost.  We just have to get more kids on the mat,” he added.

Wednesday’s dual-meet scores included:

McCallie 50, Soddy Daisy 30

Boyd Buchanan 48, Walker Valley 30

Pigeon Forge 52, Notre Dame 22

Soddy Daisy 48, Walker Valley 30

Tullahoma 43, Notre Dame 27

Pigeon Forge 42, Boyd Buchanan 30

McCallie 42, Boyd Buchanan 35

Tullahoma 47, Soddy Daisy 27

Pigeon Forge 33, Walker Valley 29

McCallie 66, Walker Valley 18

Tullahoma 41, Pigeon Forge 37

Notre Dame 49, Soddy Daisy 30.

To the next level, 

Hey NC Neighbors!!

Not too shabby…

The Hawkeyes’ four-point win over the Wolfpack is their narrowest of the year. The last time Iowa won by fewer than five points in a dual was against Penn State on Jan. 31, 2019. The Hawkeyes downed the Nittany Lions in that match, 19-17.
North Carolina State is the highest-ranked team Iowa has defeated this year. The Hawkeyes are now 6-0 in duals in 2021-22……


125 POUNDS: SPENCER LEE (IA) over Jake Camacho (NCST) via 6-1 decision

133 POUNDS: AUSTIN DeSANTO (IA) over Kai Orine (NCST) via 16-7 major decision

Still keeping it going in Warren county!!

Local Press Recognition

In 2021 Gillentine pins down medal

Ike Gillentine was the lone Pioneer wrestler to reach the state wrestling tournament in Chattanooga in February.

Gillentine, who is like a piece of iron on the wrestling mat, finished 3-3 at the state tournament to earn a sixth-place medal.

“It’s a dream I’ve always wanted to accomplish and I finally did it thanks to two of the best coaches anyone could ask for,” said Gillentine. “They do everything in the world just so I could have this opportunity.”

The two coaches Gillentine refers to are head Pioneer wrestling coach Matt Turner and assistant head coach Robert Piche. Both coaches accompanied Gillentine to Chattanooga and were by his side the entire wrestling season.

Gillentine had to work to finish as the No. 6-ranked 195-pound wrestler in the state. He went 3-3 against the best Tennessee high school wrestlers in his third trip to the state tournament. This year was the first time he came home with a medal.

As a team, Pioneer wrestling finished runner-up in the district and fourth in the region.

Cody Chittum of Cleveland, Tennessee, impresses as prep wrestler at UTC's Southern Scuffle

Gene Henley, Chattanooga Times Free Press, Tenn.
Mon, January 3, 2022, 2:44 AM·3 min read

Jan. 3—This weekend provided a pleasingly surreal moment for Shane Chittum.

As his son Cody was growing up, the two of them would frequent the Southern Scuffle, with the young wrestler dreaming of someday competing in the two-day tournament hosted by the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.

On Saturday evening, Shane looked onto one of the mats at UTC's McKenzie Arena and saw his son jogging around, preparing for a match in the quarterfinals on the opening day of this year's event.

"In 2013, Cody was 9 years old and we came to this event and we were spectators," Shane said Sunday. "It's father and son enjoying the moment, and now we've been on this journey for 10 years."

Cody Chittum's dream came true — and perhaps a year or two earlier than could have been expected by the former Cleveland High School standout, who last year helped the Blue Raiders to TSSAA Class AAA titles in state duals and traditional tournament competition.

Chittum advanced to the Southern Scuffle quarterfinals Saturday before dropping his final two matches, a pretty good run considering he's still considered a high school student. Shane said he petitioned to have Cody compete in the event unattached and wanted to "see where he's at before he goes to college."

Not that Cody minded. He was more disappointed about a high-ankle sprain that caused him to lose his last match Saturday and have to forfeit Sunday.

"Since I was young, I've watched the Scuffle, and it was a cool opportunity to be a high schooler that's part of a college tournament," he said. "You see other people that you've watched their technique, and now you're getting to wrestle against them."

Chittum currently attends the Apex Learning School, an online-only program that helps accelerate the graduation process. Chittum completed his junior year of high school in December and is expected to graduate this summer, which will allow him to start college in the fall semester at the University of Minnesota; he has already committed to continue his wrestling career with the Gophers.

After winning a 120-pound state championship as an eighth grader at McCallie, the Cleveland native spent his freshman season at the Blair Academy in New Jersey, then wound up enrolling at Cleveland in January 2021 and competing for the Blue Raiders, winning all 10 of his matches on his way to the 145-pound state title in AAA. He won each of his four matches in the state tournament by pin.

He's currently the country's top-ranked 145-pounder and one of the top overall wrestlers in the nation, according to multiple publications.

"I grew up right down the street from the (Allan) Jones Wrestling Center, so I had wrestled with those guys a bunch," Cody said of his time at Cleveland High School. "I liked being a part of that family, the family I've grown up with my whole life when we would go to the same Scuffle tournament.

"Even though it was just one year, it was still very special to me."

Just like weekends like this past one are special to his father.

"You've got your sorrows about it, but you also know it's the right thing for him," Shane said. "You realize that when they're young, every day matters and every sporting event is stressful, but as they get older, it's actually easier.

"Yesterday was a sign that he's growing up and officially leaving."

Mocs medal

UTC had two medalists at the tournament, which returned after a year off due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Brayden Palmer, a sophomore who was not among the top eight seeds in his bracket, rallied after losing his first-round match to finish third at 133 pounds. Fourth-seeded Fabian Gutierrez placed sixth at 125, with the sixth-year senior winning way into the semifinals before losing by decision and forfeiting due to injury.

White House Heritage’s Kyle Watts has a wrestling career that’s almost too good to believe.

Four years ago, Watts was completely unaware of the sport.

He said he felt lost and scared nearly every match as a freshman.

He’s now 16-1 on the season and is ranked second in Class A’s 170-pound division, per Pin-TN.com. After finishing fifth in the state tournament last year, Watts is shooting for the top spot at the end of next month.

“I feel like every year I’m just getting better,” he said after a Tuesday match at Nashville Christian. “I’ve been working really hard this year, and I want to make it further in state. I’m just going to keep grinding.”

Wrestling came natural to Watts, and it seemingly hasn’t stopped in doing so.

He opted for basketball as a middle schooler with Heritage, a sport he admitted he wasn’t very good at. Watts then turned his attention to the mats with the high school’s former co-op program at East Robertson.

“The first day at practice I ended up loving it, and I just fell in love with the sport,” he said. “It gave me an adrenaline rush that I’ve never had before.

“I have good length, (and) I’ve developed a lot of strength and skill throughout the years.”

Things started to click in the middle of his first year, and that adrenaline rush carried over when White House Heritage founded its wrestling program the following season.

Watts has qualified for the state tournament every year since. He set a new career best for wins on Tuesday.

“I think the biggest thing has been his movement,” said Heritage wrestling coach Joseph Hill. “He knows his body and can move his body really well. He’s learned several moves that he loves to run, and he’s homed in and really worked on those skills.

“He’s wrestling at the elite level.”

Coming off a December championship in the Bruise Brothers Invitational, Watts quickly knocked off previously undefeated Jamel King at Nashville Christian for his 11th consecutive win.

His lone loss this season came against Wilson Central’s Matthew Hills, who sits as the sixth-best wrestler in Pin-TN’s AA rankings. Watts also holds decisions over large division wrestlers from Dickson County, Gallatin, McGavock and Springfield.

With nine remaining regular season matches to prepare, Watts hopes he can improve upon his 6-4 state tournament record and end his high school career on top.

“I think my chances are a lot better this year,” he said. “I’m trying to at least make first this year. I think I have a better chance.

“I just think wrestling is meant for me. I think it’s the only sport that I can really do.”

CHATTANOOGA – The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's head wrestling coach, Kyle Ruschell, announced the addition of Nicholas Benton to the squad. Benton is a transfer from Northern Illinois and did not compete last season; he has four years of eligibility remaining.

"We are excited for Nicholas to join the squad. He will bring more depth to our upperweights and we look forward to seeing him scrap in a Chattanooga singlet. Nicholas had a lot of success in high school and we are eager to see what he can do on the mat as a Moc."

Benton is four-time letterwinner at Somerset Academy in Miramar, Fla. He holds the record for the most career wins in Florida history with 251. The 197-pounder was the 2020 Somerset Academy Scholar Athlete of the Year, a four-time all-conference selection and first-team all-area selection by the Miami Herald.

Benton and the Mocs return to the mat this weekend as they head to the Virginia Duals in Charlottesville, Va. on Friday, Jan. 14.

More and more big high school wrestling tournaments in the state are having separate girls tournaments, and on Saturday at Science Hill High in Johnson City, Tenn., girls from one local team took home the top prize by just half of a point.

North Henderson High's girls wrestlers competed in the annual Fandetti-Richardson Brawl on Saturday, and when the team scores were announced, they were ecstatic. The North girls edged out Bradley Central by a final of 76.5 to 76. It was North's girls' second tournament win of the season, with their first being the North Knight Invitational.

Just a little update on the next level. Did you see who just took over top spot?




By Taylor Miller-Gregorio | Jan. 11, 2022, 5:56 p.m. (ET)

Photo of Montana DeLawder locking up a cradle against Cameron Guerin. Photo by King University. 

Montana DeLawder (Gettysburg, Pa./King University) has been selected as USA Wrestling Athlete of the Week on Jan. 11, 2022. 

DeLawder, a freshman, was essential in helping the King’s women’s wrestling program secure its fifth NWCA National Duals title in program history. Wrestling at 130 pounds, where she is ranked No. 3 in the country, she went 3-0 at the event. 

In her first bout against No. 7 Tiffin, DeLawder earned a fall over Solana Mottola in just 47 seconds. On day two of the event, she earned starts in the semifinals and finals. In the semis vs. North Central, DeLawder met No. 3 at 123 pounds Asia Nguyen-Smith, who she dominated with a pin in 4:10. 

In the championship dual against McKendree, DeLawder faced multiple-time USA Wrestling age-group World Team member and top-ranked Cameron Guerin, who also finished fourth at the 2020 Olympic Team Trials. DeLawder outlasted the No. 1 wrestler with a 7-4 decision, which King head coach Jason Moorman called “a pivotal match helping our team win the championship.”

Each week USA Wrestling will select an Athlete of the Week based upon performance within wrestling for that week. The selection committee will consider any level of wrestling from youth programs through the senior level.

To nominate a wrestler for this honor please send the athlete's name, wrestling program, weekly accomplishments and career accolades to USA Wrestling Manager of Communications and Social Media Taylor Miller-Gregorio at [email protected]
