Red Wolves' wrestlers celebrate victory

Cedarcrest and the Red Wolves' wrestling team hosted Skyline

last week and walked away with their first team victory in over a year by

defeating the Spartans 56 - 18. The win solidified the confidence of a

young team that had, in the past, borne the brunt of many ego-bruising matches.

In the 103-pound class, freshman Aaron Pedeferri wasted no time

dominating his opponent, pinning him in 44 seconds. Teammate Darrin

DeBoer, also a freshman, defeated Ricky Chun, 9-0.

In the 119-pound class, senior Eric Pedeferri easily pinned the

Spartans' Justin Eballr at the 1:09 mark of the first round. Skyline's Kevin

Burton defeated Alan Shults by pin 43 seconds into the match in the

125-pound class while fellow Spartan S. Kevern defeated Cedarcrest's

Andrew Clausen, 11-4.

But the Red Wolves jumped right back in it in the 135-pound match

as veteran Kris Cautrell pinned Van Vu at the 4:54 mark of the third

round. Then, Adam Speir pinned Skyline's Jamie Birell at the 1:29 mark of

the first round. But the pin fest wasn't over as Tony Stadman, Dan Amador

and Rob Westerman all recorded pins over their Skyline opponents. In

the171-pound class, Chris Nasell continued racking up points for the Red

Wolves as he defeated Bryan Kelly, 18-10. In the 189-pound class, Skyline's

Jake Goetz defeated James Minchew, 10-8.

Rounding out the 215- and 275-pound classes, Cole Birk of

Cedarcrest won by forfeit, and Skyline's Ted Pellegrini pinned Ben Schlechty in

48 seconds.
