take down, rode tough and got out of position once, but battled back and
dominated the match and got the pin," said Pirate Assistant Coach Wes Hanson.
In the championship match, Cody faced the fourth ranked wrestler in Class AA at
132 pounds, Riley Drew of Hutchinson. "Cody was focused and wrestled like
it," said Coach Hanson. "He got the first takedown again and was very physical
and dominated in all aspects and when he got the turn, I believe he was leading
10-1, so he was dominating early in the second period before picking up the
fall. It was a very impressive win for Cody and the Pirates."
