Gomez leads off Cadet finals with double title!

It only took Austin Gomez one period to post an 11-0 technical fall over Ben Freeman of Michigan in the 113-pound final.

DOUBLE CADET NATIONAL CHAMPION!

Dylan Duncan added another title for Illinois at 120 with a 10-4 victory over two-time New York champion Yianni Diakomihalis.

The state champion picked up a pair of two-point exposures in the first period, one off a high crotch in the first minute and the second on a cradle just before the break for a 4-0 lead.

He added another tip in the second period - one that was changed to two points each by a Diakomihalis challenge - and another Diakomihalis takedown with a minute left made it 6-4. Duncan then hit a double, scoring a pair of exposures on kickovers, for the final margin.

Diakomihalis had been 99-0 over his previous two high school seasons. Duncan beat a pair of two-time New York state champions on his way to the title. The other was Vito Arujau, yesterday in a 13-5 decision.

It only took Nick Lee of Indiana 76 seconds to record an 11-0 technical fall over Jaime Hernandez in the final at 132. Lee is huge. It looked like he had 10 pounds on him easily. Maybe more.

Three Cadet freestyle champions for Indiana...wow.

UPDATE: Lee was voted OW.

Shayne Oster also lost by technical fall in the first period, 10-0 to Ethan Karsten of Missouri at 138. Karsten became another double champion.

The Bey-Breske rematch at 170 awaits.

Kamal Bey almost came all the way back to win the 170-pound final, but lost 9-6 to Beau Breske.

Breske took a 6-0 lead in the first minute on a takedown and two gut wrenches, but Bey rethrew Breske to his back for four points, and with the score 7-4, he scored another takedown to make it 7-6 at the break.

Bey initiated most of the action in the second period, nearly tying the match on what looked like a pushout with 27 seconds left, but couldn't penetrate enough to finish. Breske scored off his shot at the end for the 9-6 final.

Breske became a Cadet Triple Crown winner. Great match.
