Gibbons wins Region 4-1A wrestling title

At the time, Chris Williams had no idea how important his pin at 195 pounds would be in Cardinal Gibbons winning the Region 4-1A wrestling title on Saturday.

As it turned out, it meant everything.

Williams pinned Jordan Moltimer in 47 seconds to help Gibbons edge Somerset 242-240 for the regional championship at Cardinal Gibbons High in Fort Lauderdale.

“I just wrestled smart,” said Williams, who also won his first regional title. “I didn’t give up anything that help me win.

It was close. I just treated by opponent like a regular match and it makes me feel good that I helped the team win a regional title.”

Roundin g out the top five, Key West was third with 149 points, American Heritage-Delray was fourth (113), while Coral Springs Charter was fifth (91).

Mater Lakes was the top team from Miami-Dade finishing sixth with 88.5 points.

Micheal Lopouchanski gave Gibbons the boost it needed heading into Williams’ match. He defeated Raul Gierbolini of Somerset 3-1 at 182 points.

One of the big surprises on the day came in the heavyweight final when Adam Fox (Gibbons) was pinned by Brandon Bodden of Miami Jackson in 2:54.

Fortunately for Fox, Gibbons had already locked up the team title.

Overall, Somerset won four individual championships, while Gibbons won three.

The top four wrestlers in each weight class advanced to the state tournament next week in Kissimmee.

FOOTBALL

As much of a hotbed for high school football talent as Miami-Dade, Broward and even Palm Beach counties have been through the years, some of it still slips through the cracks and many kids wind up going unnoticed.

The Orange Bowl Committee decided to do something about it this year and thus was born the Orange Bowl High School Football Showcase that was held Saturday morning at Nova Southeastern University.

More than 400 high school athletes from the tri-county area and 43 small colleges from around the country converged in Davie for the six-hour event that began early in the morning. Players were put through numerous drills before eventually participating in seven-on-seven drills.
