Mustangs win three individual titles as Conestoga claims team crown

by Billy Loverocket

C. Milton Wright could not overcome Conestoga’s five champions on Saturday at Magruder High School as the Pennsylvania squad outdistanced the Mustangs by 66, 268-202.

C. Milton Wright did push three grapplers to the top of the podium, the Gourgoulianis brothers (Demetrios and Constantinos) and James Riveira.

Constantinos “Staki” Gourgoulianis won the 120lb title with three pins.

Demetrios won his first high school tournament using a 6-3 win in the 106lb finals over Joseph Rezzonico (Broad Run, VA). Constantinos (aka Staki) blew up the 120lb bracket with three pins including 3:16 in the finals over Tommy Duffy (Conestoga). Staki won the trophy for “Most pins in the least amount of time” which also led to him being named the Outstanding Wrestler.

Two-time state champ, Riveira claimed the 126lb crown with a 13-5 major-decision of Mitch Baker (Conestoga). Placing second for the Mustangs were Juan Ortega (132) and Logan Dvorak (182). Carter Goscinski was third at 138, landing in fourth at 195 was Colby Krodel. Andrew Van Syckle (145) and Joel Preston (170) were sixth.

Howard was fifth with 122 points. Claiming titles for the Lions were Shayan Kassiri (152) and Buddy Penguin (220).

Gaithersburg had two guys bring home gold in Navid Ighani (145) and Jaedyn Harris (182). Westlake’s Miles Anderson was the 113lb champ. Good Counsel’s Brandon Roberts won the heavyweight title bout 3-1 in overtime over Magruder’s Caleb Taylor.
