Regional wrestling results

Westview senior wrestler Michael Yankosky upended the two top seeds in his bracket to win the 285-pound flight championship at Saturday’s Goshen Regional meet.

After pinning opening-round foe Jose Montanez of Goshen in just 21 seconds, Yankosky took on Central Noble’s Justin Lee, the winner of the Westview sectional a week earlier. The Warrior pinned Lee in 2:35 to advance to the finals.

Awaiting Yankosky in the decisive bout was Braxton Amos of Angola, who had beaten the Warrior in the semifinals of the sectional. In a nail-biting finale, Yankosky edged the Hornet, 1-0 to claim the title.

The regional crown qualified Yankosky for this Saturday’s IHSAA semi-state tournament to be held at the Allen County Memorial Coliseum in Fort Wayne. It is the first trip to the semi-state for the Warrior. He finished fifth at last year’s regional, one place shy of advancing.

Yankosky will take a 30-9 record into his semi-state opener against Carroll junior Ammon Carr (30-3). A victory over Carr, followed by a win in the quarterfinals over either Dax Hiestand (18-4) of Yorktown or Owen Perkins (28-3) of Oak Hill would earn the Westview grappler a berth in the 2014 state finals to take place February 21-22 in Indianapolis.

Four other LaGrange County matmen garnered semi-state berths with their efforts at the regional. Heading up that list is Lakeland senior Lukas Long, who made it to the finals of the 106-pound bracket before falling to Fairfield rival Blake Glogouski, 11-3.

Prairie Heights junior Kade Gerbers placed third in the 182-pound group thanks to a pin of Angola’s Chris Clute in the consolation match. Advancing with fourth-place finishes in their flights were Prairie Heights sophomore Doug Levitz (145 pounds) and Lakeland junior Brock Bergman (285).

Long (33-2) faces Shane Garretson (25-11) of Peru in the first round of the semi-state. Gerbers meets Grant Gough (31-3) of Winchester, Levitz drew Evan Loe (42-2) of Peru and Bergman tangles with Bryce Hagar (35-1) of Leo.

Elkhart Memorial shaded East Noble, 124-121 for the regional team championship. Goshen was third with 92 points.
