SYRACUSE - On Saturday, the Sherburne-Earlville Marauders had five wrestlers qualify for the Section III, Division II wrestling championships. Only one wrestler moved on to states as Landon Andrade finished third and continues to be a strong contender in his final season.

The Marauders haven’t had a states champion since Jack Buell in 2016, so they are hopeful to see Andrade achieve the same accomplishment.

Andrade finished 28-3 in the regular season and went 4-1 at Sectionals. He quickly pinned Dolgeville’s Carter Madison in 50 seconds before taking down Phoenix’s Landon Crandall in 2:10. He ended up losing the semi-finals match to Adriondack’s Colin White in 2:21. He got back on track fast with a :30 pin over Lowville’s Charles VonWal and won his last match due to an injury default.

Teammate Brier Cox went 2-2 in the same respective weight class. He pinned down Morrisville-Eaton’s Cale Morland in 3:13 before losing in the Quarterfinals. Cox picked himself up to win on a 1:25 pin over Lowville’s Ryan Larkins before dropping his final match to Charles VonWal in 3:53.

In the 118 weight class, Aiden Shreve was the 13th seed for the Marauders and finished at an even 2-2 record on the day. He lost his first match in a 1:11 fall to Camden’s Carson Mantelli, but picked up the next two wins. He dropped the third consolation match to Hannibal’s Zenon Derocha in a tough 3:24 pin.

Richie Fuller and Cody Clarkson both competed in the 215 weight class, where they wrestled each other in the first match of the day. Fuller defeated Clarkson in a 3-2 decision.

Clarkson would then get a bye before winning the next two matches. He lost in a tie-breaker while taking fifth place on a forfeit. On the other hand, Fuller dropped his next two matches and missed placement.

Good luck to Landon Andrade in the States, make S-E proud.
