Brothers Aaron Dow (182) and Noah Dow (152) both did it.
“I usually pull for both of us to win,” said senior Aaron Dow, who leads the Lions in wins (23) and pins (15). “My brother is a freshman, so he’s just getting into it, so it’s really cool that we both won and both got pins.”
Dow qualified for the state meet last year at 170 when he finished 33-9 and he was wearing Dulaney’s wrestling chain proudly around his neck after his pin.
“The wrestling chain goes to the guy that gets the most recent pin,” he said. “If you get a bunch of pins in a row, it gets everybody going and ready to wrestle.”
Senior Joe Newland also got to wear the chain, after he earned a pin (3:51) for Dulaney at 126.
“He’s been hitting a chin lip or a headlock and he’s been doing real nice for us,” Asher said.
The only matches that didn’t result in a pin or forfeit came at 120 and 132.
Dunbar’s Camerin Deville (120) defeated freshman Myrddin Bramucci, 18-4, and Jalen Jones defeated Destiny Benjamin at 132.
“Destiny Benjamin is our girls state champion and she’s probably 8-12 this year, Asher said. “She beat two guys last week from Delaware. She’s wrestling real well and a lot of the coaches know her and they know that she is tough. She is one of the toughest on the team.”
