  • In an event where the best of the best in Section 5 are on display, it can be difficult to spot the brightest star. While 30 champions were crowned in 15 weight classes split between two divisions, Midlakes’ Sean Peacock put on a show that was worthy of a place all his own.
    Peacock tore through Sunday’s championship round of the Super Sectionals at the State University at Brockport, winning three of his four matches by pin, and capping it off with a 15-0 tech fall victory over Addison’s Dylan Deuel to become the Division II champion at 120 pounds.
    The top seed in the bracket, Peacock earned a bye in the first round before facing David Manketlow of Lyons. Peacock needed just a minute, 53 seconds to advance with his first pin of the day. Peacock’s performance improved the next two rounds, as he defeated Alexander’s Nick Gaiser by pin in just 1:15. In the semifinals, he took out Holley’s Allen White in just 1:07 to set up the final against Deuel.
    Peacock now advances to the state tournament looking to return home with a second straight title.
    His performance was the highlight for a Midlakes squad that took the overall team title in Division II with 163 points. Warsaw came in second with 155.5, followed by Holley (115.5), Pal-Mac (108), Addison (102.5) and Newark (77).
    Hammond Raes (99 pounds), Jason Charlette (106) and Tyler Smith (195) each earned second-place finishes for the Screaming Eagles. Raes battled in one of the day’s closest matches, as he fell to East Rochester’s Hunter O’Lena, 1-0. Ralph Mateo (113) and Collin Fox (170) both took third for Midlakes in their respective weight classes.
    Taylor Jones represented Pal-Mac at the top of the podium as he took first place at 138 pounds. Adam West (106) and Max Lloyd (152) both took third place for the Red Raiders.
