The Covington News - - SPORTS - BRYAN FAZIO bfazio@cov­

Al­covy wrestling wel­comed New­ton and East­side to its gym Tues­day by win­ning the New­ton Cup.

The Tigers beat New­ton 49-23, fol­lowed by a 45-33 vic­tory over Score At­lanta’s No. six­thranked Ea­gles.

Af­ter los­ing to New­ton at 106 pounds, Al­covy’s Jerry Pike and Hunter Smith picked up pins in 113 and 120, re­spec­tively.

The Tigers picked up five more pins in their seven wins, in­clud­ing in 182 by Ka­mari Wil­liams and 285 by Ryan Adams.

Wil­liams and Adams were just two of Al­covy’s wrestlers to get two pins on the day, later when the Tigers beat East­side.

Trail­ing, Al­covy needed key matches against the Ea­gles, to pull out the New­ton Cup vic­tory.

Tay­lor Jenk­ins picked up the pin in the 145-pound clas­si­fi­ca­tion, along with a 10-6 win by Par­fait Fond­seyuf in 182-pounds and Nick Lang­ford had the pin in 220 pounds.

Along with Wil­liams and Adams, Pike, Jake Hen­drix and Cole Pat­ter­son also were un­beaten in two matches for Al­covy, which also had Michael Thur­man win his one and only match.
