WATERFORD - Waterford Kettering and Hartland may be in the same conference, but they’re not in the same league. The Eagles, ranked No. 3 in the state and with a strong wrestling tradition which reaches back some two decades, manhandled the Captains in a 71-3 triumph Wednesday at Kettering.

Kettering, though, bounced back with a 38-27 triumph over Salem, who had lost to Westland John Glenn. Hartland wound up beating John Glenn 49-22.

The Captains won the KLAA North with a 5-0 record, and Hartland won the KLAA West with a 5-0 record. That was the only similarity between the two teams as Hartland, with district, league and regional titles galore over the years, quickly asserted its authority.

“We’re getting close (to peaking),” said Hartland coach Todd Cheney. “The last few weeks we’ve been wrestling really, really well.”

Indeed, Hartland, with a veteran lineup full of wrestlers with state meet experience, was relentless against the Captains. The Eagles won 13 of 14 matches with eight coming by fall and two by major decision.

Only Kettering 130-pounder Corey Conrad was able to win for the Captains, and that was only by a 3-2 margin over Hayden Culver.

Tim Hagelin, perhaps Kettering’s best wrestler, trailed all-stater Sage Castillo 7-3 in their 152-pound match before tying the score at 7-7 and sending the match into overtime. But Hagelin ran out of steam and Castillo quickly ended it with a takedown for a 9-7 triumph.

The Eagles were in a take-no-prisoners mode. “They’re scoring points and that’s fun to watch,” said Cheney.

Hartland’s only season loss was to Novi Detroit Catholic Central as the Eagles own a 26-1 record.

Kettering topped Salem with a solid effort from its middle weights. Corey Contrad scored a technical fall over Daniel McGhee at 130 pounds, and Allen Martin (135), Anthony Gonzalez (140), John Skarritt (145), Timmy Hagelin (152), Christian Rush (160) and Alex Dorsey (171) followed with victories to help secure the triumph for the Captains.
