    Hall Takes 2nd at Top Gun

    January 14, 2017

    Alliance, OH- Northeast Ohio is where the deepest pool of wrestling talent resides in the state, and each year the Redskins dip their toes in to get a dose of competition that is typically reserved for the post season tournament run.   The Alliance Top Gun Tournament is a two day tournament consisting of 47 Teams from predominately the northeast corner of the state as well as a few others from Pennsylvania and West Virginia.  This year featured over 70 Wrestlers with State Tournament experience. 

    After day one, the Skins were sitting in 15th place with 11 of 14 Wrestlers winning at least one match, and six others advancing to the second day.  Luke Beach, Jayden Hefner, Brad Beemer, Tyler Copeland, and Evan Kaeck all advance in the consolation bracket, while Landon Hall remained alive in the Championship bracket.  Beemer and Kaeck exited the first round of day two, while Beach and Hefner bowed out in their match to place.  Copeland advanced to the consolation semifinals, but was forced to injury default in a match he was winning with just a few seconds remaining.  He was held out of his finals match and placed 6th.

    Hall, a three-time State Qualifier and two-time placer, won his semi-final bout and advanced to the Championship match seeking to win his first Top Gun title.  Last year he finished 4th at 195lbs. Hall led the entire match before giving up a late takedown and losing 6-5 to Ripley, West Virginia’s BJ Haynes.
