Kodiak’s Pearson Brodie continued his sizzling start to his wrestling season.

The senior battled his way to the 140-pound title at the Lancer Smith Memorial Tournament at Palmer High School on Saturday.

Brodie defeated Valdez’s Mike Ace 4-2 in the finals.

He pinned Valdez’s Christian Delay and Sitka’s Max Hanson to reach the finals and is now 9-0 after the first two weeks of the season.

As a team, Kodiak placed ninth with 89 points. Service won with 199.5 points. Kodiak was third among Region III teams. Colony placed fourth, while Wasilla was fifth. A total of 25 teams were represented in the tournament.

“Almost every match was a real dogfight, with some of our kids losing heartbreakers when ahead,” Kodiak coach Pat Costello wrote in an e-mail.

Eddy Burris placed fourth at 112 pounds with a 5-2 record. The sophomore fell to Valdez’s Keifer Groeneveld in the third/fourth-place match.

Francis Llorente (119) and Alex Lounsbury (140) placed sixth with 3-3 records. Llorente was pinned in the first round by Valdez’s Austin Rake in the fifth/sixth-place match, while Lounsbury was pinned in the final round by Hanson.
