David Gannon and Nick Jump earned pins to lead host Sidney to a 46-30 Midstate Athletic Conference dual-meet wrestling victory over Unatego on Thursday.

Gannon needed 3 minutes, 14 seconds to stop Jon Havens at 113 pounds.

Jump pinned Josh Hurlbert in 57 seconds at 170.

Unatego received a 4-3 overtime victory by Nate Wilsey at 160 pounds. Wilsey scored an escape in the extra period to beat Brandon Swislosky, who forced overtime when Wilsey was called for stalling late in regulation.

Oneonta High seniors James Longo and Kirkland Dolan earned No. 1 seeds for the Southern Tier Athletic Conference Championships, which start at 5 p.m. today at Union-Endicott.

Sam Sherrill, a junior who is 24-7, is the third seed at 152 pounds and sophomore Austin Scheer (20-12) is seeded fourth at 160. OHS coach John Nealis said it’s unlikely that Scheer will compete as he’s battling an illness.
