Kein wins 149 at king’s tourney
Kein, who won at 141 a sophomore and 149 last winter, successfully defended his title at the higher weight class, and he did it in dramatic fashion, scoring a 4-2 overtime decision against the top-seeded wrestler from Wilkes in the final. Kein was seeded second, and his opponent was a national qualifier last year.
Kein opened the tournament in impressive fashion, capturing his first two bouts by technical fall. In the semifinals, he scored a 10-8 decision against the third seed.
Kein (right) has six tournament titles for his career.
Senior Matt Horn also made a splash at the first tournament of the year, placing third at 197. He dropped his first bout, a one-point decision to an unseeded wrestler who went on to finish second in the bracket, but came back to win five bouts in the consolation bracket.
