Battling against a Merchant Marine opponent in the final, Cerminara scored a pin in the third overtime period, giving the Mules their first individual champion since 2009 and breaking the school record for pins in a season.
Sophomores Austin Sherman (133) and Dylan Schwartz (165) each placed third in their brackets, earning their first-ever CC medals.
