LAFAYETTE — The Sulphur High School wrestling team wrapped up its first district championship in 16 years on Wednesday with a 62-15 duel win over Acadiana on the road.

The Tors dominated the district this year, beating Sam Houston, Southside, Lafayette, Comeaux, and Acadiana by a combined score of 334-54.

“It has been a while,” Sulphur head coach Jean Paul Duhon said. “The kids worked hard this year. 

“We have had opportunities in the years past but just couldn’t finish it.”

Against the Rams, Adam Fontenot (106, 15-5), Gavin Theriot (120, 24-16), Trent Trouth (132, 28-11), Hunter Gustin (160, 31-5) and Luke Vice (170, 21-7) won their matches by pin in the first period. 

Last Thursday at home against Comeaux, junior Caleb Harris (19-8) upset the No. 1 Division I 285-pound wrestler in the state, pinning Donald Paul (37-1) in 1 minute, 9 seconds. 

At 126-pounds, junior Kyle Thibodeaux (38-13) avenged a pair of losses to Comeaux’s Reed Bergeron with a 7-4 win.

“It is usually out of us and Comeaux,” Duhon said. “They are 1 and we are 2 (usually), and a couple of years back we tied and they beat us on a tiebreaker. 

“Our kids wrestled really good against them (Comeaux) last Thursday. We have had some good matches and good wins and hopefully, that will help us out going into state.”
