DAYTONA BEACH - Fla. - Illinois dominated Pennsylvania 60-18 in the final of the 2013 Cadet National Greco-Roman Duals, winning 14 of the 17 bouts to claim the title.

Illinois jumped out to an early 12-0 lead behind light weight wins from Louie Hayes (by decision) at 88 lbs., Nolan Baker (by pin) at 94 lbs. and Jimmy Pawleski (by technical fall) at 100 lbs.

Cadet World Team member Spener Lee of Pennsylvania pinned Austin O'Connor in 3:52 at 106 lbs. to shorten Team Illinois's lead to 12-5. That was as close as Pennsylvania would get as defending champion Illinois won the next nine bouts to seal the win.

Picking up wins by pin for Illinois were Nolan Baker (94 lbs.), Larry Early (145 lbs.), Dru Worker (170 lbs.) and Romeo McNight (220 lbs.) while Gabe Townsell (120 lbs.), Jonathon Doyle (126 lbs.), Isaiah White (138 lbs.), Joey Gunther (152 lbs.), Kamal Bey (160 lbs.) and Allen Stallings (195 lbs.) all won by technical fall.

Also picking up wins for Illinois were Andrew McFall (113 lbs.) and Riley Beard (132 lbs.).

Drew Phillips of Pennsylvania defeated Andrew Marsden (pin 2:08) at 182 lbs. and Pennsylvania's Andrew Dunn picked up a 10-2 technical fall over Adam Lempke-Bell at 285 lbs. for the Keystone State's other victories.

Illinois and Pennsylvania met in the final after both competing in Pool B, in which Illinois defeated Pennsylvania 45-31 in the first place match.

The win came a week after the Illinois schoolboy squad was upset by Pennsylvania in the final match of the 2013 Schoolboy National Greco-Roman Duals.

Utah placed third after beating Georgia 41-34.

An exciting fifth place match saw New Jersey win on criteria over Maryland after the teams competed to a 37-37 draw. After a back and forth dual, the teams found themselves tied 32-32 after 15 bouts. Michael Smith came up big for Maryland, pinning DeMarco Woody in 0:34 to open up a five point lead in the team score. New Jersey's Davontae Randall came right back with a pin of his own over Garrett Wallace in 1:18 to score five clutch team points and bring the score to 37-37 before New Jersey was awarded the victory.

Washington defeated Pennsylvania's Blue squad 46-36 to place seventh.
