Mount Greylock wrestler Devin Pelletier was wrestling for fifth place in the New England Championships Saturday night, but because of an injury default, earned the honor to be called one of the top five wrestlers in New England in his weight class.
Pelletier was scheduled to wrestler Austin Cooley of Somers, Conn., in the fifth-place match at 160 pounds. Cooley beat Pelletier 12-0 in the quarterfinals, dropping the Mountie wrestler into the consolations.
Pelletier had won his first two bouts, and then after losing to Cooley, beat Tyler Burgess of Mount Anthony 4-2. But Pelletier dropped a 6-4 decision to Kameron Doucette of Skowhegan, Maine in the consolation semifinals.
