The Section Three title had already been decided, but there's always something special about going undefeated.

Ryan Kelliher earned a 37-second pin in the final match of the night Wednesday, lifting the Northern Lebanon wrestling team to a dramatic 36-35 victory over Columbia. The win ends the Vikings' league portion of their schedule 6-0 and improved them to 8-1 overall with the victory.

NL trailed 23-6 before reeling off four straight pins by Caleb Blatt (1:07), Quinn Blatt (1:37), Joey Emborsky (5:42) and Holden Zeigler (1:29) to take a 30-23 lead. Columbia answered with two pins to make it 35-30, setting the stage for Kelliher's dramatic win at 170 pounds.

Derek DiAngelis also had a pin in 1:38 in the second match of the night at 195 before the Tide won the next five matches to build up their 17-point lead.
