"Dylan deserves it, he worked hard for it," Chatham coach Brian Cassera said. "To get to the final he wrestled great."

Vail, now 23-10, was on the defensive from the start. Mulcahy scored an escape for an early point and then put Vail on his back to make it 5-0. Mulcahy then built his lead to 8-0 and 12-0 before gaining the fall.

In the morning semifinal round, Mulcahy had scored a 15-2 major decision over Zach Evans of Madison.

Mulcahy now stands 102-24 in his career, having become the first Chatham wrestler to reach 100  victories with a pin in the district quarterfinal round on Friday.
