Baylor extended its wrestling win streak over McCallie to nine years Monday, posting a 33-19 victory at the Red Raiders' Duke Arena.

The victory apparently earned them the same half of the Division II bracket at this weekend's state duals with Christian Brothers, currently the state's top-ranked team. McCallie will be in the half with Father Ryan, which is ranked No. 3 in the latest coaches poll. The duals are scheduled for Friday and Saturday at the Williamson County Agricultural Expo in Franklin.

Baylor winners included Michael Murphy (106), Caleb Powell (120), Brandon Brunner (138), Cole Holloway (145), Blake Sutherland (152), Bryson Popp (160), Ryan Parker (170), Emory Norred (195) and Will Thomas (285). Picking up McCallie victories were James Westbrook (113), Alex Elsea (126), Adam Connell (132), Nathan Hoodenpyle (182) and Casey Cook (220).
