It was little more than a beauty contest, but it was a beauty of a contest. Tempe Corona del Sol edged Mesa Red Mountain 190-188.5 Saturday in the 5A-I team wrestling standings that went down to the final match.

The Aztecs’ Trevor Stapp won the heavyweight final by pinning Mesa Westwood’s Cameron Teller.

If Stapp had won by anything but a pin, Red Mountain would have won by half a point.

Technically, the team standings for the 5A state individual championships were only for seeding purposes for next week.

You’d have never guessed from the manner of Red Mountain and Corona coaches late Saturday afternoon at Jobing.com Arena in Glendale.

The 5A team titles will be determined this week in a dual-match tournament at Hamilton High School in Chandler. But to the top two 5A-I schools, it still mattered who came in first.

“It’s hard to think of this not being for the state tournament,” Corona coach Dave Vibber said. “For anyone whose been around wrestling for a long time, this is important.”

Corona had two champions. Luke Macchiaroli won at 215 pounds, beating defending 215-pound state champ Christian Long of Mesa Dobson, 7-3, in a much anticipated match. Red Mountain also had two champions in Seth Pickett (140) and Taylor Sare (160) to upstage its Mesa sister schools.

Sare's title came after missing the second half of the 2006-2007 season for academic reasons. He sat in the stands last year at Jobing.com Arena and watched the finals with tears in his eyes.

On Saturday, Sare pinned his way to the finals then scored a 16-4 major decision over Mesa's Mayk Ordaz.

Phoenix Desert Vista had the most champs of any 5A-I team with three: freshman Sage Ornelas, who won at 103; Colton Kiernan (171); and Phil Donofrio (189).

Other East Valley champions included Scottsdale Desert Mountain’s Shane McGough (112), who completed an outstanding and dominant season with a major decision over Mesa's Efren Damian. Mesa High’s Victor Montano (119) and Gilbert Highland’s Blake Mabry (130) also took titles for their traditionally strong programs.

Mabry's grandfather died Oct. 22, 2006 and Mabry said he dedicated the season to him.
