Teasdale debut a success, or was it?

The debut of Gavin Teasdale could be termed a success by the fans, wrestlers and coaches of Jefferson-Morgan's wrestling team. Whether the officials who run the Eastern Area Tournament at Gateway High School think so, is, well, anyone's guess.
The results sent to the media showed that Teasdale, the most heralded wrestler to emerge from J-M since you know who, had lost by a 25-8 technical fall to Job Chishko of Penn Trafford in the 106-pound finals. If the name sounds familiar, Chishko is the brother of Solomon Chishko, who won two state titles at Canon-McMillan.
A flurry of phone calls determined that the Eastern Area Tournament scorekeepers are not as good as the media guide says they are. They also misspelled Chishko's name.
Since there was no activity on Twitter proclaiming Teasdale's loss - and we're pretty sure there would have been - it was reasonable to assume a mistake had been made.
Anyway, for posterity's sake, it should be noted that Teasdale won four bouts, two by fall and two others by technical fall. Oh, and maybe the most mysterious part of the process was that Teasdale was seeded second behind . . . yep, Chishko.
