Lower Cape May’s other region qualifier, 145-pounder Ty Altieri, was bumped from the tournament with a 6-4 loss to Kevin Keppler of Washington Township.

Ocean City’s Gallagher won a 6-3 result over Clearview’s Joe Sindoni at 170, with Johnson scoring a 6-4 decision over Cylas Dorety of Woodstown. Ocean City’s Cliff Owens also qualified for regions but lost an 18-9 major decision to Cory Jacobs of Clayton.
