Jasmine Robinson left her mark on Allen in quite a few ways

The senior not only won her fourth straight individual title, but she helped the Lady Eagles win their fourth straight championship on Saturday as the Class 6A UIL Championships wrapped up.

Allen finished with 123 points, one point less than the next two trophy teams had combined.

The Lady Eagles had championships from Grace Romans (107), Kailin Sebert (120) and Robinson (165).

She is only the fourth UIL wrestler to win four straight titles when the sport became recognized in the 1998-1999 school year.

Robinson finished the year 43-0 and pinned all four of her foes at state. She finished her career with only one loss in high school — a 133-1 mark and four straight championships.

Allen now has two of the four four-time champions in UIL champions as Alex Liles, who won titles from 2015 to 2018.

Robinson had pins in 1:31, 1:00, 1:27 and 42 seconds — the latter in the finals. 

Romans took home first place after finishing third on her first trip to state. The sophomore beat Arianna Beltran of Cypress Ranch, 2-0, in the finals. In the semifinals, she beat No. 2-ranked Shobhana Spielman of San Antonio Ronald Reagan by a pin in 2:49.

“Last year I came super close but sadly I lost but this year I got redemption,” said Romans, who was 44-6 this season. 

Freshman Kailin Sebert went 44-1 this season and ended with a 9-3 decision over Brooke McCurley of Round Rock. Like Romans, she beat the No. 2-seed in the semifinals — a 5-1 win over Mariah Smith of Cypress Ranch. 

“It means a lot especially helping my teams win this (title),” Sebert said. “Honestly, I was just hoping to place. I did not expect this. But it was the hours and hours of work. My teammates helped me and my coaches helped me.”

Her only loss this year was to Mariah Dillard of Azle, who was the 5A 120-pound champion. 

Allen had two other all-state wrestlers: Esther Peters (235) and Matti Givens (100). 

Peters took third and saw her perfect season end in the semifinals. She lost by a pin against Erica Cobos of El Paso Americas in a matchup of No. 1 vs. No. 2. 

Peters, No. 1, then won her next two by falls and was 47-1 on the season. 

Givens lost her first match, a 4-3 loss to Christine Tran of Jersey Village. Givens won three in a row to secure a medal but lost to Jubilee Rendon of El Paso Franklin, who was a state champion last year, in the consolation semifinals. 

In the fifth-place match, Givens got revenge against Tran, winning 7-5 in overtime.

Cavaliers take 2nd 

Woodlands College Park took second with 68 points in a field that featured 98 teams.  

Anna Vogt’s chance to repeat as a state champion ended with a loss in the finals. 

The junior, ranked No. 1 heading into state, improved to 40-0 after Saturday morning’s semifinals. She beat No. 3-ranked Northwest Nelson’s Marli Denmark by a pin. Before that, Vogt beat No. 4-ranked Emilee Zeringue of Northwest Eaton in the quarterfinals.

In the finals, Eaton saw her 53-match winning streak end with a loss to Arlington Martin’s Camille Rainey by an 8-5 decision. 

The De La Cruz sisters both were all-staters for College Park.

No. 4-ranked Vanessa De La Cruz made the finals but lost to No. 1-ranked Riley Rayome of The Woodlands by a 1-0 decision. It was a rematch from the District…
