NEWTON, Iowa ? The south has risen again in wrestling as North Carolina State?s Darrion Caldwell and Alabama?s Cuthbertson twins, Kyle and Chase, were named the best pinners in college and high school wrestling.

Caldwell, who recently became NC State?s first All-American with a fifth-place finish in this year?s NCAA tournament at 149 pounds, won the Schalles Award for being college wrestling?s best pinner.

The Cuthbertson twins, the last of six brothers who won 20 Alabama state championships overall, were named winners of the Junior Schalles Award as this country?s best high school pinners.

Both the Schalles and Junior Schalles Awards have been presented annually since 1999 by W.I.N. magazine and the AAU and named after Wade Schalles, who set a college record with 109 pins at Clarion (Pa.) where he also won two NCAA championships in 1972 and 1973.
