MT. ORAB — With a full lineup for the first time this season, Wilmington’s Rodger O. Borror Middle School wrestling team won the SBAAC Middle School Championship wrestling tournament Saturday at Western Brown High School.
”This was the first time we have been able to wrestle with a full line-up all season due to injury or absences,” Wilmington coach Tim Wiederhold said. “And it all came together as a full team effort. Each and every wrestler on the team did exactly what we asked of them to make this championship happen.”
The young Hurricane posted four individual champions, led by Josiah Puller.
Puller, who completed his junior high career with a 53-0 record, had an 87-second pin to win the 110-pound weight class.
Max McCoy was a 5-1 winner in the 104-pound championship match and completed his season with an unbeaten record.
AJ Kirk made quick work of his rival in the 92 pound title bout with a 26-second pin to be champion.
Ioan Cioca had a pin in 4:16 of the 160-pound weight class finale.
For Clinton-Massie, Ryam Frommling won the 80-pound title with a 4-0 victory.
Fischer Lance posted a 4-2 win to claim the 98-pound championship.
Silas Pytes won the 122-pound class with a 44-second pin in the championship.
The best finishes for Blanchester were second-places by Laylla Sears at 86 pounds, Cory Kidd at 172 pounds and Kane Scott at 245 pounds.
The best finish for East Clinton was a third place by Landen Kaun at 104 pounds.
