Former Graham High School standout Bo Jordan’s quest for a national title will continue into his senior year.

The Ohio State junior, dropped a 5-2 decision to Penn State’s Mark Hall in the 174-pound finals Saturday night at the Scott Trade Center in St. Louis.

After a scoreless first period, Hall recorded an escape and takedown in the second period for a 3-0 lead, but Jordan cut the deficit to 3-2 in the third period.

Jordan recorded the escape and pressured Hall with continual attacks, drawing a stalling warning on the Nittany Lion freshman.

Hall clinched with a takedown with five seconds left, converting a re-shot after a Jordan attack.

Jordan had defeated Hall 6-4 in sudden victory for his first Big Ten title.

Hall’s title was one of five for Penn State, which won the team title. Ohio State finished second.

Micah Jordan also earned All-American honors for Ohio State, finishing fourth at 149 after battling back through the consolation bracket.

Isaac Jordan closed out his career at Wisconsin as a four-time All-American, finishing fourth at 165.

With all three Jordan’s earning All-American honors, the family total grew to 14.

Isaac is the first four-time All-American in the Jordan family. His father, Jim, was a three-time All-American and won titles in 1985 and 1986 at Wisconsin. Isaac’s brother, Ben, was an All-American in 2012

Bo is now a three-time All-American while Micah earned his first and father Jeff – the head coach at Graham – was a two-timer, finishing fourth in 1987 and 88 for Wisconsin.

Former Miami Valley School state champ Matthew Kolodzik was seventh at 141 for Princeton.
