Wrestling: Urbana, Graham advance in state duals


The Urbana High School wrestling had to live up to their nickname to advance past the first two rounds of the Division II Ohio High School Athletic Association state team tournament Wednesday night.

The Hillclimbers fell into an early 27-9 hole against Kenton Ridge with a spot in the regional semis on the line, then started the slow climb back up the hill.

The Cougars, who survived a 36-30 scare from Northwestern in the first round, dropped the first two matches before running off six straight wins to take the lead.

Tyler Armstrong got the run started with a pin at 120. Seth Cochran (138) also recorded a pin and Preston Bowshier (145) won by forfeit. The Cougars also got decisions from Elijah Cochran (126), Ben Sellars (132) and Tyler Sowards (152) before Urbana began their run.

Urbana won the final six matches, taking advantage of three forfeits to go with pins by Steven Murray (160), Zack Michael (220) and Keith Gale (285).

The Cougars won the first seven matches against Northwestern before holding on for the win.

Graham rolls: The Falcons, the top seed in Division II, lost just two matches in overwhelming visiting Shawnee and Tipp City.

Graham, which will host the regional semis and finals on Wednesday, beat Shawnee 76-6 and Tipp City 68-6.

The Falcons, the defending state champs, will open the regional semis against Urbana.

Versailles 40, Mechanicsburg 34: In Division III, Versailles used a late push in the upper weights to defeat the Indians.

The two teams swapped the first two matches before host Mechanicsburg managed to build a 28-18 lead with five matches left.

Versailles, the defending regional champ, ran off three pins and a major decision, clinching the win on Grant Keller’s pin at 220.

The Indians took the 10-point lead behind pins from Kaleb Romero (138) and Austin Reese (160), a major decision by Joe Ziegler and a decision by Logan Hartman.

Mechanicsburg opened the night with a 72-9 win over Lehman.

Brookville 42, Greeneview 28: After opening the night with a narrow 40-36 decision over Tri County North, the Rams fell to Brookville in the finale.

The Rams took a 25-12 lead against the Blue Devils after Logan Lacure’s 19-5 win at 145, but forfeited four of the next five weight classes to allow Brookville to take the lead and seal the win.

Greeneview won four of the five matches wrestled against Lehman, taking advantage of three North forfeits while giving Lehman five wins by forfeit.

Fairborn 48, Springfield 33: Fairborn took advantage of three Springfield forfeits to eliminate the Wildcats in the first round of the D-I tournament.

The Wildcats got pins from Cody Stone (113), Trevor Scott (152), Donnie Willis (160), Adam Green (170) and Devin Nye (285).

Noah Miller (138) recorded the other win for the Wildcats, claiming a 6-3 decision. Springfield won seven of the 11 head-to-head matches.
