Beavercreek, LCA, Xenia send boys wrestlers to state


XENIA — Greene County is sending seven boys wrestlers to the OHSAA state wrestling championships.

Legacy Christian will have five representatives heading to Columbus as the team attempts to defend its Division III team title. The three-time champions had two individuals win district titles as well during the two-day event at Hobart Arena in Troy.

Nathan Attisano had two pins and a technical fall win at 126 pounds before being award the title match because of a forfeit. Dillon Campbell pinned all four of his opponents at 132, including a 53-second win in a rematch from the sectional final, to secure his chance at winning a fourth straight state championship this week.

Getting runner-up finishes for the Knights was Brayden Brown at 150 and Sam Tuck at 215. Eli Campbell won third at 120.

LCA won the D-III team district championship as well by scoring 136.5 points to finish 22 ahead of Miami East, which had won the sectional title ahead of the Knights a week ago.

“The group at the top, I think some are counting us out,” head coach Mike Sizemore said. “I think some other teams think they may win state by 25 points and I don’t think that’s going to happen. It should be a dogfight between us and Milan Edison and Barnesville. We know it’ll all be sorted out on the second day after the semifinals.”

The county’s other two competitors made their way out of the D-I tournament held at Kettering’s Trent Arena.

Jeremy Sibrel of Beavercreek qualified for the second straight year. He made the district final at 106 where he finished as the runner-up.

Xenia’s Ronnie Butler had to take the long route to get to Columbus. He lost in the quarterfinals of the championship rounds, but won three straight matches in the consolation bracket to make it into the third place match and pick up his 100th career victory along the way.

Beavercreek’s C. J. Crawford for D-I, as well as Noah Dickerson, Jarett Daniels and Kyan Hendricks of Greeneview in D-III, all will be alternates for the state tournament hoping to get a last second spot.

The state tournaments will once again be held at the Jerome Schottenstein Center on the campus of The Ohio State University. Day one of competition begins at 1 p.m. on Friday. Day two sessions on Saturday start at 9:30 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. for quarterfinal and semifinal matches. Final consolation bracket matches begin at 9:30 a.m. on Sunday, and the state championship title matches are scheduled to get underway at 5 p.m. Tickets are priced at $18 for each session.
