Four wrestlers remain at State

COLUMBUS — Through the Championship bracket quarterfinals and Consolation bracket second round, four Greene County area high school wrestlers remain in contention for a shot at at least a podium finish to their seasons, at the OHSAA state individual wrestling championships at the Schottenstein Center on the Ohio State University campus.

Three-time state champion Tommy Hoskins, now of Legacy Christian Academy, won his Championship second-round match to advance to Saturday’s semifinals in the Division III 126-pound weight class. Greeneview’s Devan Hendricks also won his second-round match in the same weight category, setting up the possibility that the two area wrestlers could potentially meet in the state title match on Saturday night. Greeneview’s Clint Brown remains in contention, but is headed to Friday night’s consolation quarterfinals.

Bellbrook’s Ben Sherrill is also still undefeated after winning his Championship quarterfinal match at 132 pounds in Division II.

Local wrestlers Gavin Bell of Beavercreek (138 pounds, Division I), Blake Coy of Carroll (170, D-II), Teagan Hendricks of Greeneview (106 D-III), and Dillon Walker of Legacy Christian (152, D-III) were eliminated earlier in the tournament.
