Austintown Fitch’s Adam Emerick finished in second, while Fitch’s Brody Herman took home the bronze.
“I’m feeling pretty good right now,” Durig said. “I was getting a little bit nervous. That was the second jump-off I’ve had in the past two weeks. I had one with Brody Herman last week and now I got one with Adam. So, I was getting a little nervous, but I knew I could get it.”
All three athletes advance to Regionals.
