More than 200 wrestlers from 26 schools competed in 14 weight classes at the event which was held at Austintown Fitch High School.
“Everyone in terms of Ohio kinda thinks of Cleveland and Akron as one of the best regions in the country, but our guys are right there with them in terms of competing at the district and state level,” EOWL Commissioner Max Pearce said. “We’ve got placers at just about every weight. We always have good big guys, too. So, you can always see those football guys coming across, playing wrestling and turning into state placers.”
