The Big Red were missing two wrestlers from the starting lineup, but were able to come up with another trophy on the young season.

Wayne Trace won the tournament with 238 points, while Plymouth finished second with 213 points and Van Buren was in third with 195.

Plymouth was led by Noah Trimmer at 145 pounds, who was 5-0 on the day to claim first place. In his championship match, Trimmer scored a 7-1 decision over Arcadia's Jordan McGowan.

Nick Roberts took second at 103, as did Jacob Echelbarger (132) and Jacob Robinson (138). Zach Oney (152) and Breydan Allen (285) each placed third. Earning fourth was Keith Tuttle (120).

"I am excited on how hard the kids are working and every week someone steps up," Plymouth wrestling coach Jeremiah Balkin said. "Noah had a great tournament and was able to receive his first championship in high school. I am proud of him and how he has matured this year. Nick continued a great performance with a second place finish.

"Our lone senior Jacob Echelbarger was able to place second, which helped his confidence," he added. "Freshman Jacob Robinson was able to place second at two meets on the year. We had 11 healthy kids this week and 10 of them placed. This was a total team effort and I am excited to see how we improve week-to-week."


Bellevue wins host Invite

BELLEVUE — The Redmen, who scored 148 points in Saturday’s placement matches, beat out runners-up Oak Harbor by a 364-302 score to win their own Bob Bailey Invitational.

Sophomore Collin Corapi topped Clyde’s Derick Coleman in the 170-pound title match in overtime, 8-7. His title was one of three for the Redmen.

Mayes, seventh at state as freshman, has two tournament titles in two weeks. Last season, he landed on the school’s top-10 list for wins in a season (46) while his 29 pins ranked third Redmen single-season history.

The Redmen were third in the Sandusky Bay Conference Lake Division at last season’s league tournament with Noah Alda and Mayes both earning second-place finishes.
