The 2012-13 OHSAA Wrestling State Tournament is come and gone.
Every year, it amazes me at how quickly and smoothly it seems to run and how much more competitive it seems to get year after year.
I know, the usual suspects: Lakewood St. Edward’s in Division I and St. Paris Graham — with the Jordan legacy in full force — in Division II; always seem to do pretty well. But it seems as if more and more schools are sending athletes down to participate, especially in the smaller schools.
Just to even get there is an incredible achievement. Let’s fact it; with the way these bodies get contorted — I am surprised more shoulders, elbows and other parts of the human body that weren’t made to go THAT way don’t get ripped out of their sockets — wrestling is not for the faint of heart and it takes a lot of guts to even be out there.
Kudos to Jefferson’s trio of seniors that got there: Colin McConnahea, who finished seventh, Geoff Ketcham and Quinten Wessell; and St. John’s senior Will Buettner.
