WEST LIBERTY — Not even a tornado warning could stop the 25th annual Tri-State Wrestling “Clash of Champions” Wednesday night.

However, the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference All-Stars couldn’t weather a late flurry by the Midwestern Athletic Conference from western Pennsylvania in dropping a razor-thin, 26-25, decision inside the ASRC on the campus of West Liberty University.

The locals held a commanding 25-9 advantage with three matches remaining, but the Keystone Staters received a pair of pins and a technical fall to eke out the victory, their first since 2018. The OVAC leads the all-time series 17-8.

Trailing 25-21, Moon’s Khyvon Grace put on a takedown clinic in the third period against Beaver Local’s Mark Emmerling Jr. Leading 9-2 after two periods, Grace got a reversal, five takedowns and a key penalty point for a 22-6 technical fall and the winning points. His final takedown came just before the final buzzer.

“I really didn’t pay much attention to the team score until it got close there,” Cameron’s Tim Jones, who served as the OVAC’s head coach, said. “We had a pretty good lead there, but give the MAC credit. They battled back and got the job done.”

The OVAC enjoyed its 16-point lead after St. Clairsville’s Gannon Kazmirski earned a 14-2 major decision over Montour’s James Walzer at 113 pounds. Kazmirski, the Red Devils’ flyweight who won the OVAC Ron Mauck Tournament and finished eighth in the Division II OHSAA State Tournament, didn’t waste any time in taking control with eight first-period points.

The senior-only dual started at 138 and the MAC took a 3-0 lead on a 4-0 decision by Ambrose Boni (Central Valley) over Emmerling Jr., who wrestled twice for the short-handed OVAC squad.

Beaver Local’s Dorian Jackson gave the OVAC a 6-3 nod with a pin in 5:32 while leading Ambridge’s Tyler Holman at 145.

Chartiers Valley’s Christopher Beatty held off St. Clairsville’s Division II state 150-pound champion Caden Stout, 9-7, at 152. It was Beatty’s 100th career win and tied the score at 6.

Back-to-back decisions by Gabe Carman (Wheeling Park) and Elijah Wellings-Osha (University) gave the hosts a 12-6 margin.

Carman, a West Virginia Class AAA state champion, used a late takedown to edge Montour’s Aaron DeLuca, 7-6, while Wellings-Osha dominated Quaker Valley’s Mason Diemert, 10-3, at 170.

Quaker Valley’s Patrick Cutchember rallied from a 4-3 deficit against Cameron’s two-time OVAC Ron Mauck titlist and two-time WVSSAC Class A state champ, 5-4. Trailing 4-3, Cutchember secured a takedown with 10 seconds left for the win.

A 9-3 decision at 195 by Steubenville’s Brandon Kinney over Freedom’s Landon Millward began a three-match win streak as Big Red teammate Peyton Tuttle pinned Central Valley’s Lance Crawley in 45 seconds before Kazmirski’s victory.


–The match was officiated by Chester’s Derrick Stickles and Wheeling’s Jim Copney.

WEST LIBERTY — The 26th Tri-State Wrestling “Clash of Champions’ between the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference and Pennsylvania’s Midwestern Athletic Conference All Stars will be held Wednesday. After a year off due to COVID-19, the seniors-only event will take place inside the ASRC on the campus of West Liberty University at 7 p.m.

The pre-match banquet will be held on Tuesday at 6 p.m. at the Undos in Weirton.

The OVAC lineup, which still had two empty weight classes (126 and 215) as of Sunday night, is led by a trio of state champions, including St. Clairsville’s Caden Stout who won the Ohio Division II 150-pound state title. He will compete at 152. The others are Wheeling Park’s Nate Shelek (132) and Cameron’s Ian Bush (182), both two-time Mountain State champs.

Shelek and Bush are two of six OVAC Ron Mauck Tournament titlists on the local squad, with Stout finishing second. The others are St. Clairsville’s Gannon Kazmirski (113), Beaver Local’s Logan Ours (160), Indian Creek’s Austin Starr (195) and Steubenville’s Peyton Tuttle (285). Kazmirski also placed eighth in the D-II state tournament, while Ours — the OVAC Ron Mauck Tournament Bierkortte Award winner — was third and Starr second. Tuttle was a state qualifier.

Rounding out the OVAC roster are Indian Creek’s Tyler Sipes (120); Beaver Local’s duo of Mark Emmerling Jr. (138) and Dorian Jackson (145); and Universityás Elijah Wellings-Osha (170). Sipes finished fourth in the OVAC Ron Mauck Tournament, while Emmerling Jr. was sixth and a state qualifier. Jackson and Wellings-Osha were OVAC Ron Mauck Tournament runners-up.

As in the past, there will be no 106-pound match contested.

OVAC coaches include Cameron’s Tim Jones; Beaver Local’s Johnny McComas; and Wheeling Park’s Brian Leggett. Jones and Leggett were the Class A and Class AAA Coaches of the Year, respectively, this year at the 75th annual WVSSAC state tournament when they led the squads to state championships.

The MAC has wrestlers from nine different schools. Central Valley, Montour and Quaker Valley each have two, while Ambridge, Carlynton, Chartiers Valley, Freedom, Moon and South Fayette all have one.

Five Keystone State wrestlers won MAC Tournament titles this season, with Quaker Valley’s Patrick Cutchember (189) winning the MAC, WPIAL and finishing fourth at the PIAAás this season. He has 141 career wins and was seventh in the 2020 PIAAs.

Other MAC champs are Moon’s Khyvon Grace (132), Central Valley’s Ambrose Boni (138), Quaker Valleys Mason Diemert (172) and Freedom’s Landon Millward (215). Boni was sixth at the PIAAs.

The MAC roster is filled by Montourás James Walzer (113); South Fayette’s Jimmy Anderson (120); Carlynton’s Bryce Rodriguez (126); Ambridge’s Tyler Holman (145); Chartiers Valley’s Christopher Beatty (152); Montour’s Aaron DeLuca (160); and Central Valley’s Lance Crawley (285).

The OVAC leads the all-time series, 18-7.

WHEELING -- Depth is a vital part of any athletic team. It was a key element Saturday in Wheeling Park ending nearly two decades of frustration at the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference Ron Mauck Wrestling Championships.
With only two individual titlists, the Patriots piled up enough points in the first three sessions to overcome a terrible semifinal showing and then rolled to a convincing, 278-228.5, wire-to-wire victory over runnerup University to win not only the coveted overall team title for the first time since 2005, but also the Class 5A crown as the 68th edition capped its three-day stay inside WesBanco Arena.
âThis is a great team to coach. They love wrestling and want to win,ã Wheeling Park head coach Brian Leggett said of his squad which also captured the Wheeling Park Duals several weeks ago inside the same building. âWe put in a solid two days, but things didnát go to well early on today. However the kids bounced back and won some big consolation matches for us.ã
Winning their weight classes were senior Nate Shelek (132) and junior Bradyn Lucas (138). Shelek, a runnerup last season, held off Parkersburg Southás Ryan Martin 13-9 while Lucas decisioned Barnesvilleás Skyler King, 12-7.
âIt doesnát surprise me because they are practice partners and they get after it in the (wrestling) room,ã Leggett said about Shelek and Lucas.
The Patriots depth included a runnerup, four third-placers, two fourths, a fifth, two sixths and one seventh.
âOur team is still young,ã Leggett added. âWeáve got a lot of freshmen in the lineup that wrestled really well here.ã
Steubenville had a pair of titlists in Brody Saccoccia (120) and Peyton Tuttle (285). Saccoccia earned a 7-3 nod over Parkersburg Southás Brent Bosley and Tuttle pinned Universityás Corbin Turney in 3:58.
âWe knew that one was going to be a battle,ã first-year Steubenville head coach Lucas Huffman said of Tuttleás match. âPeyton wrestled a good, smart match.ã
Big Red finished a point behind Parkersburg South (108-107) and finished fourth overall, but Huffman was pleased.
âBrody earns everything he gets,ã Huffman said of Saccoccia.
âIám extremely proud of our team top to bottom,ã he noted. âWe just asked the kids to go out and compete, and they did. Iám extremely happy.ã
Barnesville captured the Class 3A title behind the championship performance of Dakota King (126) who posted a 19-4 technical fall over Steubenvilleás Cal Beadling. The Shamrocks also had a runnerup, a third and a fourth.
âWeáve got a good core of kids and battled through some adversity. Iám proud of them,ã Barnesvilleás Jayson Stephen said. âWe came in here thinking we could be a top 5 team and we lost some matches in the àblood roundá that we should never lose. That canát happen.ã
The Shamrocks tallied 118.5 points to 97 for runnerup Martins Ferry.
Oak Glenás Logan Davis (106) got the finals started with a 4-0 blanking of Cameronás Slaton Pettit.
âLogan wrestled well. He was the No. 1 seed coming in and did what he had to,ã Oak Glen head coach Patrick McGillian said of Davis. âHe was pretty flawless in the finals. Iám proud of him.ã
The Dragons did get a champion in senior Ian Bush (182). The two-time OVAC and two-time defending W.Va. state champion is a WVU recruit. He pinned Cambridgeás Caden Kenworthy in 3:03.
âWe knew coming in that we had a pretty good chance at winning our class,ã Cameron head coach Tim Jones allowed. âWe challenged the kids to show up, and they did. Even the guys that didnát place fought hard. Definitely a team effort.
âItás going to be hard when he wrestles his last match for us,ã Jones said of Bush, who pinned his way through the
tournament to win the Hercules Award. âHe is something special.ã
Capturing titles for Indian Creek, which finished second to Beaver Local in the Class 4A race, set a school milestone Saturday.
âThis was a special weekend for us because weáve never had two individual champions in school history,ã Indian Creekás Brandon Pendleton said. âThis is a good group of guys that weáve been focusing on doing things for the first time with. I couldnát be any more proud of them.ã
Standing atop the podium were Dom Paterra (152) and Austin Starr (195). Paterra knocked off top-seeded Caden Stout of St. Clairsville, 3-2, while Starr blanked Universityás Brock Kehler, 7-0.
Also winning titles were St. Clairsvilleás Gannon Kazmirski (113); Universityás Luca Felix (145); Beaver Localás Logan Ours (160); Parkersburg Southás Gage Wright (170) and Harrison Centralás Lucas Thomas (220).
Kazmirski, the fourth seed, made a second-period escape hold up in a 1-0 win over John Marshallás Ethan Cook. Felix topped Beaver Localás unseeded Dorian Jackson, 10-3. Ours, who was voted the Bierkortte Award winner by tournament coaches, pinned Universityás Dakota Hagedorn in 2:53, and Wright scored a fall in 5:34 over Universityás Elijah Wellings-Osha. Thomas shocked a lot of people when he pinned Wheeling Parkás Erick Brothers Jr. in 5:22 trailing 5-2.
âGannon winning isnát really a surprise to me,ã St. Clairsvilleás Joel Sansone said. âWhen we lost to Cook last week in the finals at Cameron by a 2-1 score in overtime on a fleeing the mat call, I told him he would see him (Cook) next week at OVACs when it matters.ã
âLucas earns every bit of what he got tonight,ã Harrison Centralás Bill Bryant said of his third seed. âHe works a lot harder and puts more time in in the (wrestling) room than anybody on the team. He puts in a ton of mat time. He traveled this summer to make himself better.ã
Thomas is the Huskiesá first champion since Doug Eddy in 2012.

SHADYSIDE -- With the 68th annual OVAC Ron Mauck Wrestling Tournament looming at the end of the week, Martins Ferry gained some momentum by capturing the Last Man Standing Tournament Saturday afternoon inside the Tiger Den at Shadyside High School.
The Purple Riders tallied 183 points in the pool-style event, which was 17 better than runnerup Southern Localás 166. Wheeling Parkás àBá team was third with 129.5, while short-handed Barnesville had 102 and River 55 to round out the top 5. Defending champion Bridgeport was sixth with 50. Shadyside finished with 47.4, Toronto had 37 and Steubenville Catholic 31.
Martins Ferry had six of the 14 champions as Jace Mahoney (106), Dylan Ward (113), Johnny McFarland (157), George Hulsey (165), Alexander Finsley (190) and Zak Dobson (215).
Four other Purple Riders placed in the top 4 of their respective weight class. They were runnersup Jonathan Rossano (126), Trey Regis (144) and Zeke Bruney (285), while Kaden Archer (138) finished third.
âThis was kind of a spur-of-the-moment thing. We just jumped into this tournament at the beginning of the week,ã Martins Ferry head coach Chad Ware said. âWe had some points open up on our schedule so we thought it would be good to get matches in before the OVACs. This should give us some momentum heading into this week.ã
Martins Ferry was able to score bonus points all day long as the half-a-dozen titlists combined for 17 pins. Dobson, who is now 20-0, led the way with four, including three in less than a minute. McFarland, Hulsey and Finsley all had three, with Hulseyás coming in less than 60 seconds. Mahoney and Ward evenly divided four.
Barnesville had a pair of champs in Reese Stephen (126) and Luke Shaffer (132), who was competing unattached. Stephen, now 20-0, scored five falls, with all but one coming in less than a minute. Shaffer had four pins.
Shadysideás Andrew Osman (144) had a pin, a technical fall and two decisions in earning his title.
Also standing atop the awards podium were Wheeling Parkás Cody Walsh (120); Southern Localás Maddox Dickey (138), Chance Wooley (150) and Wyatt Morris (175); and Torontoás Josh Fancher (285).
Wheeling Park had four runnersup in Chance Funari (138), Jordan Combs (150), Kevon Burkle (157) and Gavin Washington (175).
Barnesville had two second-place finishers in Blake Hinkle (132) and Marshall Meade (190), while Bridgeport's Peyton Pyle (144) and Rivers Noah Lively (215) also finished second.
Osman and Wooley were named co-Most Outstanding Wrestlers by a vote of tournament coaches.
The OVAC Ron Mauck Tournament begins Thursday and runs through Saturday inside downtown Wheelingás WesBanco Arena. it was postponed for the first time in its history last winter due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

ST. CLAIRSVILLE -- Despite having four individual champions and 10 overall placers, St. Clairsville finished runnerup in its own Americaás Best Value Inn wrestling tournament Wednesday on John Jenkins Court inside St. Clairsville High School.
The Red Devils amassed 118 points, which left them a dozen behind champion Newark. Martins Ferry was third with 79 and Shenandoah fourth with 74.
âThe way we ran the tournament this year we didnát keep points until the placement round, so the wins kids got that didnát place at least sixth in their weight classes didnát count towards team points,ã St. Clairsville head coach Joel Sansone explained. âThat kind of hurt us because we had 13 (out of 14) weight classes filled. The bottom line is though, if you want to win a tournament you need some runnersup and we didnát have enough there to finish it out.
âHowever, second place isnát bad with a young team. We had three freshmen place (in the top six of their weight classes).ã
St. Clairsville titlists included Gannon Kazmirski (113), Caden Stout (157), Gavin Schoolcraft (165) and Jacob Walker (190).
Other local champions were Harrison Centralás Gabe Marbais (138) and Martins Ferryás Zak Dobson (215).
âGannon pinned his way through the tournament. He took care of business,ã Sansone said of his returning Division II state qualifier. âHe trains like a made man and never quits looking to score. He might not be as big or strong as some of his opponents, but he is fundamentally sound when it comes to his technique.ã
Kazmirski collected his 100th career win with his 1-minute, 24-second pin in the finals.
âCaden has really been pushing himself in practice to never stop and continue to look for points. He put up 19 points against a pretty good opponent in the finals,ã Sansone added. âHeás doing what we want.ã
Stout is a three-time state qualifier.
The senior, who was second team all-Ohio in soccer last fall, was voted the Delande Family Most Outstanding Wrestler by tournament coaches.
âIt feels good. Anytime you win an MVP it feels good,ã Stout said. âIt just shows that all the hard work I put in is paying off.ã
Schoolcraft, just a freshman, pinned his opponent in the finals to earn his title.
âGavin has been a bit of a surprise,ã Sansone admitted. âI knew how good he was, but Iám not sure he knew. Heás gained a lot of confidence in the (wrestling) room now that he is scoring on the upperclassmen. I told him to just go out and take each match one at a time and focus on what you need to do.ã
Walker also recorded a pin to claim his weight class.
âJacob has a chip on his shoulder,ã Sansone advised. âHe had a bad tournament at North Canton and he was a little down and out about it but I told him to keep wrestling hard and working hard and things will come around. He went out and scored points and got pins.ã
Dobson pinned Edisonás Jamison Stiles in the finals to capture his second consecutive ABVI title. He also notched career win No. 100 during the day-long event.
âHe looked good. He dominated,ã Martins Ferry assistant coach Taylor Yoder said of Dobson while filling in for head coach Chad Ware who went to an area hospital with Purple Rider, George Hulsey, who had suffered an ankle injury earlier in the tournament. âHe looked good on his feet. He looked good on top. Overall, he looked great.ã
Martins Ferry has eight individuals reach the awards podium. Trey Regis (144) finished second.
Marbais performed well in winning his weight class.
âThis is the best he has in the last two years,ã Harrison Central head coach Bill Bryant said. âHe started to show some good things toward the end of last season, but he got struck with COVID, thus ending his season.
âHe showed some good things today. He puts in the extra work to get better, and thatás what we want our kids to do.ã
The Huskies had a trio of placers in placing in addition to Marbais.
Bridgeport had a second-place finisher in Mason Aberts (132).
Torontoás Jason Fancher (285) finished second to Maysvilleás highly regarded Gauge Sampson.

Barnesville Doan Ford Invitational (12/17/21-12/18/21)


Kim North is the man!

Times Leader Sports Writer

BARNESVILLE -- For the second consecutive week, Barnesville let a lead entering the final round slip away and ended up settling for second place.
Saturday at the Barnesville Doan Ford Invitational wrestling tournament, the Shamrocks held a slim, 163-160.5, advantage over Teays Valley, but the Vikings recorded victories in two of the final three weight classes to claim a 189.5-187 nod. Barnesville was runnerup at the Union Local Rick Link Invitational last Saturday after a disappointing final round.
Teays Valley 285-pounder Joey Thurston provided the winning points with a pin in the final match of the event.
Barnesville fared better in the championship finals this time around, going 4-for-6, but it still wasnát enough even though all four Shamrock titlists recorded pins.
âWe had a better weekend than we did last week,ã Barnesville head coach Jayson Stephen allowed. âI think the competition was a lot stiffer here. There were a lot of good matches.ã
Winning championships were Reese Stephen (120), Dakota King (126), Griffen Stephen (132) and Skyler King (138), while Ayden King (144) and Logan Tague (150) both finished second.
Reese Stephen won his first Barnesville championship with a pin in 1:50. Dakota King needed just 1:08. Griffen Stephen recorded a lightning-quick fall in 11 seconds for his third title; and Skyler King took 5:39.
âWe had two more champs today than last week, but there were a couple of weight classes where I thought we could get in the top 6 and didnát,ã the coach said. âReese and Dakota did what they had to do and Griffen is wrestling like a cinder block right now. Skyler wrestled a great match. That was a rematch of the (Div. III) District finals last season.ã
Karson Milhoan (157) was the other Shamrock to earn a top-6 finish.
Other Ohio Valley wrestlers earning titles were the Indian Creek trio of CJ Spencer (144), Dom Paterra (150) and Reese Spencer (157); and Cameronás Adam Angel (175).
C.J. Spencer won by pin while Paterra and Reese Spencer earned decisions.
âC.J., Dom and Reese have all been wrestling well. We got off to a slow start and donát have very many matches, but weáve spent a lot of time in the practice room,ã Indian Creek head coach Brandon Pendleton said. âAll three of those guys had great tournaments.ã
The Redskins, who finished in a tie for fourth with River Valley, had three other wrestlers reach the podium.
Angel, a transfer and Class AAA state placer from Wheeling Park, outlasted Cambridgeás Caden Kenworthy, 7-5, in sudden-victory.
âWeáre glad to have him,ã Cameron head coach Tim Brown said of Angel. âHe put together a good tournament, especially today when he was really focused.ã
The Dragons also had a runnerup in WVU recruit Ian Bush (190). The defending OVAC and W.Va. Class A-AA state champion, dropped a 6-4 tiebreaker to Teays Valleyás Camden McDaniel, who was voted the Most Outstanding Wrestler by tournament coaches and is a Fargo National champion.
Cameron had one other placer.
John Marshallás Ethan Cook (113) also finished runnerup, dropping a 1-0 nod to Brady Fisher of London.
The Monarchs also had eight other individuals earn places as they finished third with 148 points.
Bellaire also had a placer.
Other champions were Teays Valleyás Gunner Havens (106) and River Valleyás Aiden Greene (215). Havens earned the Peck Award for Most Pins in the championship bracket in the least amount of time. All four of his wins came by first-period pins, including a pair under 20 seconds.
