Six Clermont grapplers earn trip to state

Six of Clermont County’s finest high school wrestlers have extended their season another week by qualifying for this weekend’s state championship tournament that will take place at the Jerome L. Schottenstein Center on the campus of The Ohio State University, Columbus.

The top four wrestlers in each weight class in each division qualify for the state’s final showdown.

Division III

Williamsburg junior 125-pounder Allen Schweickart achieved fourth place in the Division III tournament that took place in the Greater Dayton area at Kettering Fairmont High School.

“He had a real good tournament,” said Williamsburg head wrestling coach Mark Isaac. “He lost early in the tournament, but had a great wrestleback. He won three matches in the wrestlebacks. He’s had a good year.”
