H.S. WRESTLING: Class AA takes to mat with spot at states in sight

(Continued)

March 1, 2013 7:00 a.m. MEADVILLE — Bears, Muskies in good position

The District 10 championships were kind to Union City’s Tim Vargo as he was crowned the champion at 170 pounds after a hard-fought overtime victory over Andrews. Vargo, along with heavyweight Jeff Burger, received byes into the quarterfinals. Burger, the District 10 runner-up, will face Jack Karsten of Cameron County.

Also advancing to the regional for the Bears were Dustin Tomcho (126) and Josh Reinke (160). Each finished in sixth place in their respective weight classes at districts.

Jamestown had an opportunity for a district champion last week but senior Nick Floch was unable to finish off Seneca’s Adam Fish in the finals. Floch will face Dalton Zimmerman of Brookville in the quarterfinals at 132 pounds.

The Muskies had three more wrestlers advanced with Faris Messai (106), Seth Thurber (138) and Jason Shappee (195) finishing in the top six last week.

Sailors, Tiger, Eagles stay alive

The Lakeview Sailors, Maplewood Tiger and Conneaut Eagles did not have a strong showing at last week’s districts but were still able to manage to advance three, three and two wrestlers, respectively, to the regional.

Lakeview heavyweight Sam Breese is returning to the regional for the second straight year. Breese finished second in the region last year and eventually went on to states. He will begin his regional journey in the quarterfinals against Dylan Dinch of Smethport. Evan Clayton (106) and Marquis Spence (170) will also be competing for a chance to go to Hershey.

Maplewood also sent three wrestlers to the regional. Daniel Simmerman (120), Zak Dennis (132) and Isaiah Stearns (182) made the cut out of last week’s districts.

Conneaut will be sending the least amount of local grapplers back to Sharon, with Kyle Lukowich and Talor Ellis being the only two to qualify. Lukowich will face Tomcho at 126 pounds in the preliminary round. At 145, Ellis will start with a bout against Louie Head of Eisenhower.

  • Teen doping Survey: Teens experimenting with HGH on the rise

    Michael Guerreri wanted to try human growth hormones so he could look like a pro wrestler. Joe Badalanato hoped HGH would help him become a better football player. James O’Brien figured the drug would improve his fastball.
    The three 18-year-olds from suburban Philadelphia told The Associated Press this week that they bought bottles of HGH online in the past year. Turns out, what they bought was fake.

Poll

A South Carolina woman was arrested recently after the McDonald’s employee let her daughter spend the day playing in a nearby park while she worked her shift. The decision has created a debate over “free-range” parenting and whether it’s a good idea or not. What’s your take?

I’m fine with it. If she cannot afford childcare, what choice does she have?
This is horrible and very bad parenting.
I’m torn. It’s not right what she did, but it sounds like the mother had few other options.
