Greenville remains hot by sweeping Region 2 Duals

CAMBRIDGE SPRINGS — It’s been a busy start to the season for the Greenville wrestling team, but it’s been a fruitful one. The Trojans lost just one of the 11 dual matches they’ve participated in since Dec. 8 including a 5-0 sweep at the Region 2 Duals, hosted by Cambridge Springs High School on Saturday.

“Our kids are a little bit tired. We’ve had 11 dual matches in a week,” said Greenville head coach John Reynolds. His team also hosted the Sheetz Kickoff Classic on Dec. 8, in which the Trojans went 4-1, losing their only match of the year so far to Brookville.

“Coming in, we need a little bit of a break,” he said. “But, overall, a pretty good performance.”

The Trojans opened the day with their tightest victory of the event, slipping by Jamestown 36-33. They then followed it up with wins over Cambridge Springs (66-18), Girard (45-12), Maplewood (53-15) and Commodore Perry (72-6).

The Trojans had six wrestlers go undefeated. Blake Horne, the team’s 152-pounder, was the only one who had opponents in all five matches. He had three pins, one major decision and a narrow 3-2 win over Commodore Perry’s Tyler Osborne.

Jase Paxton (106), Gage Gladysz (160), Zach Miller (170/182) and Justin Reynolds (195) each went 5-0 with the help of at least one forfeit. And heavyweight Braden Gladysz had four matches on the day and earned pins in each one. That includes the decisive bout in the Jamestown dual, which featured Gladysz pinning the Muskies’ Mark Brenizer in 1:03.

Muskies nearly win it

The Jamestown wrestling team had the second-best day, finishing 4-1 with its lone loss to Greenville.

“Lost by three,” Muskies head coach Steve Pfaff said about the Greenville match. “It was a close one, a barn-burner. I thought we might pull it out. But I’m just happy we contended with them.”

The Muskies went on to defeat Commodore Perry (70-12), Maplewood (44-29), Girard (47-16) and Cochranton (43-33).

Jonas Reaugh, the Muskies’ 126-pounder, had three pins, a major decision and a forfeit on his way to a 5-0 day. Nick Floch, at 132, was undefeated with two pins, two forfeits, and a 7-3 decision over Greenville’s Derek Watt. And 220-pounder Keamus Schuhlen went 4-0 with three pins and a forfeit.

Yet, Pfaff was really impressed with his freshman at 138, Seth Thurber.

“Seth Thurber, to me, really stood out (Saturday),” said Pfaff. Thurber went 4-1 with two pins, a technical fall and a decision, with his lone loss coming by fall to Girard’s Gage Dalton.

“He got caught once,” Pfaff said. “And actually it was back and forth with (Dalton), and I thought he could have beat him if it went the distance, but he got caught. But still he did very well (Saturday).”

The latest proposed expansion plan for the Crawford County Courthouse potentially would eliminate the former Tarr Mansion on Diamond Park to make room for a county administrative building. Should the 1860 mansion be demolished?

Leave it alone because it’s historic.
Try to incorporate it into the proposed expansion.
It’s too far gone to save, but it’s memory may be preserved with an artifacts and photo display within the proposed courthouse complex.
