Park also had a pair of runner-ups with Dallas Baciak and Eric Banks. The Patriots finished fifth overall in Class AAA. Huntington won the team title.

Meanwhile in Ohio, Claymont racked up 137.5 team points to finish as runner-up to powerful St. Paris Graham in Division II.  Graham took first with 185.5 points.


Claymont had eight state-placers, including two champions. Sophomore Tyler Warner defended his title at 106 with a 2-0 decision.


His brother, Dustin, followed with an 8-4 decision over West Holmes' Cole Woods to bring home a second title to the Warner household.


Claymont's Garrett Harding was runner-up at 220.


Steubenville sophomore Tariq Wilson wrapped up a brilliant season with a runner up finish at 113 pounds in Division II. Wilson fell to Graham's Eli Stickley 9-0 in the finals.
