PA Wrestlers Claim Crowns at Ohio TOC

Four Pennsylvania wrestlers won Ohio Tournament of Champions titles in the Elite Division on Saturday in Columbus, including a pair of Union City seniors.

Bears teammates Gavin Henry (190 pounds) and Matt Long (285) captured championships to join Canon-McMillan senior Kenny Hayman (132) and Freedom Area sophomore Trent Schultheis (160).

Two of the championship matches were all-PA affairs.

Despite giving up the opening takedown, PIAA runner-up Schultheis beat South Fayette’s Eli Brinsky 3-2 in the finals of the tournament, which uses modified rules and includes a single 3-minute period for each bout.

Henry, who finished third in Class AA this season, scored off a low-leg single in the first 15 seconds of his finals match with McGeary and held on for a 2-0 victory.

A fifth-place PIAA finisher, Long scored four takedowns – including two in the final 15 seconds – for an 8-1 victory over Blake Coffell of Michigan in the championship match.

Hayman, who placed fourth in Class AAA, scored a reversal with 13 seconds left for a 6-5 victory over Kentucky’s Thomas Deck in their final bout.

Four Keystone State wrestlers won titles in the Cadet Division, with West Allegheny’s Ty Watters (105), Harborcreek’s Connor Pierce (120), Mifflin County’s Kyler Everly (135) and Greenville’s Cole Karpinski (171) claiming championships.
