Findlay, OH-The Varsity grapplers made the short trip up I-75 to Findlay to kick off the 2016-2017 Wrestling campaign. Still not at 100% strength and the lineup not completely set, the Skins went 4-1 on the day and were able to get several wrestlers into the lineup. The Redskins opened the day by defeating Sandusky 47-33. They dropped the next match to Medina 33-39 before reeling off victories against Arcadia, Eaton, and North Canton Hoover.
Going undefeated on the day for Wapakoneta were Luke Beach (4-0), Tyler Copeland (5-0), Landon Hall (5-0) and Brenen Kneuve (2-0). Jayden Hefner, Brad Beemer, and Trevor Plaugher all went 4-1 on the day.
The Skins travel to Defiance this Tuesday to square off against Western Buckeye League foes Defiance and Ottawa Glandorf. Always strong, Defiance returns two State Placers Timothy Gage Grunden (3rd@145) and Robbie Bowers (2nd@182), State Qualifier Daniel Assaf, and 5 District Qualifiers. OG returns State Placer Daniel Beemer (5th @182) along with 6 District Qualifiers from last season.
