Broncos battle at Brecksville

Coming off a decisive victory over the Bethel-Tate Tigers in the in-school dual Friday, Dec. 18, the Western Brown Broncos looked to continue their winning ways when the team hit the mat last week in the Brecksville Invitational, held in Broadview Heights, Ohio.

Broncos sophomore Brandon Lucas had a successful tournament. He knocked off Sam Fender, a sophomore from Padua Franciscan, 12-3 in his first match of the event.

He would then win three more matches before falling to Dayton Christian’s Ronnie Pietro 2-1 in overtime at the semifinals. Pietro would be pinned by Olentangy Liberty’s Brandon Mead in the championship match. Lucas would settle for a third-place finish, knocking off Solon’s Jake Canitano 5-0.

Seth Taylor also participated in the tournament for the Broncos, but he dropped his first match to Delta’s Ross Rayfield 9-4, sending him to the consolation bracket. Taylor picked up a win over Mt. Vernon’s Cameron Farmer before falling to Brecksville’s Andrew Perelka 9-4.

Jordan Hamblin represented the Broncos at the 120 pound class. Hamblin won his first match by pinning Nelsonville-York’s Evan Mohler 1:52 into their contest. He then dropped his next decision to Elyria’s Brandon Fenton. A 4-0 decision victory over Elder’s Chucky Lipps earned Hamblin a second match in the consolation bracket, where he was pinned by Fremont’s Lamonte Chapman.

In the 145-pound class, Jake Henderson knocked off Loveland’s Nate Lawrey before Edison’s Alex Newberget sent him to the consolation bracket via a 3-2 decision. Henderson would then pin Wauseon’s Andrew Bailey before Perrysburb’s Brock Jones eleminated him with a close 2-1 decision.

Malachi Marlow lost his first match in the 152-poudnd division via a tech fall (16-1) but picked up a pair of wins in the consolation bracket. He pinned Nelsonville’s Anthony Koping and won a 3-0 decision over Lake Catholic’s Colin Langer before a 9-1 major decision loss to Edison’s Dan Stoll ended his tournament run.

Eric Altman and Davey Stamper each lost their first two matches, with Altman falling in the 160 pound class and Stamper participating in the 182 pound class.

The final Bronco wrestler to compete in Brecksville was Jake Altman in the 195 pound class. Altman beat RD Stansberry from Licking Valley before Lake’s Grant Martin pinned Altman in the next matchup. Altman beat Clyde’s Ryan Kelley in his first consolation bout before a 1-0 loss to St. Ignatius Kyle Vilsack ended his tournament.

Western Brown finished 31st out of the 50 schools in the meet, though it’s important to note the team sent just eight wrestlers to the event. Eight of the top ten schools in the final standings sent at least 11 wrestlers.

The Bronco freshman team fared much better in the Trent Shell Memorial at Northwest High School. Tanner Donathan, Blake Hurt, Derek Spears, Dylan Mosher and Austin Terrill all earned championships at the event, and the team dominated the overall standings, earning 237.5 points. The second-place team, Fairfield, tallied just 180.

The varsity squad returned to action Jan. 2 in the Butler Super-Tri at Butler High School. The team improved to 6-0 on the season thanks to a 45-21 victory over Lebanon.

Sophomore Jacob Haggerty pinned junior Marc Galinger 3:54 into their match at the 132-pound class. Jacob Spears knocked off Braden Murphy 8-3 in the 138-pound class to put the Broncos up 9-0.

Jake Henderson pinned Evan Ball just 1:44 into their match to give Western Brown a 15-0 lead. Malachi Marlow pinned John Bates to increase the Broncos’ lead to 21-0.

Nicholas Fornshell picked up Lebanon’s first win of the match by pinning senior Corey Meyer 58 seconds into their match, but Eric Altman got the Broncos back on the winning track with a 9-7 decision over Cody Case.

Stamper earned a victory for the Broncos in the 195-pound class with a slim 3-2 lead over Ryan Maupin. Devon Amburgy, Brendan Wamsley and Brad Booher all earned victories for the Warriors to cut the Western Brown lead to 27-21.

However, that’s as close as the Warriors would get. Jed Marlow won a 4-0 decision over Adam Dillon, Lucas pinned Michael Nemeth, Taylor pinned Nathan Urban and Hamblin picked up a 8-6 victory over Samuel Ridgley to seal the Broncos’ win.

The team returns to action Thursday, Jan. 7 with a tri-match at home. Edgewood and Williamsburg will be among the schools in attendence.

This weekend, the squad splits up. The junior varsity team heds to the New Richmond Invitational while the varsity squad competes at the Sheridan Invitational in Thornville, Ohio.
