Broncos win Sheridan Invitational title

MT. ORAB – The Western Brown Broncos wrestling squad had a busy week last week.

The team battled Williamsburg and Newport in a tri-match held at Western Brown High School last Thursday. They started the night off strong, blanking Newport 82-0, before picking up a 49-19 win over Williamsburg.

That led the team to Thornville, Ohio, Saturday for the Sheridan Invitational, where the squad earned the championship with a strong overall performance. The Broncos finished with 273 points, 49 ahead of Logan High School.

Jed Marlow won all three of his matches in pool play at the 106-pound class and advanced to the championship match with a pin of Logan’s Cody Vernon. He then defeated Northridge freshman Klay Reeves by a 7-4 decision to take the title.

Seth Taylor went 5-0 in his pool, pinning four of his five opponents and defeating the fifth via tech fall (20-2). Jordan Hamblin made quick work of his three opponents in pool play, pinning all three of them in less than four minutes combined. In the bracket, Hamblin pinned his fourth opponent in just 46 seconds and won the title with his fifth pin of the tournament, beating teammate Blake Hurt in the finals.

Jacob Haggerty split his four pool matches and lost to Logan’s Wyatt Garren, but still took home a sixth-place finish. Derek Spears would take home a fourth-place finish in the 138-pound class, pinning two of his three pool play opponents before falling to Johnstown senior Hayden Bullard in the bracket.

In the 145-pound class, Jake Henderson rolled through his four matches in pool play, pinning all of his opponents. He would drop a close 8-7 decision to Farfield Union senior Kevin Beal in the championship match.

Malachi Marlow also was able to dispatch his four pool opponents, pinning all four. He would beat Northridge junior Steel Strout 2-1 in overtime to win the title in the 152-pound class.

Senior Eric Altman swept his pool play, winning three matches by pin in under three minutes. The fourth match Altman won via a 5-1 decision, but Warren’s Casey Parsons pinned Altman 55 seconds into the championship match.

Davey Stamper’s only loss in pool play came to Warren’s Austin Miles, who pinned Stamper in 2:55. Stamper would finish fourth after being unable to wrestle in his final match in the 182-pound class due to injury.

After three pins in pool play, Jacob Altman earned a shot at a title in the 195-pound weight class. Altman defeated Fairfied union’s Andrew McCandlish by a tech fall (22-6) and earned a 10-6 decision victory over Logan’s Tommy Hayden to win the title for the Broncos.

The final wrestler to place was Seth Jermer, who finished fourth in the 285-pound class.

The Broncos’ JV squad was in action last weekend as well, finishing second in the New Richmond Invitational. The Broncos finished with 167 points, well behind Ross, who earned 258.5.

Steven Grooms won a title in the 138-pound class, pinning Goshen’s Collin Briggs. Michael Allender finished second in the 145-pound class and Evan Luttrell, Michael Nehus, Seth Montgomery and Austin Terrell all picked up third-place finishes for Western Brown.

The Broncos’ varsity and junior varsity squads will both be back in action Saturday, Jan. 16, at 10 a.m. at the Hammer & Anvil Invitational, held at Western Brown High School.
