Matmen will parade to Columbus

19 locals qualify for state meet

Lakeside senior wrestler Kyle Conel had a couple of reasons to celebrate following the final round of wrestling at the Division I district tournament Saturday at Mentor High School.

The first was that he booked his second consecutive trip to the Ohio State Wrestling Championships at Value City Arena starting Thursday. The second was that teammate Tyler Newsome made his way onto a podium at Mentor and secured his own ticket to Ohio State University.

“(Winning) didn’t feel much different than any other match,” Conel said. “I’m just ready to go on to state.

“I think I reacted a little more (when Newsome qualified). I was really happy to see him go. He really wrestled a lot different today than he did yesterday. He proved himself. He showed he had guts.”

Conel and Newsome will be joined in Columbus by Corbin Post, Ryan Montgomery, Bo Ransom, Drew Schiemann of Madison and Nick Boggs of Riverside.

Conel claimed the district title at 195 to move to 49-0 on the year. Post was third at 106, Newsome was 4th at 120, Boggs was 2nd at 132, Montgomery was 2nd at 138, Ransom was 2nd at 145 and Schiemann was third at 195.

“It’s not a big surprise to us (that Newsome qualified for the state tournament),” Lakeside coach Jim Brady said. “He lost his first one and won 4 in a row. I’m really proud of him.

“Kyle is just Kyle. He’s dominating.”

The Blue Streaks took 3rd as a team with 81.5 points, the Beavers were 12th with 46.5 and the Dragons were 13th with 44.5.

Madison’s Jarrad Lasko missed a trip to Columbus after leaving the mat following his consolation semifinal having thought he’d advanced to the final and therefore the state tourney. A scoring error had been made and Lasko was called back to the mat for an overtime period in which he lost, 13-12. He finshed 5th at 126.

Connor Rigsby was 5th at 182 and Chad Ely was 5th at 195 for Riverside.
