2013-14 Star Beacon All-Ashtabula County Wrestling: A baker’s dozen

Thirteen matmen comprise the 2013-14 Star Beacon All-Ashtabula County squad

The 2013-14 wrestling season came to a close with 6 Ashtabula County grapplers battling it out on the mats at the state tournament in Columbus.

However, there were 7 others who were within reach of making the big show at Value City Arena.

Those 13 young men comprise the Star Beacon All-Ashtabula County team.

The group is headlined by Division I state champion Kyle Conel of Lakeside, who tussled at 195 pounds.

Lakeside and Grand Valley lead the way with 3 members each. Joining Conel are fellow Dragons Tyler Newsome, a senior and state qualifier at 120 pounds and freshman Michael Coup, a freshman at 170. The Mustangs include 3-time state qualifier Glenn Zaller (195) and 160-pounder Luke Baldwin, both seniors, and freshman 126-pounder Cody Rhoades.

Geneva and Pymatuning Valley each placed two young men on the team. Representing the Eagles are senior Tyler Cross (145) and freshman Connor Requa (113). The Lakers are represented by state qualifier Mitch Skleres, a freshman at 113 pounds and senior Austin O’Baker (195).

Senior Joey Baitt (132) of Jefferson and sophomores Isaiah Ngiraingas (120) of Conneaut, both state qualifiers, and sophomore Tanner Perry (113) of Edgewood round out the selections.
