Pomeroy wrestlers claim district championship


DAVENPORT — Pomeroy claimed its first district wrestling championship since 1975 here Saturday.

The Pirates, who edged Reardan in the 13-team standings, 178-175, had three of their wrestlers crowned as district champions and will send 10 grapplers to next weekend’s regional tourney at Reardan.

Ryan Smith (160 pounds), Wyatt Jenkins (170), and Austin Reisdorph (220) won district titles by posting 3-0 records in their respective weight classes. All but one of their results were decided by pin.

“All of our kids stepped it up a notch,” Pomeroy coach Brian Slaybaugh said. “I’m proud of all of them. They went out there and gave 110 percent.

“Our seniors led the day,” Slaybaugh said. “Wyatt, Ryan and Austin are pretty tough to beat. Hopefully they will continue to wrestle like they have been.”

Another solid effort was turned in by Adam Herres, who finished second at 145 pounds.

“He shocked the whole bracket,” Slaybaugh said. “He’s just a freshman. He came in (to tournament action as the) seventh or eighth seed. He had an outstanding day.”

Clayton King (113) and Wyatt Hyer (145) were third individually, Steven Wysocki (126) and Havin Heytvelt (138) were fourth, Taylor Lewis was fifth, and Jack Neice (120) was sixth.

Seventh-place finishers Blaine Reisdorph (152), Kyle Hyer (160), and Tyler King (170) will be alternates to the regional tournament.
