Redskin wrestlers rout Kenton; now 4-0 in WBL

The Wapakoneta wrestling team must feel like a marathon runner that has to train by running only two miles a day.
The Redskin grapplers upped their Western Buckeye League record to 4-0 with a lopsided 53-24 win over Kenton, but they were only able to wrestle five matches. The visiting Wildcats voided seven weight classes, and the Redskins voided three. With a double void at 145 pounds that left only five actual matches. Last week against Shawnee there were only eight matches out of 14 weight classes and it was the same the week before against Van Wert.
“These guys don’t like it when they get a forfeit,” commented Wapak head coach Jason Rostorfer. “They may act light hearted when they go out there (to be declared the winner of the match), but after weigh-ins they are not happy. They’ve worked hard at practice all week and they want to go out and compete.”
