Miami Trace has dominated South Central Ohio League wrestling for so long, it’s hard to believe any other program has been on top.
But Clinton-Massie sits in the driver’s seat for Saturday’s SCOL wrestling championship at Hillsboro High School.
The tournament is scheduled to begin at 10 a.m. Clinton-Massie, Wilmington and East Clinton will compete in the tournament before joining the Southern Buckeye Athletic & Academic Conference next season.
Clinton-Massie made it through the league’s duals schedule with an unbeaten record. Miami Trace has one loss in league matches.
Wilmington won the first two SCOL league titles in 1969 and 1970 then posted three straights championships 1987-89.
But the Hurricane is a darkhorse, if for no other reason than WHS wrestlers may determine who wins the championship if they are unable to paint the title orange and black.
The Panthers have won four straight SCOL titles and five of the last six crowns. Miami Trace has won 14 of the last 16 championships dating back to the 1990 season.
Including the period of 1993 to 2003 when the SCOL was disband, only Clinton-Massie in 2010 and Washington 2012 have been able to wrestle away the title from Miami Trace.
