Runnerup Ramsey headed back to Columbus, state tournament


HARRISON — Clinton-Massie’s Kaylee Ramsey will be a back-to-back state qualifier.

The senior 120-pounder finished as runnerup Sunday in the Harrison Regional Girls Wrestling Championship tournament at Harrison High School.

Wilmington’s Mia Skinner is a state alternate at 105 pounds. She was fifth in the regional tournament.

Ramsey lost her championship match at 120 pounds to xxxxxx, defending state champion from Harrison.

“This was the second time Kaylee met up with her this season,” CM coach Cindy Running said. “And while losing is not fun, facing excellence and not backing down teaches fortitude and resillience. Kaylee has definitely developed that. She does not back down to anyone.”

For most girls wrestlers, the district tournament is the end of the season, which happened to be the first official full-team season in OHSAA history.

“This season has been so rewarding,” Running said. “Our numbers were small but our progress with those girls who did participate was impressive. We have seen personal growth in both skillset and confidence on our team.

“Even with the success we have had, wrestling has always been kind of a low-profile sport at Clinton-Massie. So girls are not very familiar with it. There are some preconceived ideas that we need to overcome regarding what it is and what it isn’t. We have worked hard this year to highlight what has been going on with our girls team as well as our boys team and we have a few activities planned this spring to try to get some more girls in the gym to try it out and see what they think.”
