BLANCHESTER — Wilmington won the final bout of the day by forfeit and earned the county championship Wednesday with a 42-40 win over Blanchester in the County Quad title match at the BHS gym.

Blanchester took a 40-36 lead when Dylan Short won by forfeit at 150 pounds but then the Wildcats forfeited the final match of the day to Gage Davis to give Wilmington the win.

In all seven of the 14 matches were forfeits.

Clinton-Massie defeated East Clinton 42-30 in the consolation match to take third place. As always, early season matches for the Falcons are skewed with the lack of football players on the team.

”I thought we learned a lot from this quad,” CM head coach Spencer Running said. “Wilmington has an impressive team and it’s clear that they are going to be one of the frontrunners in the SBAAC again this year. It hurt not having some of the football players but some of the younger wrestlers got some good experience tonight. We’re very excited moving forward.”

Kelly Tolliver, head coach of the champion Hurricane, said a couple of wrestlers stood out.

“Paul McKnight wrestled well even though he lost the Blan match,” Tolliver said. “Putting things together and better chain wrestling. Ty Stuckey at 106, good start, first varsity win. Technically sound.”

Tolliver noted his squad is battling through some injuries and a few wrestlers are still looking to reach their expected weight class, so the win here is especially sweet.

“And we’ll use this momentum for all it’s worth,” he said.
