Boys Varsity Wrestling · VASJ WRESTLING – Sheridan wins D-III sectional championship; Seyou and Kijauskas make districts


The VASJ wrestlers performed well on Feb. 25 at the Division III Independence sectional tournament highlighted by junior heavyweight Pat Sheridan, who took the sectional title with a dramatic pin.

Sheridan pinned Josh Stasek of Independence with 9 seconds left in the match while trailing, 8-6. Sheridan advanced to the D-III districts at Garfield Heights as sectional champ with his 26th win of the season.

In addition, Vikings wrestlers King Seyou and Kiras Kijauskas will compete in the D-III Garfield Heights district tournament after qualifying at the sectionals.

Seyou  – a junior – took fourth in a very difficult 132-pound bracket. Kijauskas, a sophomore, finished third at 195 pounds with a pin in the third-place match.

Freshman Nate Oriani took fifth place at 145 with a major decision, going 2-2 in the tournament. Re’ Williams took fifth at 220. Carl Chaney finished sixth at 138.
