VASJ participated in the very competitive Nordonia JV Battle on Jan. 11.
Billed as the Ohio JV state championships for good reason – plenty of great Division I competition.
*Vikings freshman Aiden Staunton went 0-2, but had two great bouts.
*Freshman Darian Davis also wrestled well, but finished 0-2.
*Sophomore Mack Flynn was 0-2.
*Sophomore Charlie Mullin was 1-2.
*Junior Charlie Stachnik went 1-2.
*Sophomore Titus Bates was 0-2, but did hold leads in both loses.
*Joe Webb went 2-2 after making the semifinals at 160 lbs.
*Junior Eddie Marxen finished 1-2 at 182 lbs.
*Junior Josh Longstreet went 1-2, but also lead in every match. Longstreet moved to 220 lbs to make room for sophmore Paulie Paciorek at 195 lbs, who went 1-2.
*Sean Doley also bumped up to 285 lbs to make room for the upper weights to compete. Doley went 1-2.
