The OHSAA State Wrestling Tournament concluded Saturday evening and two Licking Valley wrestlers earned their way onto the podium.
Senior Anthony Moran capped his LV wrestling career by earning a 7th place finish in the 170 pound weight class. His tournament record was 3-2 with losses to the eventual state champion and the sixth place finisher.
Junior Jake Martinez won his first three matches without allowing his opponents to score a single point. This earned Jake the opportunity to wrestle for the state title. The title match did not go Jake’s way and he finished runner-up in the 138 pound weight class.
Jake and Anthony, along with Addison Fogle and Ethan Fout who did not make the finals, all represented Licking Valley very well at the state tournament. Thank you to them for all of their hard work and sacrifice.
