Staff report

The Tallmadge wrestling team warmed up for the Suburban League tournament Jan. 26 by competing in the Josh Hephner Memorial Tournament at Austintown Fitch High School.

According to Blue Devils head coach Jason Shaw, Tallmadge finished 20th in the 30-team field at Fitch as Tallmadge was without the services of senior 170-pounder Troy Sticker and junior 145-pounder Danny Amato.

The Blue Devils' top finisher was senior 195-pounder Jake Wiegand, who placed sixth. Wiegand finished with four wins, including three pins, at the tournament.

Sophomore 220-pounder Travis Darago also reached the podium in seventh place, despite giving up nearly 30 pounds to most of his opponents.

Shaw noted freshmen 113-pounder Alex McGraw and 132-pounder Alex Potok each won two matches at the Hephner.

Tallmadge was set to participate in the Suburban League Tournament Feb. 2 at Green, but results were not available at press time.

The Blue Devils are scheduled to close out the regular season Feb. 7 at Stow-Munroe Falls at 6 p.m.
