Wrestling: 15 Bobcats place at Ohio Intercollegiate Open

Ohio added another tournament to its schedule and traveled to Tiffin for the Ohio Intercollegiate Open on Sunday. The Bobcats had a strong afternoon, with 15 wrestlers placing. Of those 15 wrestlers who placed Sunday, seven were freshmen who have gotten off to strong starts to their careers. 

The first two Bobcats to place were freshman Dierre Clayton and redshirt sophomore Oscar Sanchez, both of whom placed fifth in their respective divisions. Clayton, who placed fourth in his division the previous week in East Lansing, has now placed for the second time in his first two tournaments as a Bobcat. Tommy Hoskins then placed fourth in the 125-pound Gold Division, marking the first time he has placed as a Bobcat.

The first division winner for Ohio on Sunday came from Gio DiSabato in the 133-pound Gold Division. DiSabato took down Dylan Koontz from Ohio State in the final seconds to take the first-place match. Kyran Hagan was also in a first-place match against a Buckeye, Dylan D’Emilio, but his result wasn’t the same as DiSabato’s. Hagan lost a close final match in the 141-pound Gold Division to place second. 

There were then six Bobcats who placed third at the tournament, as freshman Garrett Thompson, freshman Bobby Gaylord, redshirt sophomore Jordan Slivka, freshman Sal Perrine, sophomore Jordan Greer and redshirt junior Jordan Earnest won their third-place matches. This is the second time that Thompson, Slivka, Perrine and Greer all placed this season.

Alec Hagan also placed for the second time this season, as he lost his first-place match to Sammy Sasso from Ohio State. His comeback season is off to a very strong start in terms of not only him placing in these tournaments but also his leadership to a young Bobcats team. The final wrestlers who placed for Ohio were Peyten Kellar and Colt Yinger, who both placed second, and Zayne Lehman, who won the 184-pound Gold Division. Lehman is off to a phenomenal start as a Bobcat, as he now has placed first in his first two tournaments with Ohio.
