Vincent - Sophomore standout Peyten Kellar has earned another wrestling honor.
Ohio Division II’s top-ranked 126-pounder from Warren High was voted the Gary Glover Most Outstanding Wrestler Award with a 5-0 mark by tournament coaches at last Saturday’s Ohio Coatings Panther Classic at Buckeye Local High.
Kellar (38-3 overall record) defeated D1 16th-ranked Joe Eckleberry of Tri-Valley, 10-2, in the semis. He also beat D3 sixth-ranked Gavin Weaver of Newcomerstown and Jordan Watter of West Allegheny, Pa., 2-1, in the finals. (Watter defeated Weaver, 5-3, in the semis.)
Kellar wasn’t the only Warrior crowned a champion as senior 152–pounder Trent Sayre (41-5) was first in his weight class with a 4-0 mark including a pin of Barnesville’s Cameron Woods in the finals at 4:32. Sayre finished with three matslappers in the tourney.
Warren senior Dylan Anderson (182 pounds, 30-12) finished in fourth place and sophomore Cole Coleman (113, 4-1) fifth at the event.
Also wrestling for the Warriors were junior Hayden Wiggers (120, 3-20), senior Ben Goedel (138, 27-16), senior Tristan Duffey (145, 29-15), junior Brady Oberdier (160, 14-7), sophomore Brock Bowen (160, 19-21), senior Liam Kellar (170, 17-6), sophomore Zach Ochumpaugh (170, 3-15), junior Kaleb Tait (220, 19-21), and sophomore Jake Welch (285, 14-23).
