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 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.

Vincent - Trent Sayre will be donning the maroon and gold after prep graduation.

The Warren High senior cross country and track standout is scheduled to sign a National Letter of Intent at 2:30 p.m. Friday afternoon in the Warriors gymnasium to continue his academic and running careers at the University of Charleston in Charleston, W.Va.

“Through running, I know that the University of Charleston can offer me a home away from home,” said Sayre, who is currently competing in the 152-pound weight class on the Jim Rhodes-coached Warren wrestling team.

Sayre is planning to major in radiological science at UC.

The University of Charleston is an NCAA Division II school and a member of the Mountain East Conference (MEC). The Golden Eagle harriers and thinclads are coached by Nick Bias.

In the spring, UC’s track and field teams’ home meets are at University of Charleston Stadium, formerly Laidley Field. The maroon and gold thinclads often compete against Marietta College.

Warren Football Hires Matt Kimes

Matt KimesWarren Football Hires Matt Kimes

Vincent - Matt Kimes knows a thing or two about winning.

And that should be beneficial to the Warren High football program in the fall.

The 39-year-old Kimes was introduced to the players, parents and school staff as the Warriors’ new head football coach in a Tuesday 3 p.m. afternoon press conference in the WHS cafeteria.

“I couldn’t be more excited and thankful for the opportunity to lead the Warren Warrior football program,” Kimes said. “Since I began coaching over 15 years ago, it has been my goal to become a head coach and I feel that I am ready to make it a reality.

“We will continue to focus on not only building a program but building a culture that the entire community will be proud of and team that will contend in southeastern Ohio.”

Kimes is succeeding Dan Day, who accepted the head coaching position at Seton Hill University, his alma mater, late last year. He will also assume the duties of Assistant Athletic Director with specific responsibilities for managing facilities and external operations at Warren.

Kimes will become Warren’s 22nd head football coach in the program’s 59-year history and the 11th one at the helm since the turn of the century.

Warriors Defeat South

Seth DennisWarriors Defeat South

Vincent - Warren High earned some hard-fought payback.

After falling at Parkersburg South earlier in the season, the Warriors turned the tables on the visiting Patriots with a 68-63 triumph in boys’ basketball action Tuesday night.

“It’s sweet revenge,” said WHS head coach Blane Maddox. “We’re happy to get this victory. And all Warren games are emotional.”

Seth Dennis and Noah Nichols were a one-two punch for the Warriors (13-6) with 20 and 19 points, respectively. Clay Miller added 11 points and eight rebounds, while Brandon Simoniette and Austin Barta each had seven markers.

“We usually have four guys in double figures, but it looks like we got three tonight,”Maddox said.

Mike Fallon-coached South (6-13) was paced by Malaki Sylvia’s 23 points and 10 rebounds.

“He’s a handful,” said Maddox of 6-foot-3 Sylvia. “We did a real good job on him last time, but they focused on him a lot, and they got a lot of shooters outside — and they’ve got a penetrator (Seth Fallon) who can give him the ball where he needs to get it. They played off each other very well.”

Lady Warriors Fall to Meigs

Vincent - Warren High suffered a meltdown after the break.

While the host Warriors scored just 7 second-half points, Meigs High rallied from an 11-point deficit to claim a 48-38 decision in girls’ basketball action Thursday night.

“We shot the ball terrible,” said WHS head coach Amy Colgrove, whose royal blue and white cagers were 2 of 24 from the field in the second half. “I mean, we couldn’t make any shots and we weren’t moving the basketball.

“They (Marauders) didn’t do or change anything to make us not to be able to score. We had some layups we missed and some other easy shots that we were hitting in the first half. They just didn’t go in in the second half.”

Warren (11-7) shot 27 percent (14 of 52) from the floor in the contest. Sommer Saboley led the Warriors with eight points. Molly Grayson and Madison Miller each chipped in with six markers.

Senior-oriented Meigs (14-6) was paced by freshman non-starter Mallory Hawley’s 17 points.

“You know, Mallory gets plenty of minutes,” said Meigs boss Jared Kasun, who played his prep ball at Fort Frye. “When you get 28 minutes a game, you’re pretty much a starter.”
