Rockets win 21st League Championship
Preseason predictions proved to be wrong this past weekend.  Between the media and coaches votes, the Rockets were projected to finish third and second.  Neither one of those happened, Oak Harbor finished in first without leaving any doubt who the best team was.
As a team the Rockets took home first place and as individuals nobody finished lower than third place.
Five individuals won league titles.  Bruce Hrynciw started off the title list with a technical fall in the 113lb weight class to claim his second straight SBC title.  Senior Jeremy Balboa would gather up a title at 138lbs, along with his 100th career victory, by defeating his Perkins opponent 7-4.  Junior Rhett Petersen took first at 145lbs with a heads up reversal in the last moments of his match, earning him his first league title.  Ben Petersen would win his first league title at 152lbs by defeating another Perkins opponent, 6-3.  The last Rocket to win a title was Stephen Simkus at 182lbs.  He major decisioned his opponent from Clyde, 12-1.
Sophmore Dylan Mansor (120lbs) and Junior Brandon Garber (Hwt) reached the finals but came up short taking second.
Six more Rocket wrestlers finished the day out with wins, earning them third place finishes; Nick Bergman, Trevor Scherf, Brody Hennig, Kian Thompson, Dylan Thorp and Peyton Salyers.
Congrats to these guys and good luck at the Sectional Tournament at Oak Harbor next Weekend!!

Junior High 3rd at SBC Tournament

The Oak Harbor Jr. High wrapped up its season this past Saturday at the SBC Tournament held at the Oak Harbor High School. This year the Rockets finished 3rd behind Clyde and champion Perkins. The Rockets would, however, crown 4 individual champions. Matthew Dewitz led the charge at 88 lbs by pinning his Clyde opponent and finishing the season 23-2.  Next up was 106 lbs Cam Dickman who beat his Clyde opponent 12-7 finishing his season 30-1. Sam Lattea captured the 144 lbs title in dramatic fashion beating his Perkins opponent in the last seconds of the ultimate tiebreaker finishing his season 19-10. The last Champion to be crowned would be 174 lbs Jacob Sage who pinned his Edison opponent in less than 1 min finishing his season at 24-4. Three other Rockets would also end up in the finals but fall short: Tad Jensen (100), Zac Helle (152), and Keaton Platzke (207) each took home runner up honors. Nate Mansor (94) and Zac Losie (124) each placed 3rd, while Trent Overmyer (112), Riley Meek (118) and Alex Marquez (136) each took 4th place. The Rockets finished the season 9-5 in dual competition.
