BIDWELL, Ohio — The River Valley wrestling program had two wrestlers earn weight class titles Wednesday at the 2013 Ohio Valley Conference championships held at River Valley High School in Gallia County.
Only three teams took part in the event, which meant that the tri-match would not count towards crowning a league champion this winter. By OVC rules, at least two-thirds of the league must participate in order for a conference championship to be awarded.
Chesapeake won the tri-match and had seven of the 14 weight class champions, followed by Fairland with five and RVHS with two.
Both of the Raider champions, however, are repeat winners from a year ago, as senior Paul Reynolds and junior Trae Cornell each brought home their second consecutive crowns. Reynolds came away with the 138-pound title, while Trae Cornell earned the 145-pound championship.
Chesapeake received titles from Logan McCloud (106), Sawyer Stevens (120), Shawn Johnson (152), Dylan Maynard (170), Nick Lucas (182), Jaycob Kitchen (220) and Cole Webb (285).
Fairland champions included Austin Earls (113), Timmy Emery (126), Jordan Holmann (132), Clayton Edmonds (160) and Zach McKinney (195).
