And that’s a wrap on the 2022-2023 high school wrestling season! As the state’s best grapplers got together in Columbus over the weekend, we got to see so many great YSN athletes compete. Last season YSN only crowned 1 state champion at the end of the year, but this year we get to praise 3. The first state champion came from Louisville as Dominic Hoffarth went back to back winning another trophy. Both of the others came from the same program in Garrettsville Garfield. The G-Men had never had a state champion before Sunday, and after Sunday they got 2. Hunter Andel, and Keegan Sell both brought home the big trophy.
In this final episode of Wrestling Wednesdays with Gary Althiser of the year, we brought on both Andel and Sell to talk about bringing home their program’s first state championship. They also talk about how much they push each other, and what this will do for the future of Garfield wrestling. Gary also recaps all of YSN’s performances down in Columbus as we put a bow on a great wrestling season.
