“I thought our kids wrestled really well tonight. We were very aggressive in every phase of the match. There were things we tried to improve on from our last tournament in Medina, and I thought we did a great job of preparing this week and making those adjustments. It really translated on the mat in a positive manner,” said Ritter.

Wauseon next hosts Whitmer on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. before competing in the Perrysburg Invitational Tournament Friday and Saturday.
