Tyrone Keeton was the first state qualifier in 10 years for the West Carrollton Wrestling Program. Tyrone wrestled well on Thursday but came up short in two great matches.
Tyrone’s first match was against eventual 3rd place finisher Elijah Hunter of Sandusky. Tyrone fought hard throughout the first period but the height of Hunter and his long arms resulted in a cradle and pin in his favor.
Tyrone now found himself in one of the most difficult rounds in HS Wrestling, the first round consolations at State. Up against Cooper Krauth of Revere, Tyrone managed a few takedowns but a desperate shot near the end of the match did not go our way and Krauth was victorious as Tyrone was eliminated from competition.
There were over 125 wrestlers entered at 132lbs this post season and Tyrone finished in the top 16! Congrats to Tyrone on a great season!
As the season wraps up, more all-area recognition’s will be announced. Look for another article in the coming weeks that features all end of season awards and records for the Pirates!
