MIDDLETOWN — Eaton locked up its sixth-straight Southwestern Buckeye League Southwestern Division title, while Preble Shawnee came up a point shy of winning the program’s first-ever league championship during the SWBL wrestling meet Friday and Saturday, Feb. 17-18 at Middletown Madison High School.
Eaton won the Southwestern Division with 159.5 points and finished third overall.
Shawnee placed second overall with 163 points, but one spot behind Buckeye Division and overall league champion Milton-Union, who scored 164 points.
“We’re very pleased but not satisfied,” Eaton coach Mark Silvers said of winning the SW Division title. “Really, they performed up to their level all the way through.”
Eaton and Preble Shawnee each had one champion.
Coleman Manning won the Eagles’ title with a pin of Preble Shawnee’s Travis Tatum in the 132 pound final, while the Arrows’ Camron Neal defeated Eaton’s Wade Monebrake, 5-0, in the 120 pound weight class.
Eaton’s Isaac Ilo was second at 160 and Preble Shawnee’s Tanner Crabtree placed second at 195.
“It was an awesome tournament,” Preble Shawnee coach Jake Follick said. “You look at the end result and you’re kind of saddened by that. We knew it was in the grasps. I knew it was going to be close. I’m nothing but proud of these kids, the way that they performed.”
