This is year five of the OHSAA state wrestling dual team tournament. While there is a certain degree of “the usual suspects,” this year’s event has the potential to provide dynamic and competitive dual meets, as well as to see some new teams contend for state tournament victories.
Delta won the first four dual team wrestling state championships in Division III; however, this year they were eliminated in the regional quarterfinal round. As a result, there will be a new champion in the small-school division. On the other hand, four-time defending dual team state champion St. Paris Graham Local is back and strong in Division II; while the Division I state tournament features all three squads to win championships over the four-year history of the event – Brecksville-Broadview Hts., Lakewood St. Edward and Massillon Perry. Those four teams are the only Division I teams to have made it to all five dual team state tournaments.
