3/2/18 - All three Woodmore wrestlers split their two matches on the first day of the Div. III district tournament at Defiance High School to remain alive for a state berth.  Senior Peter Magsig, wrestling in the 182-pound weight class, won his opening match of the tournament with an escape in the last minute of the match to win 1-0 over Nicholas Brown from Ayersville.  In his quarterfinal match, Magsig lost a 12-2 decision to Wil Morrow from Patrick Henry, who was the champion of the Van Buren sectional.  Magsig will begin wrestling on Saturday with a match against Jarett Spoores from Gibsonburg.  At 126 pounds, sophomore Brett Sandwisch won his opening match, 4-1, over Caden Gurney from Mohawk before losing to Dakota Blanton from Ashland Crestview by pin.  Blanton was the champion from the Plymouth sectional.  Sandwisch will wrestle Aidan Fry-Silva from Western Reserve in his first match Saturday.  And senior Tyler Sandwisch, wrestling at 113 pounds, lost by pin in his first match against Reece Mullholand from Carey.  Sandwisch had a 7-1 lead in the third period of the match before losing.  Mullholand was the champion from the Van Buren sectional.  He came back to stay alive in the tournament with a win by pin over Juan Figueroa from Willard.  Three wins Saturday would put any of the three wrestlers in the third-place match which would guarantee a trip to the state tournament next week in Columbus.  Wrestling Saturday gets underway at 9:30.
