Competing in the 113-pound weight division, Wellville High School’s Ware earned his third tournament championship this season at the Burlington Invitational Saturday. He kept his record a spotless 13-0 by beating the top 113 3A wrestler in the state, Eureka’s Kolby Britt, by a 5-4 decision. He was awarded Outstanding Wrestler for his efforts.
Overall, Wellsville had a strong weekend wrestling, head coach Kyle Patton, said.
Ethan Ewing earned runner-up in the 126 weight division, improving his record to 8-3. Anthony Signs finished fifth in the 138 weight division to improve to 13-3 on the year, and Chase Farley finished in seventh place.
