Tiger Wrestling and Swimming Take on Regionals


WSTX Sports Logo Square

Hello Tiger Nation! St.X may off be school today, but a few student athletes will still be putting in work throughout the day. The Tiger Wrestling and Swimming & Diving teams both have their respective Regional Championships today. First, we will be taking a look at the lineup for the WRASTLERS:

Region 4 Seeding (Based on Feb. 2nd Rankings from KentuckyWrestling.com):
106 – Nathan Ohlmann – 4th
113 – Josh Schmidt – 1st
120 – Nate Wheeler – 1st
126 – Austin Cook – 1st
132 – Kaden Darbro – 3rd
138 – Konner Kraeszig – 1st
145 – Clayton Hanson – 1st
152 – Dallas Miles – 2nd
160 – Cameron Ward – 1st
170 – Austin Towles – 3rd
182 – Zach Cummella – 3rd
195 – Justin Voelker – 5th
220 – Ben Deprest – 2nd
285 – Isaac Marret – 1st

With no individual ranked outside the Top 5 in their weight class, the Tigers look to dominate Region 4. The team that is closest to the Tigers, who are ranked #2 in the state, would be Male, who is ranked #17 in the state, respectively.

Moving on to the Tiger Swimming & Diving team. It’s business as usual for the Tiger Sharks who look to shred the competition in their region. Their ultimate goal will be to win a national record 29th consecutive title, so Regionals will just be a stepping stone to that goal. Let’s look at those competing today:

Diving (competed Wednesday) – Blake Ansert and Kellen Murphy have secured spots in the State Meet as they placed 1st and 2nd, respectively. Mason Brown and Isaac Sostriach also placed in the Top 5 of the diving competition, but will have to wait until results from every region to see if they can slide in to the State Meet.

Seniors: Martin Nitzken, Keefer Barnum, Jack Harty, Peter Hurst, Chris Hurst, Patrick Baty

Juniors: Michael Eastman, Aldan Johnston, Dominic Tomchek, Cole Brown, Conner Lynn, Bailey Cox, Dane Rueff, Ryan Kitchen, Evan Smith

Sophomores: Grant Largen, Bdandt Wilhelmi, Griffin Kirsch, Michael Jones, Ramsey Knotts, Harrison Smith, Brevik Heitmann, Andrew Streater

Freshman: Conner Kang, Tom Irvine, Bennett Clark, Stephen Root, Will Cole, Kenton Whiteley, Hudson Stoutt
