It was a tough end to a remarkable run for the Wooodridge wrestling team.
Seventh-seeded Woodridge lost 57-10 to second-seeded Wauseon Feb. 12 in the quarterfinals of the Division II state dual team tournament at St. John Arena in Columbus.
Woodridge ended up with wins in only three individual bouts against the Indians, who looked deserving of their No. 2 seed.
Wauseon opened with 106-pounder Gavin Ritter pinning Cambell Corfman in 54 seconds, followed by 113-pounder McKaylaCampbell scoring a 13-4 major decision over Woodridge's Micah Blair. Campbell is nationally ranked in girls wrestling.
Woodridge then saw 120-pounder Brandon Reeves get thrown and pinned in 44 seconds by Nolan Ray.
That left it 126-pounder David Massey to get the Bulldogs on the board. He did so with a 10-3 win over Jarrett Bischoff.
Indians state qualifier Hunter Yackee droppped to 132 pounds. Yackee pinned Woodridge's David Genovese in 4:22.
Woodridge 138-pounder Eli Yoho then scored a 5-3 decision win.
Wauseon then put the match out of reach with three straight wins, as state runner-up Sandro Ramirez scored a 20-5 technical fall, 152-pounder Xavier Torres upset Isaac Yoho 3-2 and 160-pounder Andrew Bailey pinned in 1:57.
At 170 pounds, Spencer Robinson got Woodridge's only bonus points of the match, as he scored an 11-3 major decision over Trent Davis.
Wauseon brought it home by winning the final four matches. Indians 182-pounder Aaron Harris (18 seconds), 195-pounder Tony Banister (1:27) and heavyweight Alex Sosa (4:56) each scored pins, while 220-pounder Sammy Sosa survived a back-and-forth match with Woodridge's Jack Kerlee to win 13.11
