Tigers collect dual meet win

Chagrin Falls opened the New Year with a rare dual meet win over visiting Villa Angela-St. Joseph on Friday.

The Tigers won six of nine wrestled matches to down the Vikings, 37-18.

“It’s very rare that we get a dual meet win–we only had one last year and I don’t think we had any the year before that–so to start off our year with a dual meet win against Villa Angela-St. Joe was good,” Chagrin Falls coach Peter Cimoroni said. “Everybody wrestled well.”

Chagrin Falls wrestlers recorded five pins, a forfeit and a major decision in the match.

Leonardo DiPadova (106) Alex Maciech (126), Sam Partain (152), Owen McClintock (182) and Ben Streicher (285) all won by fall. Luke Yopko won by forfeit at 138 and Ronan Fritz secured a 17-3 major decision at 120 pounds.

“We had to go up a few weights,” Cimoroni said. “Our 170, 182 and 195 all went up to 182, 195 and 220 and we got two out of three victories out of that. Sam Sam Partain dominated his opponent and Ronan Fritz did very well. He controlled the match the whole time.”

The Tigers return to action on Friday when they travel to Beachwood.
