WILMINGTON, Ohio - The Wilmington College wrestling team heads into the third and final week of OAC competition as the Fightin' Quakers once again travel to Ada, Ohio to battle Otterbein University, and Ohio Northern University.
The Schedule: Competition will begin at 1 p.m. on Sunday, February 7.
The Teams: The Fightin' Quakers will take on OAC opponents, Otterbein and ONU. The Cardinals fell to nationally-ranked foes Baldwin Wallace University and John Carroll University on opening weekend while Muskingum has yet to compete this season.
The Coaches: Justin Kihn enters his third season as the Head Coach for the Quakers. Kihn comes to Wilmington after graduating and being an assistant coach at Heidelberg University. As an athlete, Khin was Ohio Athletic Conference (OAC) Wrestler of the Year his senior year, as well as Academic All-American and Division III All-American. He finished fourth nationally (in the 141-pound weight class) at the NCAA Championships.
The Players: The Fightin' Quakers return two upperclassmen from a year ago. Patrick Kelley (165-pound weight class), Junior from Kettering, Ohio, Kettering Fairmont High School, and Adrian Salamone (157-pound weight class), Sophomore from Bainbridge, Ohio, Paint Valley High School. Kihn also adds five other freshmen for the weekend. Jack Probus (133-pound weight class), Jacob Scoville (141-pound weight class), Avery Bair (165-pound weight class), Elijah Wood (174-pound weight class), Skyler Cowgill (184-pound weight class), Shadrach Brausch (285-pound weight class). Wilmington declared three victories last weekend as Shadrach Brausch (285 weight class) won both his battles over Baldwin Wallace. Brausch won his first in a 3-1 decision and followed that up with a pin (3:27) in his second. Avery Bair (165 weight class) also joined the party by pinning his second opponent in under a minute.
COVID-19 Precautions: The OAC Presidents made the difficult decision to not allow any fans at athletic contests until at least March 1.
