Ohman won, 4-3. – Submitted photo WAUPUN – Senior Erik Ohman of Plymouth captured the 152-pound championship in the East Central Conference Wrestling Tournament here Saturday.

Ohman edged Ripon’s Brady Kissinger, 4-3, in the finals. Ohman advanced to the title match with a 10-4 decision over Campbellsport’s Paul Guelig in the semifi- nals.

The PHS Panthers finished fourth in the seven-team tourney with 146 points. Campbellsport repeated as the champion with 232, followed by Ripon at 201½.

PHS had one runner-up finisher in sophomore Josh Koll at 138. Koll lost, 5-0, to Kewaskum’s Alex Deheck in the finals. Koll also took second in last year’s tourney.

The Panthers’ other place-winners included: third – Jack Miller at 106, Will Birkholz at 126, Pablo Lopez, 132 and Gabe Haun at 285; fourth – Andrew Steinhardt at 113, Nathan Francis, 145 and Forrest Spring, 170; fifth – Jack Nytes, 220; and sixth – Kyle Schwibinger at 182.

“We fell just short of our goal of placing in the top three. We were missing three of our starters due to injury and illness, and that played a major factor in the overall team score,” said Panther head coach Ben Chapman.

“The highlight of the day was Erik Ohman winning his first conference championship. He had a great day of wrestling and wrested very smart and technically sound all day. He truly deserved this championship.

“Josh Koll made it to the championship match as well but came up just a little short of capturing his own championship. Josh kept it close the whole time and lost in a hard-fought battle,” said Chapman.

“Jack Miller and Will Birkholz also wrestled very well today. They both wrestled back to the thirdplace match and ended their day with a victory. It is always great to see guys compete hard until the very end.”
