In addition to Fiscus, freshmen Trey Carrington and Ethen Ringer finished fourth in their respective weight classes to advance, and Ryan Fitzsimmons was fifth.

Carrington (16-10) entered sectionals with four straight wins, and he was 2-2 in Sharon, including a 4-3 decision over General McLane’s Ethan Snyder to advance at 127.
