Boys Varsity Wrestling · North wrestling team wins OCC crown


The Westerville North wrestling team earned an OCC championship with a 44-21 win over host Delaware on Feb. 4, 2021.

“What it means is that the guys have done a good job all year of focusing on our goals,” said coach David Grant. “The goal is always to win the league title, so one goal accomplished and move on to the next one.

“Malania (Szawranskyj’s) win was probably the highlight of the night. The guys loved it and they see how hard she’s worked all year long. And we had a couple of exciting pins tonight.”

The league title was the Warriors’ ninth overall and Grant’s fifth.

Other winners for the Warriors were: Christian Hunt (106), Evan Butcher (113), Gabe Ohle (120), Jake Gooding (126), Edwin White (132), Nate Morse (145), Connor Euton (152), Nico Candido (182) and Mitchell Gillam (220).
