Powerhouses Cincinnati Elder and Massillon Perry were solid en route to capturing the top two spots, but Olentangy and host Hayes also had a handful of highlights during Saturday’s Rieman Invitational in Delaware.

The Braves were boosted by Jacob Sherman and Xander Gore. Sherman won the title in the 113-pound class, getting the job done with a 5-0 win over Coffman’s Kyle Murray in the championship. Gore, meanwhile, picked up first-place points at 145. He edged Fremont Ross’ Lamonte Chapman 4-3 in his championship showdown.

The Pacers were powered by Jacob McCloskey, who finished fourth at 182; Zach Williams, who closed fifth at 132; and Corbin May, who was fourth at 160.

Elder took the top spot with 252.5 points. Perry nabbed runner-up honors with 249.5 points and Harrison smoothed out the top three with a team total of 233.5.

Olentangy, which piled up 137.5 points thanks in part to its pair of individual champs, finished sixth behind Dublin Coffman and Hilliard Davidson.

Hayes finished 13th.
