While most teams were in state wrestling a few teams went over to Defiance Ohio for there tri-state border wars tournament. The Indiana teams were Eastside, Columbia City, DeKalb, Angola and Woodlan. I would have liked to have a few more placers but we did walk away with 2 champs and a runner up out of the 42 teams there. There were several ranked wrestlers from Ohio and Michigan on hand and the competition was pretty good over all. I would like to congratulations Eastside"s Laik Minnick on his first place finish.
