by Ken LahmersEditorAurora -- Harmon School wrestlers have had a successful season, and they hope to bask in even more glory this weekend.They have the opportunity to post the school's most victories in a single season.The final regular season match will be Thursday at 4 p.m. at home against Orange and Richmond Heights. The Jaguars then will compete in the annual middle school tourney Saturday at 10 a.m. at the high school.In the week right after winter break, the Jaguars went 6-0 to raise their mark to 16-4 and tie Harmon's all-time record for team victories in a season.On Jan. 11, Harmon beat Chagrin Falls 54-24 and Independence 41-30. On Jan. 13, the locals won four matches to claim the championship at the eight-team Perry Super Quad."We beat Chagrin by a greater margin than in our first meeting, and our team featured a number of new wrestlers in the starting lineup," said coach Paul Frank-mann."Even the Chagrin coaches observed that our team had made a great deal of progress. The victory over Independence was closer because of a very strong Blue Devil lineup in the heavier weights."WINNING two matches were Ryan Cash, Devin Levan, David Steward, Matt Nowak, Brian Wells and Zach Cole. Winning one match each were Sean Cullen, Patrick Houlahan, Dean Ganzhorn, Alex Mac-Pherson and Greg Biben.Frankmann named Wells and Steward as top wrestlers for the triangular match for their solid performances.The coach said Harmon hadn't won the Perry Super Quad in recent years."With the growth allow-ances added in to enable our usually underweight wrest-lers to compete at their weight, we looked forward to filling all but two of the classes," said Frankmann."We thought we had a chance to win the event, and the wrestlers together seized the opportunity in each of the four matches to prevail."Other schools in the Super Quad were Perry, Edgewood Braden, Madison, West Geauga, Orange, Cleveland Heights and Geneva.Harmon opened with a 72-18 victory over Perry, which scored all of its points on forfeits since the Jaguars didn't field a 172-pounder or a heavyweight.Harmon then beat Edgewood 42-27, Madison 37-44 and Geneva in the finals 44-42. In the latter, Frankmann said, "We performed as well as we had all day."Danny McNamara and Cole dominated the field by pinning all four of their opponents. Kyle Brezovec, Tommy Gallagher and Brian Wells also went 4-0.LEVAN AND Houlahan each won three bouts; Cash, Tim Maxwell, Frank Colangelo, Chuck Kihel, Biben, Justin Morrison and Steward each won two."Colangelo's pin in our final match may well have clinched our championship," said Frankmann. "He insisted on wrestling despite two sore shoulders that had been worked on by his two previous opponents."Cash lost two close decisions at 80 pounds in what Frankmann said was "clearly the toughest weight class of the day."One of his losses came against a former youth state champion from Madison. In his match against Geneva, he was caught in a spladle for 5 points in the first period, but wrestled back with seven third period takedowns, leading to back points which secured a 9-7 decision.Cody Rinehart, Nowak and Chad Blackham also won a match each for Harmon."From the first match to the last, Harmon's accomplishments at the super quad were surely the result of a great, whole team effort," said Frankmann. "Every match and every wrestler counted. And so our top wrestler for this event was the team as a whole."E-mail: klahmers@recordpub.comPhone: 330-688-0088 ext. 3155
