Four members of the Junior Aurora Wrestling team qualified for the Ohio Athletic Committee 2020 grade school state wrestling championships.

The state competition, which was scheduled to take place March 28, was canceled due to a deadly respiratory tract infection known as the coronavirus.

The four wrestlers advanced after placing in the top two in their respective weight classes during a district tournament March 1 in East Liverpool.

Jack Jastal was the district champion in the 55-pound weight class and Luke Fontana (132), Mason Giambrone (80) and Hunter Sabatino (67) were the runners-up in their respective weight divisions.
