TRAC wrestling: Findlay's Staschiak, Opp reach title matches
OREGON -- A pair of Findlay High School wrestlers fell in the championship round as the Trojans ended up fourth in the Three Rivers Athletic Conference wrestling championships at Oregon Clay on Saturday.

Host Oregon Clay and Toledo Central Catholic ran away from the rest of the field. The Eagles, the No. 6 team in the latest Division I coaches poll, outscored the Irish 238-185 for first place. Toledo St. John's topped the Trojans 97-92 for third place.

Jimmy Staschiak and Tyler Opp reached the championship match for Findlay.

Staschiak made the 132-pound final but fell to Gavin Nelson, one of eight Oregon Clay champions, 17-0.

Opp, meanwhile, dropped a tough 7-4 decision to Toledo St. Francis' Shelton Evans in the 170-pound title bout.

Both Findlay wrestlers earned second-team all-TRAC honors with their finish.

Matt Stockard (145), Ian Silette (182) and Marcus Winklejohn (195) each finished third to make the TRAC honorable mention list.

Justin Jolliff (120) and Tony Kalani (152) added fourth-place finishes for the Trojans.
