State wrestling: Attisano, Campbell win championships; Hendricks, Rhinehart get second


COLUMBUS — Greene County has two more individual OHSAA state wrestling titles after the conclusion of the event Sunday at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus.

Headlining the area results was Ohio history being set by Legacy Christian’s Dillon Campbell. The senior became the 33rd boys wrestler ever to win four consecutive state championships.

Campbell competed at 132 pounds in Division III and pinned Casper Caizzo of Norwalk St. Paul near the end of the first period to secure the championship.

He had a takedown midway through the period and maintained his position on top for the next few seconds. After securing Caizzo’s shoulders, Campbell flipped him on his head and held him down until the official got in position to slap his hand on the mat with eight seconds left in the period.

Campbell won his previous titles in the last three years at 113, 120 and 126.

Right before Campbell’s history making match, his teammate Nathan Attisano won his first ever state title in the 126-pound division. Attisano was in complete control of his win with a 25-10 technical fall result. He had 12 takedowns during the match, doubling his total after each of the three periods while letting C. J. Graham of Procterville Fairland escape each time to continue racking up points.

Legacy Christian as a team finished in third place in the overall standings with 82 points after winning the team title each of the last three years.

In the girls competition, Lily Hendricks of Greeneview finished as the state runner-up at 125 pounds. She was pinned midway through the second period by Lacie Knick of Clayton Northmont in a rematch from the regional final last week.

Akiaya Rhinehart of Fairborn also got the runner-up spot in the 235-pound division. Rhinehart was pinned in the second period at the 3:18 mark after she was driven from a standing position to her back while trailing 2-1 on points.
