At the beginning of the wrestling season, Lexington coach Brent Rastetter said the goal for his team this season was to finish as state runner-up in Division II to defending D-2 state champion and national power St.Paris Graham. The stretch run for that begins this weekend with the Division II sectionals at Medina where Lexington is a heavy favorite. The Minutemen will be competing with 11 other schools Bay, Brookside, Buckeye, Clear Fork, Clearview, Fairview, Firelands, Keystone, Madison, Vermilion and Rocky River.

Despite being the favorite Rastetter says his squad is taking nothing for granted expecting the biggest competition for a sectional title coming from Madison. Lex will be led by Brandon Leynaud at 132, Chuck Mikelait at 138, Jon Watkins at 145, Drew Kasper at 182, Bailey Faust at 220 and at 285 Nate Temple. The top four wrestlers in each weight class will advance to the Division II district at Mansfield Senior next week. Rastetter is hoping to get anywhere from six to eight wrestlers to advance to state competition in two weeks at Ohio State. The state wrestling meet will run March 12, 13th and 14th.
