  Mike O’Horo Wins Ohio Cadet Wrestling Crown  
  May 18, 2017 Edition  
     Boardman High School sophomore Mike O’Horo notched a first round bye, then bested three wrestlers to capture the 182-lb. Ohio Cadet freestyle wrestling championship last weekend at Otterbein College.
      In the finals, O’Horo faced Canfield High School’s highly-touted Anthony Dalisio. The pair have been sparring partners since youth and junior high wrestling.
      O’Horo moved to a 7-6 lead at the end of the first period; then ;pinned his foe at the midpoint of the second stanza to claim the 182-lb. title.
      With the win, O’Horo gained an automatic berth to ‘Fargo,’ the summer’s biggest mat event in the country that invites state champs from across the United States to the competition. O’Horo has also been invited to wrestle for Team Ohio’s all-star team.
      “Michael wrestled strategically and was really ready for every match at the Cadet championships,’ his coach, Dom Mancini, said.
      Also winning a state title at Otterbein was Gus Sutton, of the Green machine, from Austintown Fitch.
      Also wrestling in the Cadet Tournament were Boardman’s Kelly Williams and Anthony Baglama.
      Williams earned a second place finish in the Greco-style competition at the event.
