     Four wrestlers from Boardman High School reached the podium at the Kenston Invitational Wrestling Tournament held Dec. 28-29. Antonio Catullo led Boardman finishers, earning a fourth place in the 113 lb. bracket.
      In the 150 lb. division, Boardman’s Max Switka claimed fifth place laurels; while Willy Rankin (132-lb) and Quin Swavel (190-lb) took seventh places in matches both won by pins
      Catullo won four of six matches by pins, but was eliminated in the bout for third place when he dropped a 12-2 major decision to J.J. Strano, of Kenston. Catullo won a pair of matches with early pins, putting Ashton Pfeifer of Ontario HS down in 23 seconds; and Garrett Wiester, of Keystone HS in 30 seconds.

      In their seventh place bouts, Rankin pinned Qwintin Howard, of Crestview HS at the 3:02 mark of their match; and Swavel took down Kevin Howard, of Norwalk HS in 2:39.
      Ontario HS won the Kenston with 229.5 points, while Boardman took 16th place with 84.5 points.
