The Bison wrestling team had a very successful weekend at the CVC tournament at Perry on Feb. 4. The team had four placers.

Senior Josh Bialosky had an amazing performance. In the championship round, he defeated Spencer Fleming of Chagrin Falls in 4:29 in the 182 lb. weight class.

Bialosky pinned his way through the tournament and was unanimously voted conference MVP. No one else was even nominated.

“I have taken 2nd for the past three years, so it feels great to finish out on top,” Bialosky said.

Bialosky’s finals match put him at 35 wins at the season, 15 wins behind Ryan Harris for the Beachwood single season record of 50 wins and 137 career wins.

Sophomore Michael Schmidt put up a cinderella-like tournament. Schmidt was unranked going into the tournament and was in the most populous weight class.

I have taken 2nd for the past three years, so it feels great to finish out on top.”

— Senior Captain Josh Bialosky

Schmidt pinned Harvey’s 2nd seed Luis Arredondo in 2:26. He then had a major decision in his next match by a score of 10-2, and had a tough-fought match in the semifinals, which Schmidt ultimately won.

Schmidt fell short in the finals and placed 2nd. The 132 lb. weight class was so large and tough that the tournament organizers were forced to cancel matches for 3rd/4th and 5th/6th place and call them ties due to the OHSAA rule that wrestlers can not compete in more than five matches per day.

Senior Matt Henry placed 4th in the 170 lb weight class, losing only to Geneva Senior Juan Rodriguez. Henry wore a face mask due to a nose injury suffered prior to the tournament, which made him more intimidating to opponents.

Freshman Dawann Grey placed 6th.

The team placed 12th overall with 68.0 points.

The team’s performance was particularly impressive given the challenges faced this season.

Several starters are benched due to injuries, including a team captain.

Beachwood hosts the sectional tournament on Saturday, Feb. 25.
