KETTERING - Ada sophomore Austin Windle won two matches in the consolation bracket before bowing out on day two of the district Div. III wrestling meet at Kettering Fairmont last weekend.



Friday's scheduled first day of competition was cancelled due to inclement weather, pushing the event back to Saturday and Sunday.

All three Bulldog matmen lost their first match Saturday in the double elimination event. Windle then won his first consolation bracket match in the 160 lb. division to earn a return trip to Trent Arena on Sunday.

He won his second round consolation bout Sunday in overtime, but was eliminated in the consolation bracket third round.

Windle finished the season 41-6.

Bulldog sophomore Dylan Hannah lost his first consolation bracket match at 152 lbs. Saturday to end his season with a fine 28-10 record.

Ada sophomore Jarod Woodland also fell in his initial consolation match at 182 lbs. Saturday to be eliminated. He ended up 9-20.

Ada finished 40th at the 45-team competition with 3.5 points, all compiled by Windle. Troy Christian won the team crown with 135.5 points to edge out

Dayton Christian by 8.5 points.
