For St. Edward, St. Paris Graham win Ohio Duals Invitational ? Results and many other topics visit

St. Edward won its 12th Division I state dual meet championship Sunday, defeating Massillon Perry, 34-16, in the championship of the eight-team, three-round tournament at Wadsworth High School.* They also beat Mayfield (54-18) and Cincinnati Elder (50-10).

"This is very important because our team had a poor start this season with guys missing because of injuries and the [football] playoffs," sophomore 119-pounder Dean Heil, one of seven Eagles who were 3-0 on the day. "Perry is one of the main teams we're competing against and this shows we're the top team at the moment."

Perry was more impressive when it knocked off Wadsworth, 28-21, in an action-packed semifinal. Wadsworth was the two-time defending champion, and while that reign ended, so did its 37-dual meet winning streak, which dated back to December 2008.

Division II: Walsh Jesuit beat Crestwood, 40-32, for third place in the Division II tournament at St. Paris Graham, where the host Falcons rolled to the team title.

No. 7 seed Crestwood upset No. 2 Oak Harbor in the first round, 35-34, while No. 4 Walsh opened with a 38-30 win over Wauseon. Both local teams lost in the semifinals, Crestwood to Olentangy, 33-29, and Walsh to St. Paris Graham, 45-25.

In Division III, Chanel won the state title with a 39-27 finals triumph against West Jefferson at Metamora Evergreen High School.
