Dennis Raber = Champion
Wouldn't be an Orrville championship if it didn't have tons of heart-stopping drama.
In a thrilling triple overtime match, Dennis defeated Nick Leforce of Carlisle by a 4-3 score to win the 160 lb. weight class in Division 3.
He becomes the 3rd state champ in Orrville wrestling history, joining Shane Hartzler (1996) and the late Jack Leeder (1985).
He was also the first champion from Wayne County since 2007 (David Stiltner, Waynedale).
