The Chargers placed 13 wrestlers and had three individual champions as they won the Marion County Invitational.

Edison scored 308 points to finish well ahead of Nelsonville-York (279) and Apple Creek Waynedale (278) to win the 17-team Invite.

Dylan Burns was named Most Valuable Wrestler. Others winning titles were Casey Barnett and Ray Adams.

Barnett won the 106-pound title in dominant fashion on Day 2 of the two-day tournament. He opened with a fall in 2:14 over Ashland Crestview’s Colton Campbell. He had victories by pin over Troy Christian’s Caleb Schroeder (3:31) and Clyde’s Rush Andres (1:00).

At 113, Adams began with a pin over Ridgedale’s Dakota Jenkins in 55 seconds, followed by a pin over Clyde’s Max Yates (1:31) and Crestview’s Brent Eicher (1:35).

Burns began his Day 2 with a 14-3 major decision over Clyde’s James Batesole, followed by a pin in 3:02 over Huron’s Isaiah Gonzales, and a 9-1 decision over Crestview’s Clay Eagle.

En route to MVW, Burns began the tournament on Friday with three pins over Ellgin’s Austin Pasma (1:13), Clyde’s Alex McKee (2:16) and Upper Sandusky’s Ashton Shepherd (5:11).

In the finals, Stoll dropped a tough 7-4 decision to Upper Sandusky’s Noah Clary in a matchup of a pair of two-time state qualifiers.

Three other Edison wrestlers also finished with one loss over the two days for the Chargers.

Jordan Keegan went 3-0 on Day 1 at 138, then followed up with a 2-1 record on Saturday to go 5-1 over the two days. He dropped a 12-6 decision to Jared Ford’s (Troy Christian) in his last match of the tournament.
