Genoa Middle School wrestler Maxwell Reeder (seventh grade) competed in a National Wrestling tournament on April 11 in Battle Creek, Mich., where he won the national championship competing with wrestlers from across seven Midwest States.

To qualify for Nationals, Reeder was third at the Northwest Ohio Regional and then he avenged his sole regional loss and was first at the Ohio state tournament. Reeder was also voted the Most Valuable Wrestler of the tournament at the state meet for his age group. Reeder competed in the Division IV age group (13-14) at 86 pounds.


The Ohio tournaments are sponsored by OURWAY (Ohio United Wrestling Association for Youth) and the National is sponsored by NUWAY (National United Wrestling Association for Youth). Genoa varsity coach Dominick D’Emilio says Reeder now has four “giant sculptured eagle trophies” for his efforts (Regional, State, National, and State wrestler of the tournament).
