After one of the best seasons in modern school his¬tory, the Kent State wrestling team plans to continue to raise its standards. Two local wrestlers are part of the picture to do so.

Redshirt freshman Keith Witt (Oak Harbor) is getting plenty of action at 174, and Ryan Buckner (Woodmore) is competing for a chance to represent the Golden Flashes at 197.

“Our young guys have to develop the way that we think they can and our older guys have to continue developing like they have. Right now, expectations on the outside are that we're a top 20 team, but our goal is to be a top 10 team at the end of the year," Kent State coach Jim Andrassy said.

Witt went 4-1 at the Body Bar with three first period pins and is currently ranked third in the MAC. He is second on the team with five pins. Witt earned his way into the semifinals at both the Oklahoma Gold and the Hokie Open, where he won his first four matches and upset top-seeded and nationally ranked Bagna Tovuujav of George Mason.
