Oak Hill will send five wrestlers to semistate, but each of them will have a difficult road. Golden Eagles seniors Cody Staggs (30-6), Jared Wallace (29-7) and Thomas Linna (19-7) and sophomores Riley Johnson (23-15) and Ethan Bowland (20-14) each finished in fourth place in their weight classes. Staggs and Bowland were sectional title winners at 120 and 285, respectively.

Semistate will be contested Saturday at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum, Fort Wayne. Carroll (Fort Wayne), Goshen and Jay County regionals will feed into the tournament. The first matches are scheduled to start at 9 a.m.
