Five members of Dublin high school wrestling teams won Division I sectional championships on Feb. 18, and two of those champions are eyeing a possible rematch in the final at 220 pounds in the district tournament.

Scioto senior Wes King, who is 38-4, and Jerome junior Brett Mowery, who is 33-2, met for the first time on Feb. 9 in the Dublin City Championships with King earning a pin with 5 seconds left in a one-point match.

The two were ranked behind Olentangy's Alex Steinmetz (30-9) in the latest area poll and could meet at district, which will be held Friday, Feb. 24, and Saturday, Feb. 25, at Hilliard Darby. The top four finishers in each weight class advance to the state tournament March 1-3 at Ohio State.

"I would love to get another shot at him," said Mowery, whose team finished fifth (112 points) behind champion Marysville (257) in the Marysville sectional. "The last time I had an escape and he reversed me. I tried to get out and got flipped on my back."

King was a state qualifier last season at 215, going 0-2.

"I just feel like everything's coming together at the right time," said King, whose team finished sixth (120) in the Watkins Memorial sectional behind champion Lancaster (220.5). "I feel pretty good that I'm doing my best right now. We're both pretty good and I know it would be close if we'd meet again."

Coffman junior Ryan Murdock (126, 38-1), a two-time state placer and one of three champions for the Shamrocks in the Central Crossing sectional, is looking for back-to-back district titles. He won a district title last year at 112 and went on to place fifth at state.

Coffman senior Joe Schulze (132, 34-7) earned a 9-7 overtime victory over Darby's Sean Black in a sectional final and senior Markell Wooden (152, 31-7) won all four of his sectional matches to reach district for the first time.

The sectional titles by Murdock, Schulze and Wooden helped Coffman win its first sectional championship since 2005. The Shamrocks scored 196.5 points to finish ahead of runner-up Upper Arlington (174.5).

Also qualifying for district for Coffman were seniors Tyler McCourt (160, 29-7), Chris Mullucey (120, 22-3), and Jake Cline (145, 29-8). Mullucey, a state qualifier last season, finished third at sectional despite competing with a 102-degree temperature, coach Bob Stoll said. McCourt and Cline finished second and third, respectively, at sectional.

The top four finishers in each weight class at sectional advanced to district.

"All 14 of our guys placed in the top six, so it was a great team effort," Stoll said. "You just try and get your best guys through and I think those who got through are all experienced guys for us. With the exception of Markell, all of them were district qualifiers last season."

Four of Jerome's six district qualifiers reached district last season, including Mowery, junior Bennett Comfort (126, 29-11) and seniors Jack Austin (145, 34-11) and Kyle Harness (160, 29-13). Comfort will face Murdock in his opening match at district.

Sophomores Andrew Pearson (138, 20-14) and Josh Transue (106, 25-11) also advanced for Jerome.

Austin, Harness, Pearson and Transue all placed third at sectional and Comfort finished fourth.

"We lost some close matches, but we battled back as a team," Jerome coach Adam Huddle said. "We had a tough semifinals round."

In addition to King, qualifying for district for Scioto were seniors Brandon Carbajal (160, 9-6), Brian Fox (170, 28-8), Dan Higuera (152, 21-13) and Ian Richeson (120, 20-11) and junior Yoshi Akutsu (heavyweight, 18-7).

Akutsu lost Pickerington North's Pat Elfein, an Ohio State football recruit, 9-1 in the final. Carbajal also placed second at sectional, while Fox placed third and Higuera and Richeson both finished fourth.

"Dan and Brandon surprised some people and Brian lost a match and came back and beat the No. 1 seed in the tournament, (Westerville Central's) Caleb Duffey, (with a technical fall) in the finals," Scioto coach Aaron McKenzie said.
