Two brothers on the Dublin Jerome High School wrestling team continue to pile up victories.
Josh Transue improved to 35-5 on the season by winning the championship at 113 pounds in the Celtics' All-North Tournament on Feb. 1, and Seth Transue placed fourth at 106 and improved to 35-9.
Jerome scored 136.5 points in the 16-team event to finish fourth behind Amanda-Clearcreek (191), Gahanna (147.5) and Mount Vernon (137). Olentangy Orange (134.5) and Shadyside (131) rounded out the top six.
"I think we were a half-point out of third place and we had some guys out," coach Adam Huddle said. "We even had kids who weren't scoring points for us wrestling pretty well, so I'm pretty pleased with how we performed."
Also in the All-North Tournament, Liam Dunlea (23-8 record) placed second at 120 and Alex Jacobs (24-9) finished third at 138. Placing fourth were Emilio Paesano (17-13) at heavyweight, Carter McLoughlin (24-18) at 126 and Justin Chon (10-8) at 145.
Jerome will play host to Canal Winchester in its final OCC-Cardinal Division dual Thursday, Feb. 6. The Celtics improved to 3-3 in the league with a 36-31 win over Westerville South on Jan. 30.
