Double-R senior doubles up on wins in solid district performance

Aidan Konet

GARFIELD HEIGHTS, Ohio (March 4, 2023) -- Rocky River Wrestling closed out its 2022-23 season Saturday, with 215-pounder Aidan Konet competing in the DII Garfield Heights District Tournament.

River's last stand was an impressive one: the squad's lone district qualifier, Aidan Konet won two bouts and advanced to within an eyelash of a top-6 placement in the full-field event featuring athletes from 44 programs.

Konet opened with a big victory -- a pin in 3:48 -- over highly-regarded Canfield senior Jimmy Scharrer. After a loss by fall in his second bout, the senior earned a hard-fought decision in a 3-2 grinder against Canton South's DeAngelo Spear, who went into the match with a 22-12 record. The victory would be the last in Konet's fine high school career. He was defeated 6-2 by eventual placer Isaac Griffith (Girard) in his next bout.

Konet led all River wrestlers with a 22-6 mark this season.

The 2023 OHSAA Wrestling Tournament will be held March 10-12 at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus.
