Addison Rudolph returned to OHSAA Wrestling State Tournament, held March 8-10 at the Schottenstein Center. It was her fourth year to qualify for the season finale that features the states’ 16 best in 14 weight classes. This year, the Central Crossing senior moved up a weight class and took the number one spot at the Division I District Tournament at 120# pounds. Rudolph started off the tournament with two wins before falling to eventual champ, Kayla Moroschan by a score of 3-0 in her third match. She came up on the short end of another close match in the semi-final before bouncing back into the win column, and taking a 5-2 win over senior Josie Nickoloff of Olentangy Orange (shown here). The final win would place Rudolph on the podium in fifth place, making her a four-time state placer. She finished the season with a record of 43-13. During her career, she captured over 120 wins, as well as earning Academic All Ohio honors. Rudolph recently accepted a scholarship to wrestle at Cambellsville University in Kentucky.
It was the first trip for Central Crossing sophomore Jacob Ramirez to the OHSAA State Wrestling Tournament, held March 8-10 at the Schott. Ramirez qualified for the states’ biggest wrestling stage by finishing in the top four at the district tournament in the Division I, 150-pound class. He was unable to capture a win at the tourney, bringing his season record to 36-16.
