Eagle freshman Ronnie Garbinsky (37-3) edged Northeast Regional third placer Coltin Fought (38-6), a freshman from Benton High School by a 2-0 decision. Garbinsky will wrestle Jefferson-Morgan senior Brian Scritchfield (32-10), a fifth place finisher at the Southwest Regional, who defeated Jamie Welsh 5-4 in overtime. Garbinsky finished second at the Southwest Tournament, but did not wrestle Scritchfield.
Tyrone sophomore A. J. Schopp (37-4), a returning state runner-up, who was second last weekend at the Southwest Regional, shut out freshman Shane Rankin (36-4), a third place Northwest Regional finisher from Union City, 7-0. Schopp will face Northeast Regional champ Josh Malick (37-2), a senior from Mount Carmel, who knocked off Nick Blasone (37-12) a Southeast Regional fifth place medalist, from Bermudian Springs, 8-6.
