One of the best Division II wrestling teams in the area Lexington, is prepping for another run at an OCC championship and another top ten finish at state. Lexington wrestling coach Brent Rastetter (171-26) says his team this season will be very balanced with experienced juniors and seniors in the line up saying they have had a tremendous off season and he hopes it carries over to the regular season. Lexington is one of only two wrestling teams in Division II that have finished in the top ten in the state the past five seasons. The other is St.Paris Graham. The coach hopes this team can keep that streak alive. Lexington will be led by four seniors, Jonah Schropp 29-20, Gabe Benjamin 30-16, AJ Parr 15-9, Kendall Kuhn 19-6 and state qualifier, junior Bailey Faust 47-4. Overall, Lex returns 16 lettermen from a season ago. On the OCC, Rastetter says if the Minutemen are to win their seventh straight, the biggest challenge could come from Ashland and West Holmes, but the coach is quick to add that almost every team in the league has standout wrestlers. Of the 16 returning lettermen, five were OCC champions Brandon Leynaud, Bailey Faust, Drew Kasper, Jon Watkins and Xavier White. The 8th annual Lexington Wrestle Off will be Thursday, November 21st at 6pm at Lexington High School.
