  • Glad to see Nordonia wrestling is back. I went to high school in the late '70's and in case your readers have forgotten or are too young: from 1977-1981, Nordonia finished 1st, 2nd, 2nd, 9th and 11th in the state. In 1979, Nordonia and Stow finished 1 & 2 in the sectional and district tournaments and 2 & 3 in the state. Kent Roosevelt finished 19th. Stow finished 3rd, again, 1 point behind Brunswick in 1980. Tallmadge finished 14th. Nordonia tied Tallmadge for 11th in 1981. There was no better wrestling in the state than the old Metro League!
