Yoder has a 24-4 record after posting a 5-2 decision over Zeke Torres of Central in the finale.
“The match turned on a fireman’s take down in the second period that put me in the lead,” Yoder said. “I use the fireman’s carry a lot. It’s easy to do and generally gets your opponent on his back.”
It’s Yoder’s first sectional title.
“It feels great, but it’s really hard to believe I’m the champion,” he said. “My goal was to get to the championship round.”
Baxter is a noteworthy 26-1 after a 12-2 major decision over freshman Garrett Griffen of NorthWood in the finale.
“We’ve wrestled two other times and the matches have been closer,” Baxter said. “My getting over the fear of being taken down and scored upon is why today’s match was different.”
This is Baxter’s first sectional title.
Fairfield had a pair of brothers win championships. Sophomore Blake Glogouski won at 106 and senior Forrest Glogouski at 120.
Blake Glogouski is a sparkling 34-2 after he pinned Katzer in 1:30 in the finale.
“I had not faced Katzer before,” Blake said. “It’s better to wrestle an opponent you are familiar with. Keys were pushing and going fast.”
Blake Glogouski is a two-time sectional champion. He notched the quickest pin (:14) in the second round.
Forrest Glogouski (34-1) is a four-time sectional champ after he recorded an 8-4 decision over Concord senior DeLawerence Gayfield (30-1) in the finale.
“The last time we wrestled was in the sectional last season,” Forrest said. “He has improved quite a bit and was unbeaten going into the championship.
“Winning today was great, but it’s not the ultimate goal. That is state. Today was just the first step.”
Jimtown senior Cameron Weiss (152) had the fastest fall in the opening round (:33).
