MEDINA — If what Luke Baughman did Friday at the Medina Invitational Tournament is any indication, the next four years are going to be fun for the 138-pound senior from Wadsworth.

The Indiana signee rolled through the first day of action with ease and then beat two future Ohio State wrestlers to win his second consecutive MIT title.

His semifinal came in dominant fashion when he pinned Lutheran West’s Parker Watson, who signed his letter of intent in November to wrestle for the Buckeyes.

The second win over a future Ohio State standout?

Well, that was a little bit bigger.

It came in dramatic fashion when the two-time state placer and three-time state qualifier faced Dylan D’Emilio of Genoa in the finals.

That would be three-time state champion D’Emilio, who is ranked third in the country by IntermatWrestle.com.

“The next four years are going to be so fun,” Baughman said. “I’m so excited for college wrestling. You wrestle the best guys in the country every day and keep getting better. I can’t wait to see what I can do.

“It feels awesome because Ohio State didn’t recruit me that hard. They did for a little bit, but it feels awesome to beat two huge recruits. I’m excited.”

The win over D’Emilio came in impressive fashion after each Big Ten pledge traded escapes in regulation and went the first full minute of overtime without anything happening.

In the 30-30s, Baughman, who was named MVP of the tournament, was able to keep D’Emilio down when he was on top, picking up a stall call just before the end.

When it was Baughman’s turn to escape, the champion did so with 0.4 left to end the match 2-1 and grab the biggest upset of the tournament.

“That was a huge win,” Wadsworth coach Clay Wenger said. “He believed it, though. That’s what’s special about Luke. He doesn’t look at the number next to the kid. He believes he can get it done. I had faith in him the whole time. I’m very proud.

Baughman’s win pushed his teammate Michael North (145) to a second consecutive MIT title as well.

With no break in between matches, North had two-time state qualifier and third-place finisher Dustin Morgillo of Genoa in his finals match.

After trading takedowns and escapes, North caught Morgillo in a scramble and put him on his back before pinning the senior with 10 seconds left in the second period.

“I was ecstatic,” North said. “I knew Luke was going to win, but with his win at the end, I was jumping around. I was ready to go for my match.”

Wadsworth added another champion in Dom Loparo (170) and won its third consecutive MIT and joined Brunswick’s Logan Heil (126) as another local winner.

St. Vincent-St. Mary’s Kenneth Crosby didn’t end his MIT with a win, but the 106-pound sophomore is certainly making up for lost time in Ohio after finishing fourth in the state tournament in Colorado last season.

Crosby gave returning state placer Zack Mattin of Delta all he could handle in a 3-0 championship final loss.

After missing the Ironman, Crosby has placed at the Beast of the East and MIT and shown he can wrestle with the big boys from the Buckeye state.

“I’m getting better as an athlete every day,” Crosby said. “I have a great staff behind me. We all know that I have a long way to go after a disappointing loss like that. Ohio is a lot deeper, a lot more solid. That mat game is a huge difference. They’re tougher riders and kids have more movement on bottom. They have deeper kids at every weight.”
