WADSWORTH — If Dylan Fishback finishes the next month like he has the past month, expect some big things in March.

On Saturday, Fishback (152 pounds) won his second tournament in as many weeks by adding a Grizzly Invitational Tournament title to his Top Gun crown.

“He’s got a saying, ‘Strong mind, strong body,’ ” Aurora coach Johnny Papesh said. “I think that fits him to a T. It’s just a mindset with him. ... Whatever it is, it just clicks with him. He stays strong.”

As a junior high state champion, Fishback hardly came into the high school season as an unknown, but he really started coming into his own at the Brecksville Holiday Tournament where he beat two-time Michigan state champion Austin Boone of Lowell, who was ranked eighth nationally at the time.

That match was a precursor to the title last week and he proved it wasn’t window dressing at the Grizzly Invitational where he beat two-time state placer and state runner-up Jeffrey Thomas of St. Paris Graham 3-2 in overtime.

“That win over Boone built up confidence in knowing that as a freshman in a senior weight class that I can wrestle with him,” Fishback said. “I feel like I’ve been in big matches before, so this was another match.”

The ride for Cuyahoga Valley Christian Academy’s Jordan Decatur (132) is nothing new, but the three-time national champion and two-time state champion planted a seed at the Grizzly when he beat Graham state runner-up Nick Moore 3-1.

The match could be a precursor to a state final between the two, so winning Round 1 was big for the Ohio State signee.

“It’s great for my confidence and great to see where I’m at with other competitors I’ll see at the state tournament,” Decatur said. “I think it’s good for him. He knows that I’m coming. I’m not stopping. I’m going for my third one, so my foot is going to be on the gas from now until March.

“Winning, first of all, is contagious. My CVCA guys see me winning and they love that. It puts a fire in them. It inspires my other teammates. Secondly, I’m trying to be an animal. I’m trying to be a beast and improve my game. The only way to do that is to build off your losses.”

Those words held true with tournament MVP Luke Baughman (138) of Wadsworth, who joined teammates Michael North (145) and Dom Loparo (170) with Grizzly Invitational titles.

A two-time state placer and returning state runner-up, Baughman had a rough couple of weeks with losses to two-time state placer Marco Regalbuto of Brecksville and state placer Mitch Collica of Nordonia.

At the Grizzly Invitational, Baughman beat Cadet All-American Jake Niffenegger of Cincinnati LaSalle in pool play before beating St. Vincent-St. Mary state qualifier Hunter Olson in the semifinals. In the finals, he knocked out Graham state runner-up Alek Martin 5-3.

“Yeah, those losses hurt my confidence a little bit, but I focused in,” Baughman said. “I had a good two weeks of practice and wrestled better today. I knew I had it in me. I just wasn’t wrestling my best.”

St. V-M’s Dierre Clayton (113) piggybacked his first-place finish at the Top Gun with a runner-up at the Grizzly, but this one may have been bigger considering he beat CVCA two-time state champion Jacob Decatur 5-2 in the semifinal.

It’s a matchup that will likely happen at district and then again at state.

“Everything is coming together well,” Clayton said. “I have a good drilling partner [in Kenneth Crosby]. He pushes me. If I’m down, he’ll pick me up and if he’s down, I’ll pick him up.

“That win got me mentally together. It gave me confidence in myself, so I could compete with somebody of that caliber. I know he competes hard. He’ll come back harder. I’ll have to train even harder to stay ahead.”
