A celebration of the 2020 senior class was highlighted by Berea-Midpark Wrestling’s 48-24 conference victory over Midview. With the victory, the Titans finished the season 9-0 in the SWC and won the regular season title.
Three seniors took the mat for their final conference dual in front of the home crowd. Pino Dipierro, Jared Roden and Caden Wendling represented the 2020 Senior Class.
Berea-Midpark won nine of the 14 bouts, with several highlights throughout the evening, none more impressive than the one set by Dipierro.
With his first round pin of Midview’s Jameson Shenberger, the senior 120 pounder remained undefeated in Southwestern Conference duals for four consecutive years.
Of the nine victories, the Titans earned bonus points in five of them. Dipierro, Shane Heil, Dhillon Powell, Alex DiVincenzo, Jimmy Paletta and Roden all recorded pins on the night.
The Titans will host their third-annual Dual in the School on Thursday February 13th when Cuyahoga Heights travels to the Bob Purdy Gymnasium. Wrestling begins at 12:30 p.m.
