Three members of the state champion Southern High School wrestling team competed in the National High School Coaches Association Junior National Championships at Virginia Beach, Va., this past weekend, and one of those Rams, Jakob “Bubba” Scheffel, returned home with the national title in the 160-pound division. He is pictured above right with teammate Lex Ozias, who finished third in the 140-pound division. Both are juniors at Southern, and both are current Maryland state champions.
Bubba cruised through his bracket of 48 of the nation’s top 160-pounders, pinning four opponents and recording a 12-1 major decision over the fifth one. Ozias won four straight matches, was edged by a single point in his fifth match, and won his sixth to take third place among 57 wrestlers in his bracket. Bubba’s brother, senior George “Brutus” Scheffel, finished the senior division tournament with five wins and two narrow defeats. His division included nearly 80 wrestlers, and he was one of four 4-time state champions in the 145-pound bracket. Northern High School’s Adam Moranduzzo also competed in the senior tourney and won two of three matches in the 152-pound division.
