Northmor enters the match-up as the No.1 seed in the 18-B bracket and Pleasant as the No.3. The winner of that dual will meet up with the winner of the 18-A championship, either No.2 seed Genoa Area or No.1 seed and host of the championships, Oak Harbor. The team champion of Region 18 will then head to Ohio State’s St.John Arena on Sunday Feb. 12 to compete in the State Wrestling Dual Team Tournament.
