COLUMBUS — It may have been his first match at a high school state wrestling tournament, but freshman Trevor Anderson commanded the mat like a veteran here Thursday on the biggest stage in Division III.

The West Liberty-Salem 126-pound rookie sensation dominated in his first-round match at the Jerome Schottenstein Center and moves into today’s championship quarterfinal round. One more win will move him to the semifinals and guarantee him a top six finish.
Anderson handled Austin Lang of Waterford in his first-round match and recorded a 13-6 decision. He now faces Zac Hupps of Galion (50-5) in the quarterfinals.
“I didn’t know what was going to happen,” said Anderson. “I just knew I wasn’t going to back down and let him come at me. If I was going to lose, I was going to lose aggressively. I just kept going after him.”
