  Senior Radical Rothermel has reached his 100th win on the wrestling mats. Radical who is a four sport athlete achieved this at the “Hammer & Anvil” tournament on January 15, 2022. 


      This huge win for Radical came about after defeating senior Corey Henson from West Clermont. Minutes later Rad also set Edgewood’s fastest pin record against sophomore Bo Wolford, from Licking Valley. Radical Owen Adam Rothermel (R.O.A.R) placed 2nd at the Hammer & Anvil tournament. 


      Radical had this to say about his accomplishment, “I genuinely was just excited about it, I’m the first heavyweight to have hit 100 wins at Edgewood. If the win wasn’t good enough being the only one in the heavyweight category sure made it better!”. Not only is Radical a gifted athlete, he’s an ever better teammate and person.   Xander Began, a longtime friend of Rad said “He’s one of the most accountable guys, he hasn’t missed a practice since freshman year. His dedication to himself and our team shows what kind of person he is.”.
