Perry has two new wrestling state champions. Juniors David Carr and Emil Soenhlen both captured state titles in Columbus during the OHSAA state wrestling tournament held March 9-11. The wrestling team captured 6th place overall with four individuals reaching the podium. Senior Joe Koontz placed 7th, Junior Zach Blackiston placed 8th, and our two state champions in Juniors David Carr and Emil Soenhlen provided all the scoring for the Panthers. Congratulations to the wrestling team on a fantastic season.
This Thursday (Dec. 1) evening our Perry football team is going back to Columbus to compete for a Division II State Championship. This exciting time presents some challenges as we look to accommodate the interest in supporting our young men, band, cheerleaders and the Perry community. With the game being held on a Thursday night there are additional logistics that make it difficult for everyone traveling. Insuring everyone’s safety as they head back and forth to Columbus is of the utmost importance. Ultimately, it was decided that Perry Local Schools will be having a 2 hour early release on Thursday, December 1st and Perry Local Schools will not be in session on Friday December 2nd. It is our hope this allows families to plan accordingly and assists in keeping everyone safe in their travels. Congratulations to all those associated with Perry football and to our community. Enjoy this moment again and let’s not take anything for granted. What an awesome reminder of the many great things happening in Perry Local Schools. Go Panthers!
