Maconaquah wrestlers gear up for semistate

Maconaquah will be hoping one of its three wrestlers at the IHSAA New Haven Wrestling Semi-State can become the first state qualifier since 2013 as Blake Kinney, Aaron McKinley (Pictured) and Jared Blake all compete Saturday for a chance to reach the state finals.

It’s been almost seven years since Maconaquah’s Chase Williams represented the school on the mats at the 2013 IHSAA Wrestling State Finals, the longest drought for a state appearance among the three Miami County schools.

Three Braves will look to try and break that streak Saturday at the New Haven Wrestling Semi-State hosted at the Allen County War Memorial Coliseum.
