State Representative Bob Peterson (R-Sabina) today honored two local athletes during a session of the Ohio House of Representatives. Both individuals—Travis McIntosh and Riley Shaw—won championship titles this past March at the state tournament held at the Schottenstein Center in Columbus.

Upper weight Travis McIntosh became one of only two student-athletes in Miami Trace to win a state wrestling title when he won the 215-pound championship match. Riley Shaw, a junior at Washington Court House, made school history when he won the school’s first-ever state wrestling championship. He took home the Division II heavyweight title.

“I was honored and pleased to recognize two state champions from Fayette County. Our county has a great history of producing great wrestlers. Coach Reid and Coach Anders and all of Fayette County should certainly be proud of these young men’s achievements,” said Peterson. “Over the years, Riley and Travis have worked hard, improved their skills, and become state champions.”
