Sophomore Matt Lee and senior Todd Hastings were sent off in style Thursday by the Amherst Steele student body. They traveled to the Ohio High School Athletic Association state wrestling meet in Columbus, where Lee represented the Comets in the 285-pound weight class and Hastings took to the mats at 220 pounds. This was a second-year return to states for Hastings, who after college plans to play middle linebacker for the Baldwin Wallace University football team. The Steele band and flag corps rocked the high school lobby in a party for the departing athletes.
