FREDERICKTOWN — Cade Mickley sat on the bleachers in the Fredericktown High School gymnasium, dripping with sweat but wearing the biggest smile in the building.
Another goal achieved.
The Danville senior had just won the championship match in the 132-pound weight class at Saturday’s Mid-Buckeye Conference Championship Tournament.
After rolling through his three preliminary matches, Mickley defeated Northridge’s Shane Milligan in the first-place paring. Mickley took a lead with a near-fall and never looked back, fighting off every challenge Milligan posed.
“It’s awesome to go out of the MBC as a champion,” said Mickley. “It’s a very competitive league, and it really means something to get a championship out of it.”
It was one of Northridge’s few missteps on Saturday. The Vikings ran away in the points race early and claimed an MBC title — their final before jumping to the new Licking County League next year.
