AUBURN HILLS — Jared Roehl has ascended back to the top after dropping from the peak a year ago.

 

The Millington 215-pound senior won his second state championship in the Division 3 competition. He was state champ as a sophomore and second as a junior.

 

This season he ended his prep career by defeating Tyler Marino of Richmond in the title bout, 6-1, to claim glory.

 

The Central Michigan-bound Roehl lost in the 215 finals last season to Dundee’s Brandon Whitman, who dropped down to 189 this season.

 

“There was no way I was going to lose this time,” said Roehl. “If (Whitman) would have stayed up, it would have been a great match. He beat me by a point last year. But you can't control who your opponent is. I just went out there and wrestled my way and ended up beating him (Marino),” said Roehl. “It was my mission all season to win the state championship as a senior, regardless of who I faced (in the finals). It was my last match.

 

“I’m sad this is all coming to an end. I’m really happy it ended with a win,” added Roehl. “I am looking forward to the next chapter, wrestling in college.”
