School Athletes of the Decade” for 1999-2009. Every Monday through

Today’s entry won a state record 171 straight wrestling matches…

15. Logan Stieber, Monroeville, Wrestling, 2006-2010: Stieber, an Ohio State recruit, won his state record 171st straight match with a pin of Miami East’s Zane Goldberg in the 125 final on Saturday. With the win Stieber finished his high school career with an overall record of 174-1. Stieber’s lone defeat is a 7-3 setback as a freshman in the finals of the 2006 Ironman to current Penn State freshman and four-time state champion David Taylor (Graham). Stieber, who has been ranked No. 1 in the country in his weight class for the last three years, has been especially dominant on the sport’s final weekend. In 16 state matches, Stieber won nine by pin and seven by tech fall.

“It’s a lot harder then people think. There’s a lot of stress,” Stieber said. “But I was relaxed this week and I felt good and I usually wrestle better when I’m like that. I was thinking about it in the tunnel, but freshman year I was all stone-faced and nervous before I came out and this year I was joking around with people and trying to relax.

“Ever since I was a little kid one of my main goals has been to win four state titles. No one likes to lose. It’s very easy to get motivated.”

Monroeville also won the Division III team title on Saturday. It is the school’s first.
