SHARON â€” Brookville senior Logan Stout has had one thing on his mind since the first day he stepped onto the mat this season â€” a regional championship.
Stout achieved that goal Saturday at the Northwest Regional Class AA Championships in Sharon by earning the 195-pound title over Alex Svetz, of North East, in a narrow 4-3 decision.
