KETTERING — The Butler Aviators dominated the Greater Western Ohio Conference tournament last weekend by scoring a whopping 276.5 points. That record total was more than 100 points higher than second place Springboro (176). Beavercreek was third with 167.5 points.

It was the second straight year the Aviators won the tournament.

“When you win this tournament it means something,” said Butler head coach Mark Peck. “These kids have worked hard, their parents have worked hard, the stat girls have worked hard, the JV kids have worked hard to push these guys. There’s a lot that has to align just right to win this. Hopefully we aren’t done.”

Winning weight classes for the Aviators were Matt Motter (106 pounds), Josh Suddeth (113), Bailey Suddeth (126), Ronnie Pietro (132), Ethan Cyrette (170), and Jansen Love (182).

“I knew after the seed meeting we were set up to do pretty well,” said Peck. “This team scores a lot of bonus points and after the first night we were up by almost 40 points which is a lot.”

The Aviators have two weeks to recuperate and get ready for the Centerville Sectional Tournament to be held on Feb. 23-24 at Centerville High School.
