Van Buren's Chance Sonnenberg, a state placer at the OHSAA State Wrestling Tournament last year, will have another shot to  reach the podium this year after finishing in third place in the District Wrestling Tournament on Saturday. Isaac Sexton was Van Buren's other place winner, where he finished in sixth place in the 285 pound weight class. Van Buren took six wrestlers to the tournament, and came away with a 15th place finish in a 50 team field. Congratulations to all of our wrestlers!

In world news, Ukraine's former Prime Minister and opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko was released from prison today as Ukraine's Parliment has forced their current President out of office after weeks of protests. Tymoshenko, who spent nearly 30 months in prison, is largely supported by Ukraine's population. While turmoil has not yet ended in Ukraine, major progress has been made by protesters after weeks of violence across the country.
