COLUMBUS—State Senator Theresa Gavarone (R-Bowling Green) on Wednesday recognized Malakaii Pinkelton, a fifth grade student at Bataan Memorial Intermediate School in Port Clinton, for winning the Ohio Athletic Committee (OAC) Wrestling Meet in the 85-pound weight class.

"Malakaii is an outstanding young man, full of determination, and I am proud to recognize his accomplishments before my colleagues," said Gavarone. "I look forward to seeing what he achieves in the years to come."
