Baker Wins Fred Bell Title
Wheeling and Bryant Place

Caleb Baker's ride home from Grove City had to be much more enjoyable than last year's. Baker went into last year's Fred Bell Tournament seeded second, but had to settle for 6th place due to an injury he suffered in the quarterfinal round. Not this year! Caleb chewed up four straight opponents on his way to the 285 title.

Baker had a couple of pins and a 2-1 win over Prep's Anthony Szymczak in the semis. But Caleb really shined in the finals when he beat 2009 NY state qualifier, Kacee Sauer of Holly, NY. Caleb completely dominated Sauer, who was named one of Wrestling USA Magazine's Best High School Underclassmen for 2009-2010.

Tim Wheeling, who was the lone McLane champion at Fred Bell last year, had to settle for 2nd place this time. Tim easily made the finals, disposing of four straight opponents, but couldn't get an offense going against Commodore Perry's state ranked, Nate Dias in the finals.

Travis Bryant finished 4th at Fred Bell last year. He duplicated that feat at this year's tournament, but in a slightly more dramatic fashion. Travis dropped a 4-3 decision to Prep's Logan Thompson in the preliminary round, but then bounced back with five consecutive wins. The last of those five wins was a 1-0 nail biter over Thompson. Bryant posted five falls, giving him 20 on the season and vaulting him into the GM record books for "Season Falls." Travis also became the first McLane wrestler to break the 30 win mark this season.

Dalton Lester and Tom Nuhfer came up one match short of placing at the tournament. Both wrestlers posted 3-2 records and were eliminated in the consolation quarterfinals.

GM Wrestlers Impressive In Win Over McDowell

To say that the Mclane wrestling team was impressive Wednesday night at McDowell would be an understatement. To a man, they fought like gladiators from the the opening whistle to the very end of every match. The result was a Region 4 upset over McDowell at their house.

Tom Nuhfer got the team off to a great start with a second period pin over Drew Cobert. Doug Myers followed with a hard fought, 5-3 win at 189 lbs. Travis Bryant got off to a slow start and trailed in his bout with Mike Weissinger, but the 215 pounder kept chipping and came out on top, 9-4. Caleb Baker followed at 285 lbs. with his 17th pin of the season over Tyler Covatto. That made the score, GM-18 McDowell-0.

The Trojans picked up a win by fall at 103 to make it 18-6. At 103 lbs., Tim Wheeling was in trouble late in his bout with Nick Gibson. He was trailing 1-0 in the 3rd period when Gibson was hit with a couple of penalty points. Tim scored a late takedown and hung on for a 6-3 win. At 119, Brandon Horn ground out a 6-4 decision over Devin Bogart, giving the Lancers a commanding 24-6 lead. But McDowell would start to close the gap after that.

Dylan Matz, Steve Spearman and Cody Nolan posted 3 consecutive wins for the Trojans, cutting the McLane lead to 24-20. DJ Myers and Zach Chivari lost during that McDowell run, but both wrestlers turned in valiant efforts. Chivari avoided being pinned by Spearman (ranked #1 in the state) a couple of times during their bout. That team point could have proven to be the difference in the outcome if things hadn't gone the Lancers way in the evening's final bout.

At 140 lbs., Zac Baumgartner once again showed why his photo is next to the word "heart" in the dictionary. Zac, who was wrestling with a sore shoulder, battled back from a couple of deficits to tie the match at the end of regulation. He gave up an escape in the first overtime session, but came back with a reversal before giving up another escape. He took the bottom position in the sudden victory period and secured a 10-8 win. That made it, 27-20, GM.

The Trojans pulled to within single point, 27-26 with a forfeit win at 145, but Tyler Hendricks and Dalton Lester weren't going to let it get any closer. Hendricks, who just returned to the lineup from an injury, pulled out a come-from-behind, 6-5 win over Jim Paulson at 152. That made the team score, 30-26 McLane.

Dalton Lester was locked in a scoreless battle with veteran, Ryan Kenski after one period when he chose bottom to start the second. Kenski put the boots in, but Dalton grabbed his head and pulled Kenski's shoulders flat to the mat. Final score, General McLane 36 McDowell 26.

The McLane wrestling team will be back in action this weekend at the Fred Bell Tournament in Grove City.

Lancer Wrestling Team Places 4th at Bison Duals

The GM wrestling team finished in 4th place with a 3-2 record this weekend at the Clearfield Bison Duals, despite having to forfeit 3 weight classes in two of their dual meets. Zac Baumgartner and Tyler Hendricks both suffered injuries during practice this week. Zac was able to wrestle in only two of the contests and Tyler was sidelined for the entire weekend.

The Lancers posted wins over Port Allegheny, Curwensville and Bradford, while suffering losses at the hands of unbeaten District 9 powerhouse, Clearfield and Greenville.

Tim Wheeling and D.J. Myers joined a group of five Lancer wrestlers who have posted 20 or more wins on the season. Dalton Lester currently leads the team with 25 wins.

Wheeling and Lester both posted perfect, 5-0 records at the Duals. Dalton had a very satisfying revenge win over Greenville's Tyler Lanfrieid. Landfreid had beaten him earlier in the month in the Tool City Tournament semifinals. Lester also handed Bradford's Jake McMurtie his first loss of the season.

Brandon Horn, Matt Campbell, Travis Bryant and Caleb Baker all had 4 wins against 1 loss. DJ Myers and Doug Myers both went 3-2. Baker's only loss was a 7-6 dandy to Greenville's Dillon Sarcinella (state ranked-13th AA). Matt Campbell has been a real asset to the team in a backup roll this season. Campbell was 4-1 at the Bison Duals and has been victorious in 14 of his 19 varsity matches.

Coach Cook was actually able to convince an official he missed a call this weekend. Christian Stone of Clearfield had applied an illegal scissors to Tim Wheeling's head just before going out of bounds. Coach Cook pointed it out to the official and Wheeling was awarded the point. It turned out to be a crucial point too...Tim clung to a precarious 1-0 lead until Stone was forced to attempt an unsuccessful desperation move with just 15 ticks left on the clock.

News and Notes: Congrats to Coach Cook for posting his 75th coaching win against Bradford. Only 3 McLane wrestling coaches have more wins than Coach Cook. They are: Coach Steve Samol (1965-75/100 Wins), Coach Tim Mulholland (1986-88 and 1994-2004/137 Wins) and Coach Gil Troutman (1979-86/80 Wins).

GM Wrestlers Go 6-1 at Corry Duals

The McLane wrestling team came close to going unbeaten at the Corry Duals, but as the saying goes, "close only counts in horseshoes." Only a 1 point deduction for unsportsmanlike conduct kept the Pride 'N Poise boys from winning all seven of their weekend matchups. What seemed like a very bad call to most of us in the stands turned out to be the Lancers undoing in the Corry match.

During the 189 lbs. bout, Doug Myers reversed Nash Walters straight to his back. The referee rightly stopped the match to avoid a potential injury to the Corry wrestler. What was inexplicable, was the fact that only 1 point was awarded to Myers instead of the 2 he should have revceived for an obvious reversal. Coach Cook simply asked the official about the call after being invited to the head table and was immediately hit with an unsportsmanlike conduct. It was one of the most bizzare calls this fan has ever witnessed.

Three McLane wrestlers had perfect weekends. Tim Wheeling (112), Zac Baumgartner (140) and Caleb Baker (285) all had 7-0 records. Also going unbeaten were: Nate Ferrick (1-0), Dalton Lester (6-0) and Matt Campbell (4-0). Of Wheeling's 7 wins, 5 came by way of fall. Caleb Baker and Zac Baumgartner had 4 pins apiece. One of Baker's big wins was a 17-1 technical fall over state ranked (19th AA), Patrick Malcomb of Southside Beaver.

Freshman, Parker McDermott made his varsity debut and picked up 3 wins and 2 stretch jobs. One of McDermott's wins was over last year's District 10 fourth placer, Alan Royek of Corry. Nate Ferrick and Bryan Campbell also picked up their first varsity wins.

Zack Chivari and D.J. Myers both posted 6-1 records. Tom Nuhfer went 4-1, Travis Bryant and Brandon Horn both won 5 and lost 2. Also posting winning records over the weekend were Kyle Kuntz (4-3), Parker McDermott (3-2) and Tyler Hendricks (4-3).

Dalton Lester, Travis Bryant and Caleb Baker all reached the 20 win plateau this past weekend. Baker's ran his record to 20 wins against 4 losses, Lester is 20-5 and Bryant is 20-6.

GM ran it's overall dual meet record to 7-2 / 6-2 in Region 4. The Lancers will be back in action this weekend at the Bison Duals in Clearfield.

Lancers Drop Dual at Prep, 42-25

Missing five starters, the McLane wrestling team dropped to 1-1 on the season with a loss to the Prep Ramblers on Wednesday evening at Cathedral Prep.

The Lancers started the match with a 9-0 lead when Travis Bryant and Caleb Baker both notched wins. After a loss at 103, Tim Wheeling scored a major decision over Adam Sallot to give GM a 13-6 lead, but that lead evaporated for good when the Lancers lost next three bouts, 2 of them by forfeit.

DJ Myers, Dalton Lester and Matt Campbell also picked up wins in the losing effort. Even though the Lancers came out on the short end of the score, DJ Myers and Travis Bryant showed their heart, determination and conditioning by winning their bouts in overtime.

The GM wrestlers will be back in action this weekend at the Corry Duals.

Wheeling, Baker Take Runnerup Honors at Tool City
Stockhausen, Lester and Bryant Nab Medals

Tim Wheeling and Caleb Baker fought their way into the grueling Tool City Tournament finals this weekend in Meadville. Unfortunately both wrestlers came up just a couple of points short of titles. The Lancers haven't crowned a Tool City champ since Hadley Harrison beat Aaon Nestor of Reynolds for the 140 lbs. crown and took home the AAA Outstanding Wrestler award in 2006.

Tim Wheeling (112) made his way to the finals by pinning North East's Justin Walker in the preliminary round, he posted a 17-6 major decision over Trenton Bowers of St. Marys in the quarters and then edged Clearfield's Christian Stone, 4-1 in the semis. Tim lost a hard fought, 3-1 decision to TJ Stanton (ranked 20th AAA) of DuBois in the finals.

Caleb Baker (285) had a pair of pins on Friday, the first over Jacob Seeley of Cochranton in the preliminaries and the second over Tyler Unger of Boling Springs. Baker followed up with a 3-1 win over Zach Seeley of Maplewood on Saturday morning. In the finals, Caleb dropped a 3-1 decision to Joe Chittester (ranked 2nd AA) of Ridgway.

Jay Stockhausen (145) took the hard road to the podium. Jay lost his opening round bout to Ridgway's Nate Dorish. But the scrappy 145 pounder bounced back with four straight wins, including a 5-2 win over Dorish in the consy semifinals. Stockhausen dropped a heart breaking, 4-1 decision to Geno Morelli of DuBois in double overtime in the consolation finals for a 4th place finish.

Dalton Lester (160) posted a 17-0 technical fall over Maplewood's Dakota Keeno in the prelims and won a 7-1 decision over Alex Svetz of North East in the quarters. Dalton lost to eventual runnerup, Tyler Landfried of Greenville in the semis, but bounced back with a big win over Casey Pace (ranked 17th AA) of Fort LeBoeuf in the consolation semifinals. In the consolation finals, Lester lost, 3-0 to Ridgway's Sam Skraba (ranked 19th AA).

Travis Bryant (215) won his opening round bout by fall over Dustin Sweet of North East. He lost to Corry's Nash Walters, 7-1 in the quarters, then posted two straight wins to make the medal rounds. Bryant dropped a 6-3 decison to Fort LeBoeuf's Brandon Bradney (ranked 13th AA) in the consolation semis. He finished the tournament with a 6th place medal after losing for the second time to Nash Walters, 6-4.

Brandon Horn (125) and Matt Campbell (171) also wrestled well this past weekend. Both wrestlers posted 2-2 records and came up just short of the medal rounds, losing in the consolation quarterfinals. Talented freshman, Tyler Hendricks saw his first action of the year after returning from an injury and posted a 1-2 record.

The Lancers finished in 8th place as a team, up a spot from last season.

Notes From Tool City: 285 pounder, Caleb Baker won the Tool City Tournament Fastest Pin Award. Baker pinned Jacob Seely of Cochranton in 23 seconds in the opening round. Congratulations!!!
