Fred Bell Tournament Title
you're on a roll, you're on a roll. The McLane wrestlers,
in addition to having a spotless dual meet record, won
their second team tournament title of the season on Saturday
in Grove City. The Lancers even made it look easy. Exactly
half of the team made the finals and 10 wrestlers placed in
the top four! By the end of the day Friday it was evident
that the McLane wrestling team was on a serious mission. The
Lancers ended the first day of action with 21 wins, 4 losses,
15 pins, 2 tech falls, 3 majors and a decision.
Wheeling made the Fred Bell finals for the third straight
year and won his 2nd title at 106 lbs. Wheeling was never
seriously challenged. He started the tournament with 3 pins
in a row and followed with a 6-0 white washing of 21st ranked,
Jake Jones of Stroudsburg in the semis. In the finals, Joe
took Lakeview's Evan Clayton down almost immediately and cruised
to a 14-2 major decision.
Bowers grabbed the crown at 160 lbs. Bowers pinned his
opponent in the pigtail round, posted a major decision in
the preliminaries and then secured a 6-2 decision over Cochranton's
Ryan Northcott in the quarters. Ossie eked past Titusville's
16th ranked, Ehrin Lee, 5-3 in the semis. He won the title
when he rallied from a 4-1 deficit to win a 6-5 decision over
South Side's Connor Payne.
Laird was McLane's third champion, winning the 182 lbs.
title in convincing fashion. Laird posted a trio of pins in
the opening rounds and then beat Stroudsburg's Joe Palmisano,
9-6 in the semis. In the finals, Chris came storming back
from a 3-2 defict and posted a 10-5 decision over Joe Hines
Watkins took runnerup honors at 126. Watkins scored an
astounding 50 points in his first three bouts, all wins by
technical fall. He pulled out a 4-2 overtime win over Conneaut's
11th ranked, Kyle Luckowich in the semifinal round before
falling in the finals to Warren's DJ Fehlman. Watkins won
the first meeting between the two several days ago in Warren,
by a score of 7-2.
Stoll also placed 2nd when he forfeited in the finals
due to a sore shoulder. Stoll won by fall in the preliminary
round, posted a 6-1 decision over Titusville's Easton Hogue
in the quarterfinals and then shut out Stroudsburg's Brian
Morales, 5-0 to make the finals.
Hendricks came up just one heart breaking point short
of winning the 170 lbs. crown when he lost, 6-5 to Cochranton's
14th ranked, Austin Andrews in the finals. Hendricks wrestled
a great tournament, posting two pins and two lopsided decisions
before losing his last bout. Tyler was trailing Andrews, 4-1
early in the second period and came back to tie the score
at 4 in the third. He gave up a late takedown, but managed
to escape to pull within a point. Unfortunately he ran out
of time before he could score a go ahead takedown.
Baker also just missed winning a title at 195 lbs. After
putting together four straight wins, including three pins,
Baker fell in the finals to Franklin's Dan Geer by a score
of 4-2 in overtime.
Twitchell took 3rd place at 132 lbs., losing just once
to the tournament's outstanding wrestler, 6th ranked, Shane
Gentry of South Side in the quarterfinal round. Twitchell
actually had more wins in the tournament than any other McLane
wrestler. He won 6 bouts, including a pair of pins and a pair
of major decisions.
Mallory also took 3rd place at 220 lbs. Mallory wrestled
very well and lost just once, in the semifinals to 4th ranked
tournament champ, Cam Cyphert of Cochranton. Ian racked up
4 wins, including a pin and a shutout.
Sutton placed 4th. Mike won his first two matches by fall
before losing in the semifinal round to Franklin's very talented
freshman, Dakota Geer, 2-1. Mike bounced back with a pin in
the consi semis before losing another heart breaker, 1-0 to
Jakobson of Stroudsburg in the consolation finals.
Sult didn't place but went 3-2 and added some valuable
team points. Two of his three wins were pins and the other
was a major decision. Dylan Myers and Brandon Koehler
also added a win by fall each to the team effort.
team will be back in action on Thursday in the District
10 AAA Teams Duals at Central Tech. The Lancers
will try to win their first District 10 Team Duals title since
From Fred Bell:
Watkins has done something amazing. He scored three technical
falls in a row at Fred Bell which gives him 15 for his career.
The old record was 12 which was set by Mike Caro from 1982-1986.
Keller's varsity wrestling career is less than two years old
and he's already shattered Caro's record.
entire team wrestled very well this weekend, but I want to
say congratulations especially to Chris Laird who finished
6th last year and then won the tournament this year. That's
quite a leap from 6th place to 1st place. Great job!
Baker leads the team in wins with 25. Joe Wheeling
leads the team with 15 pins. Keller Watkins is the
tech fall king with 7.

team just seems to get better every week and the win in the
finals against West Branch was an example of how the wrestlers
seem to do whatever it takes to win. Case in point, Deane
Twitchell and Ken Stoll both upset state ranked
opponents at 132 and 138 pounds where West Branch was counting
on picking up some bonus points. Freshman, Dylan Myers,
Mike Sutton and Jake Baker all won close decisions
in that match. The Lancers also beat another state ranked
team, Port Allegany (ranked 24th in AA by Off The Mat).

on Wednesday evening with a lopsided, 54-12 win over the visiting

contest, 5-2. But the highlight of the evening came in the
final bout when Kendrick Storm-Bailey, wrestling his
first varsity match pinned Prep's 285 pounder. Kendrick was
trailing 2-0 and fighting off a wicked half nelson when he
stepped over Nate Carlin and stuck him at the 3:06 mark.

noon on the mats at General Mclane.

Their First Ever Tool City Championship
General McLane wrestling team continued their winning ways
this weekend in Meadville. The Lancers turned in an unbelievable
team effort and ran away from the rest of the field to clinch
their first ever Tool City Tournament Crown. 11 of 14 McLane
wrestlers placed in the top 6, as the team amassed 203 points,
32 1/2 points ahead of a distant 2nd place DuBois.
Sutton was the lone GM individual champion. Sutton worked
his way through a very tough 152 lbs. weight class and then
claimed the title with a solid, 5-2 win over Cathedral Prep's
Dan Krysiak. Mike opened the tourney with a fall over Zane
Drum of DuBois in the preliminary round. He had his biggest
test of the tournament against 2nd seeded John Vaughn of Boiling
Springs when he pulled out a hair raising 3-2 decision. In
the semifinals Sutton pinned Greenville's Blake Horne to advance
to the championship round.
Wheeling also made the finals, but had to settle for runnerup
for the second year in a row. Joe started the tournament with
a couple of pins and then eked out a 3-2 decision over McDowell's
Charlie Lennox in their second meeting of the year in the
semis. Wheeling lost by fall in the finals to Saegertown's
sophomore sensation, Devin Brown. Brown a Steubenville, OH.
transfer was a 3rd placer at the Ohio State Championships
as a freshman and runnerup at this year's Powerade Tournament.
really clinched the tournament win for the Lancers however,
was a solid performance from top to bottom, especially from
160-220 lbs. Ossie Bowers (160), Tyler Hendricks
(171), Chris Laird (182), Alex Thayer (195)
and Jake Baker (220) all took 3rd place medals, one
win right after the other. Those five wrestlers each suffered
just a single loss and combined for a 20-5 record with 9 of
those wins adding team bonus points. They also won the close
Watkins and Ken Stoll both took 4th place. Keller's
2 losses were both to the same wrestler, Clearfield's Dylan
Graham. Ditto for Ken Stoll who lost twice to Saegertown's
Matt Humes. Rounding
out GM's placewinners were Hunter Hendricks (5th) and
Ian Mallory (6th).
From Tool City:
Sutton became General McLane's first Tool City champion
since Hadley Harrison won the 140 lbs. title (and the
AAA Outstanding Wrestler award) in 2006. Mike is now 7-0 and
is GM's lone unbeaten wrestler. Nice job Mike!
Thayer won the Fastest Pin award for his 12 second
fall over Warren's Dan Henry in the quaterfinals. Alex also
just missed making the Tool City finals when he came from
way behind to nearly upset LeBoeuf's Garrett Reinwald (he
ended up on the short end of an 8-7 decision). It was a great
tournament for Alex!!!
Mclane wrestlers brought home medals! That is the most
medalists the Lancers have ever had at the Tool City Tournament,
by far. The team really shined in the consolation semifinals
and the consolation finals between 160-220 lbs. Five wrestlers
combined to win ten straight matches and take broze medals!
Congrats to Ossie Bowers, Tyler Hendricks, Alex
Thayer, Chris Laird and Jake Baker for winning
back to back to back to back to back matches not once, but
twice. What an accomplishment!!!
Cook has been at the helm for two of Mclane's top finishes
at Tool City. This year's 1st place finish and a 2nd place
finish in 2005, his first year as head coach! Congratulations!
other thing that needs to be mentioned. This may be one
of the most well balanced teams to have ever graced the mats
at GM. But as good as the team is, it may have been even
better if Parker McDermott hadn't sufferred a career ended
injury earlier in the year. Parker is a senior. He won
55 matches and racked up 29 pins in his 3 years as a varsity
wrestler. He was a 4th place finisher at last year's District
10 tournament and may very well have advanced deep into the
post season this year. I know Parker would like to be out
there on the mats helping his team this year. We all miss
watching you compete Parker.
