Mulholland Named D-10 Coach of the Year.

The Lancer wrestlers won the 2002-03 District 10 Tournament Saturday in Meadville by outdistancing second place, Erie Prep by 22 1/2 points. GM had three champs, three second place finishers and four 3rd placers. A total of ten wrestlers will make the trip to Altoona to compete in the Regional tournament.

Hayden Harrison won his second consecutive D-10 title, by pinning Warren's Jamie Shearer in the semis and then pulling out a spine tingling 9-8 decision over Corey Murphy (Corry) in the finals. Hudson Harrison won the 152 lbs. weight class by posting a 13-1 major decision over Dan Sullivan in the semi-finals and then beating a tough Matt Horne (Conneaut Lake) 13-8, in the finals.

Kyle Feikles was the other Lancer to win a crown. Feikles soundly beat McDowell's top-ranked (D-10) Chad George by a 12-3 score, in the semis. In the finals, he whipped a stubborn Matt Baker, 10-6.

Also making the finals, but losing their final bouts were: Jake Keene, Ryan Dunlap and Branden Stearns. Keene scored his second fall of the tourney when he pinned Warren's Alex Lauffenburger in the semi-finals. He then dropped a 12-3 major decision to Tyler Harrison of Titusville in the finals.

Ryan Dunlap pinned Franklin's Matt Jackson in the semi-finals. In the finals, he met Corry's Nick Wood, last year's District champ at 160 lbs. The two were in a real battle when Dunlap pancaked Wood and nearly pinned him. But Wood rolled through, putting Dunlap on his back and winning by fall at the 3:20 mark. Branden Stearns made the finals by whipping Franklin's Mike Murkins, 4-0. He dropped a heart breaking 4-3 decision to Prep's Sean Connole. This is the second year Stearns has been District 10 runner-up.

Placing 3rd for McLane were: Hadley Harrison, Tim Shrout, Luke Harrison and Wayne Gormont. Hadley Harrison lost to Prep's John Heynoski in the semi-final round, 10-2. He fought his way back to the consolation finals and scored a 9-0 major decision over Conneaut Lake's Adam Green.

Tim Shrout lost his semi-finals bout, 10-8 to McDowell's Ryan Smith on a controversial call at the buzzer. Shrout made the consy finals and scored an 8-0 major decision over Warren's Brian Pascuzzi. Luke Harrison gained some measure of revenge over Warren's Scott Goodwill. Goodwill knocked Harrison into the consolation bracket Friday with a 5-4 upset. But Luke pinned the Dragon wrestler in the consolation finals.

Wayne Gormont had a great tournament. His only loss was to state place winner, Ryan Marovich in the semis. Wayne had three wins, including a big one over Corry's Bill Chase, by a 9-1 score. Gormont pinned Conneaut Lake's Justin Vasquez in the consy finals.

Brandon Saraceno, Paul Hayes, Josh Grabski and Travis Goss failed to place, but all four won matches and contributed to the team point total. Saraceno went 2-2, posting two falls, before bowing out in the consy quarter-final round to Titusville's Joe Snyder. Paul Hayes went 2-2, but pinned 2 opponents for some important bonus points. Hayes just missed the medal rounds when he lost to Warren's Alex Lauffenburger in the consy semis.

Josh Grabski had a big win in the quarter-finals, reversing an earlier loss to Franklin's Bill Hasson. Grabski just missed medaling when he lost a tight 6-5 decision to Oil City's Matt Dempsey in the consy semis. Travis Goss reversed an earlier loss to Franklin's Jeremy Hoover, by posting an 8-0 major decision in the consy quarter-finals and just missed placing when he dropped a heart breaking 3-2 double overtime decision to Titusville's Mike Sullivan.

The match started at 171 lbs. where Branden Stearns posted a solid 7-3 decision over Cory Hubbard. Josh Grabski received a forfiet at 189 to make the score 9-0.

At 140 lbs there was a double forfiet. Hayden Harrison elected to put his unbeaten record on the line against CL's Chad Sutliff, by bumping up to 145 lbs. It turned out to be one of the best match ups of the season. Hayden took an early 2-0 lead, then let Sutliff up so he could score a second takedown. But, Sutliff countered Harrison's single leg attempt and got the takedown himself to make it 3-2. Hayden tied the score at 3-3, but Sutliff went out in front, 4-3 and Harrison never got the lead back.

Hudson also had a tough customer in Matt Horne. Hudson pulled out a wild 10-7 decison to post his 31st win. Ryan Dunlap finished with a pin at 160. He hit a nice hip toss 44 seconds into the second period and got the fall. McLane-41 Conneaut Lake-19.

The victory wraps up one of the best seasons in McLane wrestling history. Coach Mulholland, Ryan Cook, Dan Harrison and Kevin O'Meara deserve a lot of credit for their great coaching this year. Congrats to the coaches and wrestlers on an unforgettable regular season. Now...on to the post-season!!!

News and Notes:

Lancer records are falling this year with the help of some great wrestling and an intensive schedule.

Hudson Harrison now has 99 career wins and should join the 100 club before the end of the regular season. Hudson has also tied Matt Caro and Jason Hiltabidel for most technical falls in a career and has moved into the second position for most team points earned in a season. He also has taken over the 5th position for most career pins (47).

Kyle Feikles scored his 92nd career win against Cumberland Valley and could reach 100 with a solid post-season effort.

Hayden Harrison got his 20th fall of the season against Eric Goodling of Cumberland Valley. That ties him with Jamie Keeney (1995-96) for 4th place for most fall in a season. Hayden could also shatter Tom Kirdahy's career takedown record before the end of the season, and he's only a junior.

Luke Harrison scored his 19th fall at the PIAA Team Duals. That pin moves him into 6th place in the record books for most falls in one season.
