records are falling this year with the help of some great wrestling
and an intensive schedule.
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).
Feikles scored his 92nd career win against Cumberland Valley
and could reach 100 with a solid post-season effort.
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.
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. Frank Myers' 27 pins in
a single season is the most ever by a McLane wrestler. Luke
has also moved into the 3rd position for most team points earned
in a season and taken over the number 3 spot with 54 career
