Jr High Wrestlers Notch First Win!

This year's Jr. High team looks like it will continue a winning tradition. The Jr. Lancers racked up an impessive 42-6 win against Fairview in their first match of the season.

The most exciting match of the evening was Kyle Goss's win over Lohrer. Goss had lost to Lohrer in two previous meetings, but was having none of it this time. Other than giving up an opening takedown, Kyle completely dominated his Fairview opponent on the way to an 8-4 decision.

Some of the other Jr. High winners were: Andrew Wilson, Don Osinski, Hadley Harrison, Brian Clark and Brandon Saraceno. The Jr. Wrestlers next test will be at Iroquois on Thursday, Dec. 13th.

Lancer Wrestlers Win 4th Straight Carr Tournament!

General McLane won the Tom Carr Tournament for the 4th straight year, thanks to gutsy performances by Pat Knaus and Wayne Gormont. Knaus took first in the tournament, winning a 2-2 OT rideout over Strong Vincent's Brian Bell in the finals at 171. Gormont was nearly pinned early in his finals match, then rallied back from a 5-0 deficit for a win by pin at 1:15.

Also winning titles for the Lancers were Hayden and Hudson Harrison. Freshman, John Heynoski did a great job, finishing second in the tournament. Freshman, Brandon Stearns also turned in a great performance, barely missing the finals with a 1 point loss in the semis. He finished third in the 160 lbs. class with a pin in his consolation match. Ryan Dunlap placed third in the 152 class with a hard fought 15-13 OT win against Dorion Biondo of Cambridge Springs.

Union City came in a close second in the team race. Warren was third. Cambridge Springs did surprisingly well in the tournament, considering the fact that their wrestling program was scrapped in the middle of the season last year. First year head coach, Larry Cornelius appears to be doing a great job putting the Blue Devil's team back together.

The Lancers had a total of 11 place winners. The four Champs were: Hayden Harrison, Hudson Harrison, Pat Knaus and Wayne Gormont. Second place: John Heynoski. Third place: Tim Shrout, Jake Keene, Luke Harrison, Ryan Dunlap and Brandon Stearns. Fourth Place: Nate Saraceno.
