McLane Whips Visiting Dragons

The GM wrestlers took it to the visiting Warren Dragons on Tuesday evening, racking up 7 pins on the way to a 56-18 win. Tim Wheeling got the ball rolling with a fall over Michael Card in just over 3 minutes. Parker McDermott followed with a convincing 11-2 major decision over Garrett Smead. DJ Myers, Tyler Hendricks and Chris Laird posted back to back to back falls to run the score to 28-0 before Warren got on the board.

Jake Baker and Nick Soboleski both pinned their Warren foes to give the Lancers an insurmountable 40-6 lead. Joe Wheeling picked up a forfeit win in his first appearance of the year, Keller Watkins got the last fall of the night for McLane and Deane Twitchell posted an 11-1 major decision. The Lancers led 56-12 at that point. Warren picked up wins in the last two bouts, but it was too little too late.

Lancers Snag Athens Tournament Title

After finishing 6th three years ago and settling for runnerup honors two years in a row, the Lancers finally snagged their first Athens Tournament title on Saturday. The Lancers won the tournament in convincing fashion, outdistancing second place Saegertown by 48 1/2 points. What was most impressive about the win was the fact that the Lancers did it without Joe Wheeling. Joe is temporarily sidelined with an injury.

Leading the charge to the title were tournament champs, DJ Myers, Tim Wheeling and Deane Twitchell. Myers won 7 matches, 4 of them by fall. Wheeling went 6-0 with 3 pins and Twitchell posted a 5-0 record. Nabbing runnerup honors were freshman, Keller Watkins, Nate Ferrick and Parker McDermott. Ken Stoll and Tyler Hendricks took 3rd's. Freshman Nick Soboleski had a nice showing at the tournament, posting a 3-3 record with a pair of pins.

Deane Twitchell was named Wrestler of the Week for his awesome, 5 win, no losses performance in Athens. Twitchell went 1-6 at last year's tournament. Talk about turning it around. Congratulations Deane! Jake Baker won the Flukes Flooring, LLC Big Win of the Week award for Week #2. Jake came back from a 3 point deficit in the first OT ride out to win in ultimate tie breaker. DJ Myers won the (Times-News) Breakout Player of the Week Award for his outstanding performance at the Athens Tournament.
