If the McLane wrestlers proved one thing this weekend, it's that they are going to be a tournament team to contend with. GM put three wrestlers in the finals, two more in the consolations finals and snagged 3rd place at one of PA.'s toughest tournaments. This is the first time the Lancers have finished in the top three at King of the Mountain and they did it with just 11 wrestlers! It was an amazing accomplishment, especially considering the team's finishes over the last four years (23rd, 12th, 11th and 13th).

They even held a narrow first place lead going into the final round, but all five wrestlers lost their final bouts. GM's three finalists put out great efforts, losing to #1 seeds by the narrowest of margins. Ethan Laird (195), Owen Watkins (152) and Jacob Lenhardt (285) all wrestled their way into the finals. Andrew Brest (106) and Riley Vaughn (220) made it into the consolation finals.

Andrew Brest (106) went 4-2 and placed 4th! Brest racked up an 8-0 major decision in the preliminary round and then dropped a close, 7-4 decision. But he put together three straight wins, including a pin of #1 seed and 3rd ranked (AA), Kyle Anspach to make the consolation finals. Andrew lost a 5-2 decision in the consi finals to #6 seed and 9th ranked (AAA) Max Menendez of Council Rock South.

Owen Watkins (152) posted two falls and a technical fall over seeded opponents on his way to the finals. He dropped an 8-7 heart breaker in the finals against top seed, nationally ranked, Riley Palmer of Council Rock South. Watkins reversed Palmer twice during the match and came close to scoring back points as time expired.

Ethan Laird (195) scratched and clawed his way into the finals in a very tough weight class. Ethan knocked off the #6 and #2 seeds by close margins. In the semifinal round Laird pulled off a notable 3-1 win over AA state unnerup, Anthony Walters of Bishop McCort. He lost a 4-3 squeaker to #1 seed, Cole Nye of Bishop McDevitt, who's ranked first in the state (AA) at 195 lbs.

Riley Vaughn (220) went 4-2 and grabbed 4th place. All four of Riley's wins came by way of fall. Both of his losses came at the hands of #3 seed and AA state runnerup, Josiah Jones of Bishop McCort. Riley's four pins added some valuable bonus points to the team effort!

Jacob Lenhardt (285) also posted a slew of bonus points by pinning his way into the finals. He had three falls, two of them coming against the #6 and #2 seeds. He just barely missed a gold medal, losing 5-3 in overtime to Exeter's top seed, Oscar Daniels (ranked 8th AAA).

Brett Mallory went 2-2 and just missed making the podium. He pinned his first two opponents before losing, 6-4 in overtime to #2 seed, Carnell Andrews of Bishop McCort. He was eliminated in the consi quarterfinal round when he lost to Cole Meredith of Owen J Roberts.

Cayden Connolly (170) also went 2-2 with a fall and technical fall. Kyle Bloomquist (145) got his first win, a 7-2 decision in the first consolation round. Jack Kaulis (182) also scored one win, an 8-0 major decision in the first consi round.

The Lancers will be back in action Tuesday at home against Conneaut, OH.
