The Lion wrestlers defeated the Georgetown Eagles in their first dual meet by a score of 39-36. The Lions got the win after senior Dylan Watt pinned his opponent in the last few seconds to win his match.

“All I have to say that it was crazy,” senior Malcolm Wright-Harris said. “We were fighting all the way through until the end when Dylan Wyatt got the last second pin to win the match. Everyone fought hard and gave it all they had.”

Senior Isaiah Wood, Wright-Harris, Ricky Smith, sophomore Lance Reed and Watt all gained wins during the night to help push them to get the victory. This is the second meet in a row where the Lions have won first.

This team has the potential to be one of the best our school has ever had, however, we have a lot of work to do to get there.”

— Coach Mclain

“We are off to a good start,” head coach Adam Mclain said. “This team has the potential to be one of the best our school has ever had, however, we have a lot of work to do to get there.”

Up next the Lions will be wrestling at the Rough Rider Invitational at Roosevelt High School on December 17th starting at 8:30 a.m.
