Region wrestler of the year Joe
Wheeling, General McLane
at PIAA Championships
Wheeling made history this weekend in Hershey, PA. The
113 lbs. senior became General Mclane's first state finalist
since Bradd Weber did it in 1987. Joe opened the tournament
with a bang, winning by tech fall over #18 Derek Wilson of
Southwestern. In the quarterfinals Joe had his hands full
with North Allegheny's #5 Luke Landefeld. Landefeld took Wheeling
down to his back in the 1st period, scoring a quick 4 points.
In the 2nd period Joe rode Landefeld out and then chose the
bottom postion to start the 3rd. Landefeld threw in the boots,
but Joe was expecting it and came out the back door for a
2 point reversal. He added 2 more with a tilt to tie the score
at 4. The two went to overtime where Wheeling scored a takedown
to pull out an exciting 6-4 win.
the semifinals Joe drew #4 Derek Gulotta of Owen J. Roberts
and eked out a 1-0 decision. Joe scored an escape for the
only points in that match. In the finals, Wheeling lost to
Spencer Lee, a very gifted freshman with a 49-0 record and
ranked 1st in the country. All but 5 of Lee's matches this
year ended by fall or technical fall. Joe was one of those
5 exceptions, holding Lee to a win by major decision.
Laird was the victim of some plain old bad luck in Hershey.
Laird lost his first bout by a close, 5-3 margin to 4th ranked
Jovon Reyes of LE Dieruff. Chris took Reyes down to his back,
but time ran out before he could score the winning points.
He won his first match in the consolation rounds, a one sided
10-4 decision over Hempfield's #13 Tommy Bennett. That's when
the bad luck struck. Chris only needed one more win to medal,
but 195 lbs. NW Regional champ and #1 ranked, Tom Sleigh of
DuBois was upset in the quarterfinal round and dropped into
the consolation second round against Laird. Sleigh had beaten
Chris 15-0 in the NW Region finals a week earlier. Laird wrestled
a great match against Sleigh. He was aggressive and was in
deep on Sleigh's legs several times, but Sleigh kept working
the edge of the mat and managed to get out of bounds every
time. Sleigh pulled out a 5-0 win which ended the tournament
Twitchell, Ethan Laird and Ian Mallory went
0-2, but all three wrestled very well. Twitchell lost to #16
Mike Hartman of Spring Grove, 7-3 in the opening round and
then dropped a 10-3 decision to #5 Nathan Cheek of Wyoming
VW. Ethan suffered a preliminary round loss to #6 Austin Bell
of Belle Vernon and then dropped a close, 6-4 decision to
#15 Gregg Harvey of Boyertown. Ian Mallory lost 10-2 to #8
Hunter Hatlee of Wilson in the first round and then lost in
overtime to #17 Fred Mantsch of Hempfield in the consis. Mallory
got ahold of Mantsch's leg and nearly scored the winning takedown
in OT, but Mantsch scrambled and was able to come out on top.
Lancers cracked the top 25 in the team race for the first
time since 2004, finishing 24th out of 115 teams. GM also
finished higher in the team race than any other NW Region
from the PIAA Championships:
Wheeling wrapped up his high school wrestling career in
grand fashion. He broke a 27 year drought for GM wrestling
when he made the PIAA finals. Joe had some very tough competition
at the tournament but he was on a mission. Joe is a two time
regional champ and a three time state qualifier. He finished
his career with a 132-21 record. 11 of Joe's 21 losses came
during his freshman season when he weighed about 95 lbs. He
also set a GM freshman record for wins (35) that same year.
5 of Joe's 21 losses came at state tournaments.
Joe's record over the past two seasons was a stellar, 70 wins
against just 5 losses, with 3 of those losses coming in state
tournaments. Wheeling is also now the second winningest wrestler
in McLane history. He finished just 3 wins short of Hayden
Harrison's record of 135. Joe sat out several matches his
sophomore year with an injury or he most likely would have
broken the career wins record.
of Deane Twitchell's losses were to wrestlers who ended
up placing in the state tournament. Hartman took 7th and Cheek
8th. Deane concluded his wrestling career with 102 wins. After
a bit of a slow start this year Deane really ramped it up.
As the season went on he just seemed to get better with every
match and it all paid off at districts and regionals when
he won 145 lbs. titles. Deane also scored 22 major decisions
in his four years on the mat, second only to Branden Stearns
who had 24. I really enjoyed watching Deane win the 145 lbs.
weight class at regionals this year.
Laird had a great career as well. His 112 career wins
puts him in the top 12 the GM record books. He also broke
the career escapes record. Chris is a two time District 10
AAA champ, 2 time regional place winner and a two time state
qualifier. Unfortunately he ended up in a tough situation
when #1 Sleigh was upset in the quarterfinals and dropped
into the consis. I think Laird could have handled anyone else
in the consolation rounds. It was just the luck of the draw.
Both of Laird's losses were to state placers. Sleigh took
3rd and Reyes was 5th.
Mallory went 0-2, but nearly won his first consolation
round match. He came up just short, losing 3-1 in OT. The
good news is, Mallory is a junior. He'll be back to give it
another go next year. Ian also seemed to get better as the
season progressed. I hope he keeps working on that sweep single
leg takedown. I think it will take him a long way in that
upper weight class.
Laird had a fantastic freshman season. He was runnerup
to state place winner, Ehrin Lee at districts, placed 3rd
at regionals and became just the 4th McLane freshman to qualify
for a state tournament. His only loss at regionals was to
another state place winner, Chad Reese of Central Mountain.
Ethan looked very good at states. He was in both matches that
he lost and just missed advancing when he dropped a 6-4 decision
in the consis. There's no doubt in my mind that Ethan will
be on the podium at that tournament in the near future.
luck to this year's seniors. It's been fun watching you wrestle
for the past several years! Good luck to Joe Wheeling at WVU.

Lancers Win NW
being bridesmaids for most of the season, the McLane wrestlers
put it all together in Altoona this weekend and won the 2014
NW Regional AAA Tournament! It was just the second regional
team title in school histoy. The Lancers won their first crown
exactly 10 years ago in 2004 and just like a decade ago, very
few of the experts expected the Lancers to come out on top.
had finished 2nd to McDowell at the 2014 Team Duals and the
District 10 Tournament and most of the prognosticators predicted
the same result in Altoona. After all, McDowell had 12 regional
qualifiers to McLane's 10. And the Trojans led the Lancers
by 12 team points at the conclusion of Friday's wrestling,
so it looked like the experts might turn out to be right.
But the GM wrestlers came on strong Saturday and pulled off
their biggest upset of the season by running away with Regional
team title, finishing a whopping 23 1/2 points ahead of the
2nd place Trojans. Five Mclane wrestlers qualified for
next week's PIAA Campionships and 7 of 10 placed in the
Wheeling and Deane Twitchell both won titles in
their respective weight classes. Wheeling posted a
pair of pins and then beat 20th ranked Damian Huff of Holidaysburg,
5-3 in the finals to take the 113 lbs. crown. Huff went up
2-0 in that bout when he took Joe to his back for a two count
in the 2nd period, but Wheeling escaped and picked up a pair
of takedowns to seal the win. Twitchell got his 100th
career win in the quarterfinals, a 15-2 major decision over
Derek Horner of State College. He followed that up with a
3-1 decision over Jersey Shore's Hadyn Swortwood and then
pulled out a 3-1 win against 18th ranked Demetri Probst of
Central Mountain in the finals. Deane hit a slick duck under
and switched to a double to get the winning takedown in overtime.
Laird and Ian Mallory both made the finals but
lost their last bouts. Laird majored Nate Lose of Jersey
Shore in the preliminary round, then posted two decisions
to make the finals. Chris lost in the finals to Tom Sleigh
of DuBois. Sleigh showed why he is the top ranked 195 pounder
in the state by posting a 15-0 tech fall over Laird, who is
ranked 9th. Mallory won by fall in the quarterfinal
round and then won, 3-1 in overtime against Andrew Boob of
Selinsgrove. Ian lost, 9-4 in the finals to Dwayne Pepper
sensation, Ethan Laird took 3rd and also qualified
for the state tournament. Laird posted a 10-7 decision in
the opening round, but then lost, 9-2 to eventual runnerup,
5th ranked Chad Reese of Central Mountain. Ethan was nothing
short of amazing for the rest of the tournament, posting two
falls, a major decision and a lopsided 10-4 win in the consolation
finals over Jersey Shore's Seth Young.
Watkins and Mike Sutton were one win short of moving
on, taking 4th place medals. Watkins won by technical
fall in the first round and then won a wild one, 5-3 over
Shikellamy's 22nd ranked, Tristan Paul to make the semifinals.
Keller dropped a 9-3 decision to 5th ranked eventual champ,
Hayden Hidlay to drop into the consolations. Keller pounded
St. Marys' Kyle Pecht to make the consi finals, but then lost,
11-6 to 12th ranked Mike Kaufman of State College. Sutton
pinned Alex Feldbauer of St. Marys in the preliminary round,
but suffered a setback when he made a mistake and was pinned
by Cameron Jacobson of Alderdice. Mike wrestled back to the
consolation finals by posting a pin, a major and a solid 7-2
decision over McDowell's Ryan Dailey. Sutton lost the final
bout of his high school career, 1-0 when he failed to escape
in the 3rd period against 23rd ranked Cameron Jacobson in
a rematch of their quarterfinals bout.
2-2 in Altoona. He decisioned Noah Ulmer of Jersey Shore in
the first round and then lost to Warren's 11th ranked DJ Fehlman
in the quarterfinals. He pinned his next opponent but was
forced to injury default the next bout, ending his season.
Jacob Lenhart also contributed to the GM cause. Each
wrestler scored one win in the tournament before being eliminated.
Owen won by fall to pick up valuable bonus points for the
five state qualifiers will be back in action on Thursday in
Hershey, PA. vying for a spot on the podium.
From the 2014 NW Regional AAA Tournament:
Wheeling not only won his 2nd regional title (one of only
five GM wrestlers to do so), he also moved into 3rd place
on the career wins list with 129. He needs just one more win
to tie Hadley Harrison for 2nd place. Joe also became a 3
time state qualifier. He's one of only five Lancer wrestlers
to ever accomplish that feat. Phil Frndak, Bill Kirdahy, Hadley
Harrison and Tim Wheeling were the other four 3 time qualifiers.
After losing to top ranked Brendon Price of Canon-Mac by one
point in the first dual meet of the year, Joe has rattled
off 33 straight wins!
Twitchell looked very solid this weekend. He had a tough
match in the finals, but he looked like a well-oiled machine
and his wrestling was nearly flawless. That's what you want
going into the final weekend of the season. Besides winning
a regional crown Deane also racked up career wins 100, 101
Laird was very impressive at regionals. He scored a 12-4
major decision and only gave up 1 point in the next two bouts.
Unfortunately, he hit a major bump in the road, running into
top ranked Tom Sleigh in the finals. There was no shame in
the loss to Sleigh who seems to be wrestling at a whole other
level than the rest of the field. I still look for Chris to
do well at states. Laird also became a rare, two time state
qualifier and moved up to 12th place on the career wins list
Laird looked like anything but a freshman at regionals.
The 160 pounder shot, recovered, scrambled and kept his poise
for six straight matches. His only loss was to the very talented
senior, Chad Reese of Central Mountain. I'm very excited to
see what Ethan can accomplish over the next three seasons.
an up and down regular season, Ian Mallory seems to
be on a post season roll. The McLane junior won a district
title last week and followed it up by making the regional
finale. Keep it rolling Ian!
Watkins must be disappointed with his 4th place finish.
This is the 3rd year in a row the McLane junior has come one
win away from making it to states. But he wrestled very well
in what may have been the tournament's toughest weight class.
The 138 lbs. weight class sported no less than five state
ranked wrestlers. Keller beat one of them and both of his
losses were to wrestlers ranked in the top 12. Fortunately,
Keller will be back next year to take another shot at it.
Good luck Keller!
Hendricks battled injuries off and on all season and then
he tweaked his knee at regionals, ending his season. Let's
hope the talented sophomore can stay injury free for the rest
of his career.
Mike Sutton's high school wrestling career ended on
a sad note. The GM senior lost a 1-0 squeaker in the consolation
finals and failed to make a third straight appearance at the
PIAA tournament. In the two years Sutton wrestled at GM he
posted 59 wins with 30 pins, 2 major decisions and 5 technical
falls. It was great having Mike on the team. When he stepped
out on the mat we always felt like a win was inevitable. Even
though Mike finished 4th, the team title would not have been
possible without him. Good luck in all of your future endeavors
McLane wrestlers won the tournament in large part due
to the bonus points they racked up. The Lancers had
9 pins, 5 major decisions and 1 tech fall in the tournament.
Way to go!
