GM Drops A
Close One To Bulldogs
starting the season with four straight easy wins, the GM
wrestling team was shocked by the Bulldogs who pulled off
an upset Wednesday evening in Meadville. The match went
McLane's way at the beginning. They took a 15-6 lead thanks
to forfeits to Ethan Laird, Andrew Brest and
a 3-0 decision by Jacob Lenhardt over Nick Morelli.
But Meadville rattled off six straight wins, including an
unexpected one point loss loss by Brett Mallory at 138 lbs.
At that point the Bulldogs had a commanding, 36-15 lead.
The Lancers didn't roll over though. Owen Watkins,
Jon Carrier and Cayden Connolly pinned their
opponents in succession to bring the team to within striking
distance at 33-36. All they needed was a win of some kind
at 182 lbs. Unfortanely it didn't happen. Jack Kaulis fell
behind 3-1 early in his bout and even though he pressed
the action he just wasn't able to score again against a
very defensive opponent. In the end the Bulldogs walked
away with a 39-33 victory.
McLane wrestlers will be back in action next Wednesday at
Cathedral Prep, against a very tough Rambler squad.

3 Champs But Fail To
Three-Peat As Tool City Team Champs
McLane wrestling team headed to Meadville last Friday
hoping to Three-Peat as champions at the Tool City Tournament.
The Lancers wrestled well and even won 4 of 5 in the medal
rounds. But a couple of one point losses just before the
medal rounds and no entries in the 120 and 126 lbs. weight
classes proved to be too much to overcome. In the end they
would settle for fifth place, just one point behind Seneca
Valley and 32 points behind tournament champs, Saegertown.
GM wrestlers made the finals and three of them claimed titles.
Owen Watkins, Ethan Laird and Jacob Lenhardt
went unbeaten. Andrew Brest also made the finals
but lost his last match to upstart Trent Donahue of DuBois.
Brett Mallory nabbed 3rd place, losing just once
and then avenging that loss in the consolation finals.
Watkins (152) opened the tournament with a pair of falls.
He followed with an 8-0 major decision over Zack Posego
of Saegertown to make the finals. Watkins became a 2 time
Tool City champ when he pounded Harborcreek's TJ Bratt,
11-3 in the finals. Owen's brother, Keller also claimed
two Tool City titles (2014 and 2015).
Laird (195) rolled to a gold medal with five lopsided
wins. He pinned his first two opponents and then scored
three straight major decisions against state ranked opponents.
He easily beat 7th ranked (AAA) Zach Carcy of Fox Chapel,
15-4, 13th ranked (AA) Lane Reinwald of Fort LeBoeuf, 18-5
and bested 23rd ranked (AAA) Jeff Craig of Meadville in
the finals, 16-4. Laird was named the tournament's outstanding
AAA wrestler for his efforts! He also won an award for
most takedowns in the tournament (28). Ethan became a 4
time Tool City place winner this weekend. He placed 6th
in 2014, 3rd in 2015, 2nd in 2015 and 1st this year.
Lenhardt (285) found his spot on top of the podium by
scoring 4 consecutive wins. Lenhardt not only won all four
bouts, he went unscored upon in the tournament. He pinned
his first opponent in 47 seconds and pinned Harborcreek's
Joe Newara in the finals. In between, he scored two shutouts,
one of them, a 5-0 white washing of state ranked (25th AAA)
Jared Pegher of Fox Chapel, in the semifinals.
Brest (106) also made the finals, but was upset by the
number 6 seed, Trent Donahue of DuBois. Brest held a 4-1
lead at one point, but Donahue came roaring back to post
a 7-4 decision. Andrew posted two pins and beat state ranked
(4th AA) Steve McGarvie of Fort LeBoeuf, 4-1 in the semis.
Mallory (138) took 3rd place. Mallory pinned his first
opponent, but dropped a 4-0 decision to Seneca Valley's
Drew Vlasnik in the quarterfinals. Mallory then rattled
off four straight wins, including an exciting 4-2 overtime
win over Vlasnik in the consolation finals.
Schreiber (132), Jon Carrier (160) Cayden
Connolly (170), Jack Kaulis (182) and Riley
Vaughn (220) helped the team point total for combining
for nine wins, 8 by fall. Kaulis and Vaughn just missed
making the medal rounds when they dropped close decisions
in the consi quarters.
