Week One: Eastlake North Tri.

The wrestling team started the season on a rather sour note on Wednesday with a pair of defeats at the Eastlake North Tri. meet. Against Ashtabula Lakeside, a team that beat the Panthers 45-24 last year, we were leading the until the final three matches and dropped a 45-30 decision. This total included two forfeits by us, which accounted for 12 points for the Dragons. In the second dual, against North and a team that beat us by a 61-6 score last year, the grapplers got off to a slow start and were behind early 24-0. They charged back behind the leadership, and pins, by our upperclassmen only to fall short again by the score of 51-30. Multiple winners for the team were Rynell Roper, Zak Adkins, and Lamar Gunter. The matches that follow are of the winning wrestlers.
