Last Friday the Lancer Wrestling team took first place in the annual Districts Meet. Originally it was announced that there was a three-way tie between the Lancers, SM South and SM West however today it was announced that the Lancers were the outright district champions.
“We had some young guys really step up for us,” senior wrestler Ben Randolph said. “With all of the skin diseases going around it’s good to know that we have guys there who can back us up when we need them.” The Lancers have been plagued with different skin diseases over the last couple weeks and competed at districts without nine of their varsity wrestlers.
“The good news is we are finally starting to get healthy,” Randolph said. “Hopefully be the time we get to state we can be at full strength.
