McLellan goes 2-0 in duals, leads Wildcats
The LHS Wildcats traveled a little out of state to see a familiar foe and a Missouri foe in a pair of friendly duals, but the overall scores weren’t so friendly. Louisburg, fielding a team with 5 open weight classes, gave up some insurmountable leads in each dual, but there were some highlights to the evening. The final scores were LHS 18, Prairie View 48 and LHS 9, Adrian 54.
Junior Kyle McLellan (220 lbs.) was the lone Wildcat to go 2-0 on the evening. McLellan scored two falls against his opponents. Junior Austen Scott (132 lbs.) won a tough match against his Adrian opponent, scoring the winning points in the last few seconds. Junior Curtis Lemke (152 lbs.) opened his evening with a quick pin against his Prairie View opponent as well. Junior Cullen Hood (126 lbs.) bumped up a weight to fill in for his sick brother and lost a tough match against his Prairie View opponent, falling in double overtime, but he also suffered an elbow injury during his match, which prevented him from competing against Adrian.
LHS was also represented by freshman Logan Glenn (106 lbs.), freshman Austin Huber (113 lbs.), freshman Zach Knox (120 lbs.), junior Greyson Honsinger (182 lbs.), and junior Konnor Cook (285 lbs.). Glenn, Huber, and Cook are regular fixtures in the varsity line-up, but Knox filled in when Cullen Hood bumped up and Honsinger is filling in for John Hamamy.
The Wildcats are ready to turn around and get back to work. This weekend, we host our annual Wildcat Classic Wrestling Invitational. Several top teams from across the state will be coming, including Seaman, Lansing, Shawnee Heights, and Tonganoxie.
