ROCKY RIVER -- 
In the final home match of the season the Longhorn wrestlers dominated the Hurricanes of Brooklyn on Alumni, Senior and youth wrestling night at the Rock.  Lutheran West remains unbeaten in the Stripes division at 4-0. 
 
The match began with Senior Gabriel Petkac receiving a forfeit at 182.  After a double forfeit at 195, freshman Kristian Bremer scored a second period pin to put the ‘Horns up 12-0.  Senior Zach Prah got a forfeit at heavyweight to increase the lead to 18-0.  LW freshman Tim Mecklenburg pinned Brooklyn sophomore Dominic Meehan in the second period to give him his team leading 24th win.  Freshman Elijah Mooneyham took the forfeit at 113.  Junior Bryce Deblock was bumped up to 120 to take on state alternate Lewis Roginsky.  Deblock fought hard and kept from getting pinned and gave up the technical fall to put Brooklyn on the board with 5 points.  Senior Ryan Rusnak defeated the other Roginsky brother 8-4 to give Lutheran West a 33-5 lead.
 
Junior Nicole Swanson fought into the second period but was pinned by her Brooklyn opponent.  The Longhorns got a pin from junior Chance Huey in the third period of his bout to give them 39 points.  Sophomore Kevin McLain filled in for the sick Gevin Maxwell at 145 but could not stop senior Casey Bishop from pinning him.  That was it for Brooklyn’s scoring as the ‘Horns took the last three bouts with a pin by junior C.J. McNamee and two forfeits.  Coach Dave Ressler commented on his team’s performance, “The team really came together in this dual.  Everyone fought hard and we had some really big wins.”
