Black River 32, Lutheran West 30

In their second dual of the day, the Longhorn Wrestlers found themselves facing the defending conference tournament champion Black River.  The Longhorns were without freshman Carter Deblock (shoulder), junior Izaak Zrnich (knee) and senior Zach Prah was not yet eligible for the 285 lb. weight class.  Despite missing two varsity starters the Longhorns kept the dual very close.
Freshman Tim Mecklenburg, senior captain Ryan Rusnak, junior Chance Huey and junior Gevin Maxwell all had pins for the Longhorns.  Junior captain Bryce Deblock lost an 11-0 major decision to state place-winner Mike Hozan.  Junior captain Andrew Liese lost a major decision to Black River’s district qualifier Maund.  Those two major decisions were enough in the end to let Black River squeak out a 32-30 win.
“Each year we are getting closer and closer to knocking them off,” stated Coach Dave Ressler.  “All we needed was one of our starters back and we would’ve won this dual.  This tells you how competitive we are going to be this year and how close the PAC-12 race will be.”
