The Longhorn Wrestlers only brought seven wrestlers down to the Holiday Tournament at Tippecanoe High School, but six of the seven placed in the tournament.  Leading the team were freshman Tim Mecklenburg and junior Bryce Deblock, placing first and third respectively.
The pool style tournament saw both Mecklenburg and Deblock win their pools.  Mecklenburg then pinned his East Knox opponent in the semifinal while Deblock got pinned by state qualifier Carter from Northridge.  In the championship Mecklenburg secured a reversal and pin in the second period to give him his second title of the season.  Deblock made short work of his Belmont opponent in the third place final with a takedown and pin in 46 seconds. 
Other Longhorns placing in the tournament were juniors Chance Huey (fifth), Gevin Maxwell (sixth), Andrew Liese (sixth) and senior Zach Prah (eighth).  “I was pleased with how we wrestled down here,” stated Coach Dave Ressler.  “I wish we could have brought more.”  The team placed tenth overall in the 15 team tournament.
