The Lutheran West Wrestling Team set the school record for the best start of a season ever defeating Shaker Heights to improve to 7-0. Leading the Longhorn wrestlers were Freshman Tim Mecklenburg, junior captain Bryce Deblock, senior captain Ryan Rusnak, freshman Ryan Moore and senior Gabriel Petkac who all pinned their opponents. 
The non-conference match started at 120 lbs. where freshman Carter Deblock fought hard but lost a major decision to his Shaker opponent.  Down 4-0, the Longhorns bounced right back with pins by Rusnak at 126 lbs. and a forfeit at 132 lbs. for junior Izaak Zrnich.  Shaker got back on the board with a 4-3 win at 138 lbs. to cut the score to 12-7.  The Longhorns went up 18-7 with a forfeit at 145 lbs.  Shaker got a pin at 152 lbs. to put the score at 18-13.  Moore came up huge for the Longhorns by recording a third period pin.  After forfeiting the 170 lb. weight class, Petkac got another third period pin for the Longhorns and increased their lead to 30-19.  Shaker received forfeits at 195, 220 and 285 to take a 37-30 lead with two weight classes to go.
Mecklenburg cut the lead to one point by securing a second period pin of his opponent.  Deblock gave the Longhorns the victory with another second period pin.  The final score was Lutheran West 42 Shaker Heights 37.
