GCWCOA ALL-STAR PREVIEW --  On Saturday November 23, Lutheran West was represented by two wrestlers, junior Tim Mecklenburg and senior Jake DeLorge in the Greater Cleveland All-Star Meet held at Normandy High School.  Seventeen matches were held in the event filled with District and State Qualifiers and Champions from the Greater Cleveland Area. 
 
Mecklenburg took on State Alternate Alec Bendetti from North Royalton.  Bendetti scored the first three points of the match but Mecklenburg chipped away at the lead and with 10 seconds left, down 4-3, Mecklenburg scored the winning takedown.  Mecklenburg was the first Division III wrestler of the night to defeat a Division I wrestler.  In the twelfth bout of the evening DeLorge took on State seventh place finisher, Jairod James of Bedford.  DeLorge kept it close for two periods but was unable to score an offensive point and lost a decision 9-3. 
 
The annual All-Star Meet raises money for college scholarships to wrestlers of member schools.  Lutheran West graduate Andrew Liese won the Don Ferris Memorial Scholarship this past season.
