ROCKY RIVER --  Parker Watson's 4th place finish at the MIT led the Longhorns to a 34th place finish as a team. Watson dropped his semi-final bout to the eventual champion Luke Baughman (ranked #2 in the state) from Wadsworth but came back to avenge a earlier season loss to Conner DeBoe (ranked 13th) from Mentor in the consolation quarterfinals. Watson avenged the loss by being aggressive and scoring a takedown and two back points to take a 4-1 lead into the third period. Watson quickly escaped for another point in the beginning of the third period but was then taken down by DeBoe. Watson escaped and sealed the match with another takedown to win 8-4. In the finals Watson dropped a 10-3 decision to Derek Fields (ranked 9th) from Brunswick. Watson becomes the first placer since James Handwerk was the 2017 MIT Champion. Two other Longhorns had advanced to day two of the MIT. Robert Pinkie lost his 3rd round consolation bout and Donovan Palmer lost a heartbreaking 4th round consolation match 5-4 to come one match shy of placing. Lutheran West has never had two placers at the MIT. The team travels to Perry (Lake County) for the PIn City Tournament on Friday and Saturday.
