Wrestlers Finish Fourth at Tough Boys Town Tourney

Posted: 12/13/2011 - by

18 schools made the trip to this past weekend's tournament held at Boys Town in Omaha which included multiple state champions from around the area.  The Boys Town Invitational has been known to house tough competition yet L.C. still managed to have two individual champions at 138 and 160 and placed 4th as a team.

Nick Sulentic (138 pounds) and Zeb Wahle (160 pounds) came out of the two day tournament as champions. First year coach Duke Burk's  L.C. Titans manage 151 team points, which fell short of the tournament champion Omaha Skutt which accumulated 234 team points.

Lewis Central crowned their two champions as Sulentic defeated Harlan's John Schwarte by a 10-2 major decision and Wahle handled Tekamah-Herman's Dalton Jenkins by a 13-4 major decision in the finals.

Although L.C. couldn't repeat as champions, they fought hard and things are looking up as they look forward to this coming weekend's tournament in Fort Dodge.
