LHS hosts County Duals Thursday

Its a great honor for us to host the County Duals," said LHS wrestling coach Joshua Wilkins. "This county has quality wrestling at all ages from elementary ages to collegiate competition.

"The duals are a chance to showcase the high schools best athletes. I have the utmost respect for what Coach Kramer and Coach Mattingly have done at their schools, and our goal remains to build that in the coming years at Lebanon High. Having something like this to show off our facility is part of that."

Wilson Central comes in undefeated in dual matches so far this season (8-0) and fresh off winning the Beech High Dual Meet for the second year in a row.

Seven Wildcat grapplers come in with perfect 8-0 marks, including: Caleb Berta (106), Christian Cerrito (113), Nick Insalaco (126), Eddie Small (132), Austin Richard (138), Perry Baltz (182) and Johnny Kramer (220).

Lebanon High will send a youthful team out on the mats with no seniors on the roster. In addition, the Blue Devils will have six starters out, four due to injury; one suspended and one who is attending a family funeral.
