Bouis went unbeaten to win the heavyweight division, while Hyde was the runner-up in the 170 weight class and Long finished third among 160-pounders.

“This was the first time we participated in an individual tournament this season,” said LHS coach Craig Oren. “For many of our wrestlers, this was their first time in this format and they responded well. Despite having seven first-year guys, we placed sixth overall.

“Everyone wrestled hard and demonstrated a lot of growth,” he added. “In particular, Grant continues to show advancing skill and Thomas is one of our senior leaders on a generally young team. Sam continued his undefeated streak this season. All in all, this was a great experience for our team against a lot of stiff competition.”

Lancaster had four wrestlers finish fourth, including Trevor Smith (126), Kenique Stewart (145), Beau Nickerson (160) and Brandon Hill (170).

“Two of our freshmen, Trevor and Brandon, had big quarterfinal wins that got them to the semifinals,” said Oren.

Lancaster’s Jamie Coates (138) and Orlando Johnson (152) finished in sixth place in their divisions, while John Martin (132) took seventh.

Lancaster will head to Franklin this Saturday, January 11, for the Franklin Duals and will host the Lancaster Quad at Lancaster Middle School next Thursday, January 16.
