MAINE EAST - In their dual meet against Maine East and Proviso West, the Lane Tech Wrestling team was victorious against both teams with a score of 75-3 against Proviso West, and a score of 38-37 against Maine East. Key wrestlers in this meet included Luke Miller, Josiah Powell, Marcos Johnson, Conor Devlin, Samy Ahmed Yahia, Carlos Perez, Matt Ridley, and Natalie Cortes.
Juniors Luke Miller and Josiah Powell have been extremely successfull this season, holding records of 10-0 and 8-2, respectively. However, the rest of the team is not far behind: Marcos Johnson is 6-4, Conor Devlin is 2-2, Samy Ahmed Yahia is 6-1, Carlos Perez is 8-2, and Natalie Cortes is 8-2. With results like these, we can only see a fantastic rest of the season, especially with the help of Coach Yan. If the Indians keep up this streak, it is very possible for them to take the city title and beat last year’s city champions, Taft.
The wrestling team moves on with a 12-2 record, as they look towards their next home meet in Gym 1 at 5:30 against their toughest competitor, Taft, on December 12th. We wish them the best of luck on the rest of their season and hope to secure another win for our school.
