Leopards Take 7th, Poyser Wins 160-pound Sectional

The Louisville Leopards boys wrestling team tied with Alliance for seventh place out of 12 teams at the Sectional Tournament at West Branch High School Friday and Saturday.  The team compiled a total score of 86 points.

Lucas Poyser led the Leopards charge by winning the 160-pound weight class over Southeast’s Tylor Brokaw in a 19-4 technical fall.  Poyser had two pins to start the tournament and won a 6-1 decision against Poland’s Mike Audi in the Semifinals.

Dakota Oliver also placed third in the 106-pound weight class by defeating Field’s Vince Dejulius 12-5 in the consolation finals.

Todd Bradley (113) and Logan O’brien (132) placed fourth in their respective weight classes.  Bradley battled back from an early defeat all the way to the consolation finals where he fell to West Branch’s Tyler Pidgeon in 0:41.  Similarly, O’brien lost his first dual match before getting three straight wins that put him the consolation finals.  In the finals he was pinned by Howland’s Andrew Hamilton in 4:05.  The only other wrestler to place was Justin Romy who finished 6th in the 120-pound weight class.

NEXT UP: Those individual wrestlers who qualified for Districts will compete in the District Tournament at Alliance Friday, February 24 and 25.
