SPRINGFIELD — The Lebanon wrestling team continues to dominate opponents as the ‘Jackets picked up two victories on Tuesday night over the Parkview Vikings and Branson Pirates at Parkview  High School.

LHS kicked things off against the Pirates, defeating BHS 58-11.

The match of the night came in the 120-pound weight class where junior Hunter Lewis defeated Colton Chrisman via pin in the first period. The win was No. 100 for Lewis in his varsity wrestling career, and he was awarded a plaque for the accolade.

“I was proud of the way Hunter wrestled,” Lebanon head coach Randy Roark said. “It is always a big accomplishment when you can get 100 varsity victories, and hopefully he has plenty of more wins left in him.

“We are going to need him down the stretch.”

Securing victories by pin for the ‘Jackets were Hogan Fisher (113), Lewis, Ty Glendenning (182), and Race Cottongim (285).

Also picking up wins were Cole Patten (106), Cole Roark (126), Cade Schmitz (132), Trevor Christian (152), Jake Henson (170), Caleb Brown (195) and Landen Smith (220).

In an Ozark Conference matchup, Lebanon defeated Parkview 75-3 in a breeze of a match for the ‘Jackets.

Lebanon started off with four open matches to begin the match to take a quick 24-0 lead before Schmitz (132) was able to pin his opponent followed by another pin by Hayden Dearborn (138) to extend the lead to 36-0.

Christian (152), Ben Arl (160), Henson (170), Glendenning (182) Brown (195) Smith (220), and Cottongim (220) were also victorious in their matches.

Lebanon remains undefeated in dual matches on the season and will next wrestle in the Ozark Conference tournament that will be held on Saturday morning at 10:30 a.m. at Parkview High School.

“We are looking forward to getting better,” Roark said about the OC tournament. “We expect to wrestle well, and we need to go out there and get going early.”

Lebanon won the OC tournament a year ago and were able to crown five wrestlers Ozark Conference chahmpions in 2017.
