Lucas Roe is ranked No. 2 at 160 lbs. in Class AA, and the Grand Meadow/LeRoy-Ostrander/Kingsland wrestler proved it last Saturday with a first place finish at the annual Fillmore Central/Lanesboro/Mabel-Canton Holiday Wrestling Tournament in Harmony.

On his way to the championship, Roe got wins over Chris Wisted (Winona, TF 17-2), Nathan Suhr (Decorah, 11-4) and Sam McPhail (Pine Island, 3-0). With the three wins at Harmony, Roe is now 9-1 for the season.

Wyatt Richardson, GMLOK's 182 pounder, took third at the holiday tournament. Richardson got a pin over Sam Fryer (Chatfield, 1:33) in the first round, lost a 3-2 decision to Monty Holm (FCLMC) in the semifinals and then beat Bradley Schultz (PEM, 4-1) for the bronze medal. GMLOK's Parker Hale (145 lbs.) took fourth place, winning in the first round over Jake Timm (Winona, 4:34), then losing his next two matches to Thomas Miller (PEM, 4-15) and Adam Pleschcourt (Pine Island, 0-8). Richardson is currently 5-4 on the season and Hale has a 1-2 record.

Also competing for the Bulldogs were Jace Bunne (132 lbs., 2-2), Blake Olson (138 lbs., 2-2) and Sam Roe (152 lbs., 1-2). Both of Bunne's wins were pins, and he is now 4-4 on the season. Olson also got two pins and is now 5-6 on the season. Roe's win was a fall and is now 2-5 on the season.

Friday night GMLOK hosts Chatfield, at Grand Meadow, for a TRC match.
