This season more wrestling teams are getting together for duel matches, three way and quad matches as opposed to the big all day and weekend tournaments of recent seasons.  One of the reasons for that according to Lexington Wrestling coach Brent Rastetter is because of the State Duels Regional Semifinals which will be held on three consecutive Wednesdays beginning on January 23rd, with the State Duels Finals being held at St.John Arena in Columbus on Saturday, February 9th.  The team sectionals begin the following Friday. 

Lexington improved to 15-4 on the season beating Galion 63-15, though it should be noted coach Brent Tyrrell's Tigers had several wrestlers out due to illness.   A couple of bright spots for Galion were 120lb state qualifier Zac Tupps (13-1) who pinned his first opponent Lex's Max Baker, but fell in his second match for the first time this season to state qualifier Sam Valenti of Hillard Darby 6-5.  Galion could also have an up and coming star in freshman 145lb Drake Barnett (7-4) who defeated Lex's Jordan Dalton by decision. 

Winners for Lexington were Josh Lehner, Bailey Faust, Brandon Leynaud, Nate Temple, Jonah Schropp, Drew Kasper and Jon Watkins.  Defending state champion Lehner improved to 19-0, winning both of his matches by pin.  Faust also improved to 18-0 on the season winning his match by pin as he wrestles up in weight at 220lbs, despite weighing 201lbs.
