Both the Lincoln High wrestling team and their host Whitney looked good on the mats in their preseason match last week.
The match came down to the final bout in which heavyweight Lucas Cook pinned Brody Stone to give the Fighting Zebras a 40-39 victory.
Seven Lincoln wrestlers picked up wins, six were by fall. Dominic DeLeon earned a major decision over the Wildcats’ Jacob McKee, 13-0.
Vacaville has committed to the Mark Fuller Tournament. The Bulldogs will replace El Dorado, which dropped out.
The Zebras are young. Of the 12 bouts in which Lincoln competed against Whitney, only one was a senior – Nick Burns.
Wrestling at 138 pounds, Burns pinned the ‘Cats’ Johnny Stephens.
Zebras head coach Gregory Harlow had five freshmen wrestling against Whitney. The good news, four of them won, although freshman Dylan Shoro was awarded a forfeit at 182 pounds.
At last word, Harlow was still looking to fill gaps at 120 and 126 pounds.
The Mark Fuller Tournament is scheduled for Dec. 8 and promises to be an all-out war with 21 teams lined up to attend. Help give the young Zebras a boost for the 2018-19 campaign and plan to be there.
