Wrestlers are OHSL champions

The high school wrestling team won the OHSL Liberty Championship on January 27 with a 69-12 win over Syracuse ITT.  It capped off an undefeated season for the Lakers who finished 21-0.  Next for SCS will be the Section III Class C Tournament at Adirondack Central on February 6.
MORE from the Skaneateles Press, by Phil Blackwell:
Far from just an isolated accomplishment, what the Skaneateles wrestling team pulled off, going through an entire season of 21 head-to-head matches without a defeat and earning its first league championship in 35 years, ran deep within its family.
No less than four members of that long-ago 1981 team that last claimed a league title – Jon Leubner, Joe Brillo, Chris Rourke and Jim Simmons – had sons that were key parts of this year’s championship effort.
Together, they saw Skaneateles culminate a journey that began back in 2004, when the program was revived following a 20-year hiatus. Each season, the Lakers improved a bit, and it all led to 2015-16, and a finish atop the Onondaga High School League Liberty division standings.
