Lake Fenton — The Lake Fenton varsity wrestling team has a young squad that’s looking at strides of progress on a weekly basis more than wins right now.
The Blue Devils saw some of those signs of progress in two competitive losses at home against Flushing and Corunna on Wednesday.
Lake Fenton lost to Corunna 40-28 and then lost a tighter bout against Flushing 42-36.
“We are a young team,” Lake Fenton varsity wrestling coach Vance Corcoran said. “We only have one or two seniors and we competed. These are good programs and we competed and did what we had to do. They wrestled hard. To come in score 36 on Flushing and 28 on Corunna is all right. We’ll get better.”
The Blue Devils had four wrestlers leave the meet with 2-0 records for the night. Ty Johnson (119) was the only one two leave with two pinfall wins. Jack Conley (130) earned a win by pinfall and forfeit while Zolen Marron (215/285) did the same. Jacob McBride (160) had a victory by pinfall and a tight 3-2 decision victory.
Against Flushing, Aaron Campbell (171), Drake Deem (112) and Gavin Lawrence (152) also had wins. Against Corunna, Joseph Garner (103), also had a victory.
Lake Fenton continues Metro League action when the Blue Devils travel to Swartz Creek for matches against Clio and Owosso on Wednesday.
