Cros-Lex takes fifth at Marysville

With a 44-26 win over Clio to end the day, Croswell-Lexington earned fifth place at the Marysville Gatorade Duals.

Collin Lieber (160) was the man for the Pioneers, going 5-0 on the day. Tim Eagle (103), Garrett Gelinski (125), Paul Scarmuzzino (145), Keagan Silverthorn (160) and Francisco Puebla also had solid days, going 4-1.

“We wrestled well with some big name schools here,” Pioneers coach Joe Lilly. “I feel like we finished where we should have, we wrestled well.”

Marysville also placed eighth overall on the day after falling to Caro in the seventh place match. With the shorthanded roster, head coach Rocky Palazzolo thought his team had an OK day on the mats.

“We have a lot to work on,”Palazzolo said.  “We have four starters out of the lineup who would make a difference … with what we had, I thought we maybe should have squeaked a few more out, but this tournament gets tougher and tougher every year.”

Flint Kearsley was the team that took the title, topping Eisenhower in the final match, 42-34.

Algonac went 3-2 overall on the day, as Shane Asselin and Mike Nykoriak went 5-0 in the tournament. Mark Langewicz and Brendan Budzeak also went 4-1 on the day.
