Wrestler Spencer Lee continues to make up for time lost early last season by racking up tournament titles at events he missed while he was sidelined with a shoulder injury.
Lee, a two-time American Family Insurance ALL-USA selection from Franklin Regional (Murrysville, Pa.), returned to win a third consecutive state title last spring.
Lee, multiple-time world champion heading to Iowa, became the 17th wrestler in the 50-year history of the Powerade Wrestling Tournament to win three titles when he took home the crown in the 126-pound division. He beat Wyoming Seminary’s Jack Davis in the final.
“It’s cool. I’m glad I did it. It’s a statement,” Lee told PennLive.com. “I could have possibly won four had I competed last year and won. It kind of shows that I could have won four.”
Lee was selected to the ALL-USA preseason team in November and is a strong contender for ALL-USA Wrestler of the Year.
