wrestlingThe Lansing Varsity Wrestling team took to the mats this past weekend at the Fourth Annual Groton Holiday Duals Tournament to test their skills against five other local schools.  The Bobcat grapplers took the mat five times in the duals format and came away with an overall victorious team records of 3-2.  It was an exciting day as the team began the tourney with a win over Marathon.  They continued their run with impressive victories over Groton and Southern Cayuga to finish out the morning session.   The afternoon proved more challenging for the Bobs as they registered their first loss of the day to overall tournament winner and undefeated, Cazenovia.  The final dual brought with it some hard fought matches, and ended with a close loss to Moravia.
