Lynch took first at 138 pounds, and Clothier was first at 170.
Alex Jones bagged second place at 285, and Garrett Girard and Andrew Denning were third at 126 and 182, respectively.

“For our first tournament coming back off break, it was really good,” LHS coach Pat Naughton said. “Everybody won a match. Everybody was excited about wrestling again. It was a real good day for everybody. We only brought 10 guys, but we were still able to score enough points to place third in a tough tournament.”
Next action for the Lions is Friday and Saturday at the Newton Tournament.
