Lineup shuffle pays off for Panthers in H-10 sweep
ATLANTIC — Creston/O-M wrestling coach Darrell Frain played a hunch after Atlantic coach Tim Duff elected to start their Hawkeye 10 dual Thursday by forfeiting to Panther three-time state champ Jake Marlin, who was placed up a weight class at 145.
With Atlantic thin in the middle weights and lacking a 152-pounder, Frain elected to insert freshman Cam Leith into that position and receive a forfeit victory, and then move juniors Gavin Leith, Adam Baker and Trevor Frain up two weight classes from their normal positions.
Despite giving up considerable weight in all those matches — which included Atlantic’s fifth-ranked Matt Williamson against Frain at 182 — the Panthers won two of those three matches and then later picked up two key victories at heavyweight and 106 to claim a 37-24 victory.
