In his first high school wrestling match, Lancaster junior Connor Flynn collected a second-period pin against Jacob Sheperd of Belmont-Platteville.

LANCASTER - Following six matches to kick off the 2011-12 wrestling season, three individuals from the Lancaster varsity squad remain unbeaten, with three others having just one loss.

Coach Brad Sturmer’s squad first kicked off the season last Friday night with a dual meet against visiting Belmont-Platteville.

With six pins, three forfeits, one technical fall and one decision, the Flying Arrows came out victorious with a 62-17 final.

Collecting pins for the Arrows were freshman Cole Martin at 113 pounds, sophomore Kyle Mezera at 126, sophomore Dan Rice at 138, sophomore Trenton Cornell at 145, senior Curtis Olson at 285, and perhaps the most exciting, junior Connor Flynn at 195.

From there, the Arrows participated in the Reedsburg Duals on Saturday, where coach Sturmer’s squad went 4-1 to finish second among the seven-team field behind Sparta (5-0).

Lancaster suffered a 43-24 loss to Sparta to start off the day, but then collected wins of 54-19 over Oregon, 47-19 over Reedsburg, 48-36 over Weston, and 54-19 over Monroe.

Going a perfect 5-0 on the day were Cole Martin, Kyle Mezera and Trenton Cornell, while freshmen Tyson Wolfe and David Chadd, along with Dan Rice and junior Trae Mezera all went 4-1.

So far this season, Martin, Kyle Mezera and Cornell are all 6-0, while Wolf, Rice and Trae Mezera are 5-1.

This Thursday night the Arrows will host Richland Center, then will participate in the Tomah Scramble on Saturday.
