MANDATA - It's somewhat ironic that in a year in which Line Mountain has trouble fielding a full team, there was so much interest in the Eagles' dual meet tournament there will actually be two of them.

The Eagles hosted seven teams Saturday, and will have another round of dual meets next week in conjunction with the school's annual junior high tournament.

And for a team which has been forfeiting as many as six classes in some dual meets this season, the host Eagles did surprisingly well, winning their last three meets after dropping the first two to raise their record on the season to 4-6.

The Eagles lost to Canton in the first round, 47-26, then dropped a 45-21 decision to eventual champion Mount Union, but came back for consecutive wins over Pottsville, 36-35; South Williamsport, 42-33; and Great Valley 28-24 to take fifth place.

"Our goal was to go 3-2," said Line Mountain coach Mike Martz. "We have some things to work on but so does everyone. The good thing about these events is that you get to see all of your guys wrestle matches and get a feel for how they'll do later in the tournaments."

Seth Lansberry, Erik Smeltz and Cameron Newman all went 5-0 on the day for the Eagles. Lansberry improved to 18-1, Smeltz to 15-5 and Newman to 14-5.

The Eagles got their win over Pottsville when Blake Carl, wrestling at 132, avoided a pin in taking a loss by technical fall at 132. Colton Zimmerman then won by forfeit at 138, giving the Eagles the one-point win.

The Eagles trailed Great Valley 24-21 in their final match but got wins in the final two bouts. Lansberry was a 9-1 winner over Shane Ruhnke at 145, and Britton Heim decisioned Nate Tang 5-1 at 152.

Mount Union defeated Lewisburg 57-18 in the championship round of the tournament.

Among the teams who will visit Line Mountain for next week's event are Southern Columbia, Oley Valley, Harrisburg and North Penn (Blossburg).
