The Menomonee Falls High School wrestling team walked off the mats with a convincing victory in a dual meet Thursday against Brookfield Central.
The Indians piled it on the Lancers with a 62-12 team victory. The large margin of victory was attributable to five Lancer forfeits. However, even when Lancers stepped into the circle, Falls performed at a high level.
Senior Ayoola Olapo (182 pounds) posted the fasted non-forfeit victory. He pinned Brookfield Central’s Elliot Currie in just 32 seconds, and strolled back to the bench to cheer on his teammates. Junior Alex Koch and freshman Jerrot Holz also pinned their opponents and added to the team tally.
The other Falls wrestlers who posted victories Thursday were:
- James Dow, junior (forfeit)
- Trayvon Handy, junior (forefeit)
- Aaron Daly, sophomore (forfeit)
- Ian Virlee, sophomore (forfeit)
- Bill Holz, sophomore (forfeit)
- Austin Meyers, senior (11-3)
- Sam Schwabenlander, senior (forfeit)
- Jake Fuiten, junior (15-7)
The wrestling team was fresh off a sixth-place team finish at the Battle of the Bay in Green Bay last week. Olapo took the chapionship in the 182 pound weight class.
The Indians improved to 3-0 overall, and 2-0 in the Greater Metro Conference. They’ll head to the Marty Loy Invite in Fond du Lac Saturday.
