LOCKLAND — For the first time in school history, East Clinton finished as runnerups in a tournament. The Astros were second in the Lockland Invitational Saturday night.

“I was very excited about our performance at Lockland,” said EC coach Doug Stehlin. “Since beginning our high school program in 2009, this was our first team trophy that we earned. Our guys went out there and wrestled very well. It is a good day when all nine guys place, you have six guys in the finals for first and win three of those. Williamsburg won the tournament and we matched up with them four times in the finals and won two of those matches.”

Champions for the Astros were Austin Brock at 120, Noah Morgan at 145 and Thomas Wright at 152. Morgan and Wright had two pins each.

Cameron Bloch at 170, DJ Perry at 182 and Kalob Williams at 132 were all runnersup in their respective weight classes.

Josh Jones was third at 106, Samuel Morgan was third at 138 and Charles Erdman was fourth at 160.
