Trevor Leonard didn’t win the 132-pound weight class at the Lancaster-Lebanon League wrestling championships. He dominated it.
Not unlike he and his Northern Lebanon mates did in the team portion of the event.
On Friday and Saturday at Garden Spot High School, Leonard logged three falls on his way to the 132-pound title. In his final bout, Leonard scored an early take-down then decked Gary Clark of Garden Spot at the 1:03 mark.
Leonard’s weekend performance upped his personal mark to 32-4.
His showing also contributed to the Vikings’ overwhelming team effort. Northern Lebanon piled up 237.5 team points to surpass runner-up Manheim Central by 55.5 points and become the first Lebanon County, Section Three and Class AA squad to ever win the L-L League team title.
With that in their back pockets, the Vikings have now set their sights on District Three Class AA and PIAA team glory. Leonard also has high aspirations for himself in the individual portion of the wrestling postseason, which gets underway in the middle of next month.
