LINCOLN — With only limited exposure to both opponents prior to Wednesday’s dual meet against Champaign St. Thomas More and Lincoln High, the Clinton Maroons relied on mental toughness to pull out two key wins on the road.
Clinton first took on a weakened St. Thomas More squad that forfeited seven of the 14 weight classes. The outcome was never in doubt, with the Maroons cruising to an easy 66-15 victory. Included in the win were victories by way of pins by Mason Witzke (113), John Shobe (126), Jordan Butler (132) and Alex Wheat (170).
