On Thursday, the Lions traveled to Manchester University for the HCAC Dual Championships. The Lions won by a final score of 44-3, only losing in one weight class.

In the 125-pound weight class, Charlie Heyob (Loveland, OH/Loveland) won by forefeit as Manchester did not have anyone to match up in this class. The 133-pound weight class was the only class where Manchester earned any points. In the 141-pound weight class Wayne Black (Indianapolis, IN/Pike), ranked sixth nationally, won by a major decision, 17-6. In the 149 and 157-pound weight classes, Luis Godines (Cincinnati, OH/Madeira) and Tommy Fehring (Amelia, OH/Glen Este), respectively, won both by pin. Godines pinned his opponent at 2:19, while Fenhring pinned his opponent at 2:16. 

Cory Disbennett (Bethel, OH/Bethel-Tate) continued his winning run by pinning his opponent in the 165-pound weight class, in just 57 seconds. The Lions sent Tyler Ray (Middletown, OH/Lakota East) out for the 174-pound class, and he was unopposed, resulting in a forfeit win for the Lions. Nolan Karwoski (Carmel, IN/Carmel) produced the only major victory of the night for the Lions, winning his match by a score of 23-9, in the 184-pound division. In the 197-pound weight class, Justin Meineke (Batavia, OH/McNicholas) won a close match by a score of 4-2. In the last match the Lions sent heavyweight Sean Brooks (Englewood, OH/Northmont) to the mat, and he earned a win for the Lions with a score of 3-2.

This is the Lions fifth conference title in six years, and the first for Head Coach Casey Brewster. The Lions will continue their season with the March 2 Mideast Regional Tournament in Ada, Ohio, as the Mount wrestlers look to qualify to the March 15-16 NCAA Division III National Tournament.
