February 09, 2011 - The Lake Orion wrestling program had their Senior Night delayed until Monday, Feb. 7 due to snow. However, it was worth the wait as the Dragons beat Orchard Lake St. Mary's High School 5519 as the seniors went undefeated on the night.

The evening also included a ceremony honoring Lake Orion seniors Dom Arnold, Deven Ellis, Adam Gros, Mitch Ladd, and Adam Letica. Ellis (140 lb.), Gros (171 lb.), and Ladd (189 lb.) all pinned their opponents in the first round. Arnold did not wrestle, but will return to action for team and individual districts. Letica had worked very hard in the off-season and was in the varsity lineup at 160 pounds, but suffered a season ending injury in his very first match of the season. All five seniors have contributed to the success of the team this season with their leadership.

Other wrestlers that won a varsity match against St. Mary's included David Moore III (103 lb.), Juan Leon (119 lb.), Cameron Masters (125 lb.), John Atwater (130 lb.), Phil Berges (135 lb.), Ethan Gros (160 lb.), and John Yeglinski (215 lb.).

"It was great to see all three seniors who wrestled go out with a victory by first period fall; very appropriate," said coach Cory Kuzinski. "They've all worked hard and grown up a lot over the last four years.

"I'm very proud of them and excited for their future."

Lake Orion is now 21 12 on the season. Lake Orion will next host the MHSAA team districts at 6 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 10, at Lake Orion High School. The Dragons will wrestle Pontiac in the first round. The winner will wrestle for a district championship against either Rochester Adams or Troy.
