Key to Awesomeness: Lakeland Wrestling held their annual invitational tournament on Jan. 7. Thanks to the efforts of head coach, Matt Bishop, the contest attracts more teams and better competition each year. With fifteen teams present on Saturday, it truly took a complete team effort between the coaches, varsity and JV wrestlers and the parents to make the day run smoothly. Lakeland was proud to send four wrestlers to the podium this year. Taking first place in the 112 pound division was senior captain Brandon Calma, placing second at 171 was junior captain Chase Kelley, 3rd place at 125 pounds was claimed by senior captain Kyle Babin and taking fourth at 189 pounds was junior Tanner Graham.
