145 - LANGE
A senior, Lange ended an immaculate career with a third-place finish at the Division II state tournament this season. He won the Central Buckeye Conference meet and was runner-up at the sectional and district tournaments. Lange finishes his career as a three-time state qualifier and two-time state placer. He became the all-time wins leader at Indian Lake with a 147-36 record. Lange also captured three Central Buckeye Conference titles during his career, something no area wrestler has ever done.
152 - WALLBROWN
A senior, Wallbrown defied odds and overcame an injury-plagued wrestling career to place third at the Division II state tournament this winter. He ended his season with a 43-5 record after capturing individual sectional and district championships. He was also runner-up at the Central Buckeye Conference meet. Wallbrown became the first Indian Lake wrestler since 2005 to win an individual district championship. At the state meet, Wallbrown defeated the projected state champion and two returning state placers on his way to finishing third.
