The Northern Lebanon Vikings have won the Section Three title after defeating Donegal 67-4. This is their seventh straight Section Three title.
The Vikings are also the defending L-L League Wrestling Champions. They held that crown two years in a row.
The team knows that this is just one more step in the right direction.
“To be honest, we’ve never spoken about it in our room,” Northern Lebanon head coach Rusty Wallace said. “It’s a goal, but not the goal. We talk about the district title and competing at states. We try not to make [winning the section] to be more than it is.”
That is understandable, considering last year the Vikings were in the state finals of the team tournament and also won a District 3 Class 2A team title at the individual meet. They know success on levels beyond the L-L.
