Bremenâ€™s Abraham Hall recorded three pinfall victories for the 285-pound championship and was named the Outstanding Wrestler of the meet at the John McKee Memorial Wrestling Invitational at Rochester Friday.
John Glennâ€™s Katie Dreessen scored a game-high 15 points as the Lady Falcons snapped a three-game losing streak with a 55-44 win on the road at South Bend Clay last Tuesday.
ROCHESTER â€” Success in the football season meant a slow start for Bremen in the wrestling season, but the Lions finally seemed to be taking off Friday.

NORTH JUDSON â€” Class 2A No. 6 North Judson got off to a slow start and led by just three points at the half, but the Bluejays used a strong second half to remain unbeaten versus LaVille.
Judson opened the third quarter on a 10-0 run and put up 37 points after the break while holding the visiting Lancers to only 12 in a 67-39 win at Judson Friday.
LaVille head coach Michael Edison said North Judsonâ€™s Kendall Hochstedler made the difference in the game the second half.

â€śNo excuses. We knew they had gotten to rest the night before, but we were coming over here to compete. Thatâ€™s all there was to it. It wasnâ€™t an option to not show up and not compete,â€ť said Plymouth head coach Ryan Bales.
