Lakeshore High School vs Niles High School
24 44

Highly ranked Niles looked to return to the top and advance to the regional round of the team tournament, but the Vikings knew that they would have to dethrone defending champion Lakeshore to move on. Lakeshore’s young squad hung with Niles, leading the Vikings 24-23 through the 145 pound match. The Vikings strength up top shut the door on the Lancers as the Vikings would win the final five matches, after trailing most of the dual, to advance to the regional round. Lakeshore will now turn its focus to MHSAA Individual Districts seeking to crown the next individual state champion.
