On Wednesday night, the Wrestling team hosted the Garden Spot Spartans in a crucial Section 2 matchup. The Spartans entered the match first place in the section, undefeated with a record of 5-0. The Pioneers, who have dealt with injury issues all season long, entered with a 3-1 record.

In the 120 weight class, Connor Erb held Diego Portales off for 6 minutes, making the Pioneer lead insurmountable to clinch the win for the Pioneers. The final score was Garden Spot 27, Lampeter-Strasburg 36. While the Spartans are still in the Section lead, their defeat keeps Elizabethtown and L-S alive in the race for the title. Next up for the Spartans is a trip to Lebanon Monday night to take on the Cedars. Due to cancellations, the Pioneers have to wait until February 9th to take the mat against the Ephrata Mountaineers.
