Menomonee Falls wrestlers win Greater Metro tourney title

Feb. 01, 2013 11:07 p.m. | Menomonee Falls wrestling coach Jim McMahon has developed the club team, he has searched every corner and hallway in the school, and he has attended countless youth tournaments.

And all for the moment that occured Friday night at Marquette, when his happy Indian team, fresh off winning a share of their first Greater Metro Conference title in seven years with the hard-won league tourney crown, called over the coaches and made sure that they were in the countless team pictures that were being taken.

"We have a really great group of kids," said McMahon, "and it's not just the 14 (on varsity). Great kids and great parents who have put a lot of energy and time into this. Club kids, kids from the hallways. It's a credit to all of them. Really a great credit."

The Indians picked up individual championships from Aaron Daly at 106 pounds, Bill Holz at 120, Casey Crangle at 126, Sam Schwabenlander at 145 and Ayoola Olapo at 182 en route to a title-earning total of 246.5 points.

West Allis Central was second with 218 and West Allis Hale, which beat the Indians last week for the GMC dual meet crown, was third with 204.
