10th ranked senior Isaac Roberson (Chicago, Ill.) earned the 17-8 major decision over David Swanson and gave the Muskies a lift heading into the final weight class matches.
Also earning victories for Lakeland junior Miguel Luis (Oak Lawn, Ill.) and freshman Tom Phalin (Sheboygan, Wis.) Garcia earned the 6-1 decision against Samuel Bramstedt at 165, while Luis got the 11-6 decision over Bryce Howard at 174. Phalin showed he was a contender at 285 and earned the 4-2 decision against Andrew Dorman.
