The Lee’s Summit North wrestling team earned pins in seven of its eight victories to claim a win in its season opener Tuesday.
Four of those falls came in the first period as the Broncos downed visiting Liberty North 45-28 in a non-conference dual.
Cody Steinbrugge (106 pounds) took just 35 second to pin his opponent and tie it 6-6. Caden Schweitzer (113) followed with a third-period pin to put the Broncos ahead.
Four straight pins by Jaden Duran (138), Triston Jones (145), Lane Overton (152) and Adrian Castenada (160) helped the Broncos overcome an 18-12 deficit and take the lead for good.
Zane Ragland (182) won a 3-2 decision and Logan Thornton (195) scored a second-period pin to close out the win.
The North junior varsity fell 36-30.
