PAINESVILLE, OHIO – After signing 13 student-athletes earlier this summer, Lake Erie College head wrestling coach Kevin Hoogenboom has put the wraps on his second recruiting class with the addition of seven talented grapplers to the Storm program.
"There's a very good mix of experience and talent with these seven wrestlers," Hoogenboom said. "We still have a young squad and this will add leadership to our team and increase the competition for starting spots."
Four of the recruits are transfers and three are straight from the high school ranks. Four are in the middle weight classes, an area where the Storm lacked depth in its inaugural season.
The list of the seven student-athletes is as follows:
Name Class Weight Hometown/High School
Jacob Brown So./So. 157 Jefferson, Ohio/Pymatuning Valley/Waldorf
Tyler Eastman Fr./Fr. 165/174 Sliver Lake, Ohio/Cuyahoga Falls
Jake Hosking Fr./Fr. 157 Milford, Mich./Lake Fenton
Adam Horovitz Fr./Fr. 141/149 Mantua, Ohio/Crestwood
Tom McVicker So./Fr. 125 Forest Hills, Pa./Forest Hills/Penn Hills
Isaac Morisette So./Fr. 133 Clawson, Mich./Southgate/Oakland
Justin Tripp Sr./Jr. 197 Bedford, Ohio/Bedford/Cuyahoga CC
Lake Erie opens its second season on Nov. 5 with its annual Black vs. Green Preview Night and begins competition on Nov. 12 at the University of Mount Union Invitational.
