Joel Lemburg shows off his 100-win poster after accomplishing that feat earlier this season at the Lakeview Invite. Friday in Ashland he set the program career pin record with his 90th win by pinfall.

Lakeview wrestling rolled through the Jack Murray Invite at Ashland-Greenwood on Friday, earning three gold medals, six silver, two bronze, two fourth and one fifth while rising to the top of the team standings and taking the championship by 50.5 points over York.

The Vikings have won the team championship three out of four years at the tournament. 

Every single wrestler came home with a medal. 

Hayden Johnston at 113 pounds, Class B No. 6 Joel Lemburg at 138 and Austen Smith at 195 were the gold medalists.

"It was a great team effort," head coach Jeff Bergen said. "Guys had a great week of practice and I thought we wrestled pretty well." 

Johnston went 3-0, pinning all three of his opponents in a combined four minutes and 17 seconds. 

Lemburg also went 3-0 with three pinfalls including one over Class C No. 7 Austin Cole of Broken Bow. He pinned his opponents in a combined 3:43. 

Lemburg also set the Lakeview career pin record with 90. 

"He has a good shot to get 100 career pins if he keeps doing what he's doing," Bargen said. "That's really exciting and would be a great accomplishment. We're really proud of Joel. He's been an animal for us for four years. For him to get that record was pretty awesome."  

Smith went 2-0 with one pin. 

Owen Bargen at 106, Kevin Dominguez at 120, Lucien Engel at 126, No. 8 Logan Jaixen at 132, Landon Ternus at 170 and No. 8 Austin Rollman at 220 were the silver medalists.
