Foran’s Ryan Luth earned a milestone 200th career victory during the Lions’ 41-24 loss to Xavier in a dual meet at Foran High School Thursday.
Luth, a 152-pound senior, pinned Xavier’s Ryan Miner in 2 minutes and 27 seconds to reach win No. 200, making him the only the second person in Connecticut history to reach the plateau.
Ledyard’s T.J. Hepburn set the state record when he finished his career with 200 victories back in 2007. Luth won the New England Championship last year at 145 pounds and was a New Haven Register All-Area selection.
