AKRON — It's just another winter in the life of Newfane wrestling.

The Panthers clinched their seventh consecutive Niagara-Orleans League title Wednesday night, taking down Akron, 66-19, in a split dual at Akron High School that also featured Royalton-Hartland and Wilson. Newfane (5-0 N-O) also won its 35th straight league dual and clinched seven straight undefeated N-O seasons.


Niagara Wheatfield is currently third in the Niagara Frontier League standings, but Wednesday was a historic night for one of the school's all-time best. Justin McDougald secured a pinfall win over North Tonawanda's Joseph Pasiak to help the Falcons earn a 58-27 win over the Lumberjacks.
