Lee remains in the hunt
Titusville’s 160-pounder Ehrin Lee had a mixture of heartbreak and sweet redemption in his two bouts of the day. Lee opened his tournament with a 3-2 tiebreaker loss to Academy Park’s Abner Thompson.
“In a tournament like this you have to let it go,” Lee said about his opening round loss. “If you don’t then it will just eat you up.”
Lee had no problem putting it behind him in his first round consolation match. Lee led from the start to record a 10-3 decision over Lucas Markowitz of Delaware Valley.
“It’s huge,” Lee said. “But there is going to be more pressure tomorrow to win that first one to place.”
