Zeb Gnida made the score 30-18 with a win by fall over Jonathan Barns at 152 pounds (1:39) and Jax Flynn made quick work of Mustang Dylan Winkler at 170 pounds, recording a pin in 41 seconds to make it a 33-24 tally.
Seamus Poynton made it 33-30 with a pin of Mount Vernon’s Kayden Pendergrass (1:38) at 182 pounds and Gage Marty knotted the meet at 33 with a 7-1 decision over Clark Younggreen in the 195-pound match.
The Mustangs took a late 36-33 lead with a decision at 220 before Altman took to the mat in the final match.
It was Altman’s second 1-0 win of the night, having started the Solon scoring against Marion in the earlier dual. Altman’s decision over Marion’s Ayden Baker gave the Spartans a short-lived 3-0 lead.
The Indians racked up two forfeits, a major decision and three falls on their way to a 22-3 advantage.
But Solon would win eight of the next nine, starting with Lahr, who delivered a fast pin over Caden McQuerry at 132 pounds (0:22). After giving up a pin at 138, the Spartans tore off six straight by fall to walk away with the victory.
Ethan Swann delivered a pin (1:50) over Lance Wood at 145, Taylor took care of Indian Thomas McAllister (1:46) at 152, Gnida dispatched Ben Gibson in 58 seconds at 160 pounds, Flynn won by fall (2:43) over 170-pounder Isaac Cechota, Poynton battled Abraham Duval to the mat in 3:06 and Marty pinned Marion’s Austin Johnson (0:33) at 195 o put Solon ahead 45-28.
