            Winter break and two pounds didn’t slow down Hunter Hagen.

            The 195 resumes his impressive campaign to the State Tournament by breaking the all-time wins record at West Hancock.

            The senior collected seven victories in duals this week, two forfeits and five pin falls.

            Hagen put away Jacob Smith of Clarke in 15 seconds at the St. Edmond Duals on Saturday.

            Hagen now leads the entire program with 144 wins, securing his place in Eagles history on Saturday over Michael Tlach who finished his career with 139.

            Hagen will keep deepening the divide between first and second as the season rolls on.

            The dual team struggled and battled to a 4-3 record this week.
