In fact, Hissom, the Lakers’ 189-pounder, hasn’t had much competition from anyone. Hissom has lost just twice all year, with both of those losses coming to Greenville’s two-time state champion Jordan Thomas.

On Wednesday, Hissom scored a pair of pins as the Lakers won twice, beating Orchard View, 37-35 and Ludington, 51-24.

“There’s not a lot of competition for me in the Lakes Eight, so I just have to go out and get the job done,” Hissom said.

Spring Lake remains two wins behind Fremont and one win behind Fruitport in the Lakes Eight standings. In order to keep pace with the first-place Packers and the second-place Trojans, the Lakers needed a clutch win by Harry Kriger to get past OV.
