You can throw records out when you get to the postseason. 

Highland Park’s Matthew Salcena was presumably all for that, after compiling a 7-10 slate in the regular season. 

Salcena, a senior multi-sport athlete for the Giants, fought back to win four straight matches after a first-round loss to claim third in the 195-pound weight class Saturday, Feb. 2, at the IHSA Libertyville Regional.
