BATTLE CREEK — Ben Line has learned a lot over the years from his older siblings.

With former Oxford standouts Zach Line and Prescott Line teaching little brother Ben the ropes, the current senior used the advice  andcarved out his own highlight Friday afternoon at Battle Creek’s Kellogg Arena.

With his Oxford wrestling team clinging to a 26-23 advantage heading into the final weight class, the youngest Line pinned Grandville’s Eppe Saarenheimo to the mat in just 1:51 to seal the deal at 215.
