On Tuesday, the Western Boone Wrestling team traveled to Tri-West for the 15th dual meet of the season. Both teams have struggled to fill their rosters this year, so there were only four contested matches. Western Boone won three of those matches and walked away with a 29-24 victory.
At 145lbs, Jaden Bailey took advantage of a forfeit to improve his season record to 16 wins and only 4 losses.
Ethan Williams (152lbs) started strong, getting the first takedown of the match, but eventually succumbed to the Bruins’ Jacob Malicoat by fall in the second period.
Brant Pitcher also benefited from a forfeit at the 160lbs weight class. Pitcher’s season record now stands at 12 wins and 8 losses.
Trevor Weakley (170lbs) once again had a solid performance against a scrappy opponent. The match ended in a technical fall for Weakley in the third period. Weakley’s undefeated streak has increased to 19 matches.
In the heavyweight division, Perrin Emberton got his second win in a row, pinning Tri-West’s Peyton Hays 28 seconds into the second period.
The final match of the evening was at the 132lbs weight class. Mason Adams needed just 1 minute and 33 seconds to pin his opponent and improve his record to 19 wins and 2 losses.
The Stars will host the Eastern (Greentown) Comets on Thursday. This will be the first time the two squads have faced each other in a dual meet.
