MT. ORAB — Clinton-Massie edged Wilmington Saturday in the Hammer & Anvil wrestling tournament but neither team threatened the tournament leaders.
Massie was ninth with 96 points and Wilmington was 10th with 84.5 points. Lebanon won the tournament with 206.5 points.
”We brought nine wrestlers to this tournament,” WHS coach Kelly Tolliver said. “We were very happy with the team’s performance. We continue to improve on our feet each week and have concentrated on our takedowns.”
Top finishers were Thane McCoy for Wilmington, second at 132, and Massie’s Grant Moorman, second at 126, and Colton Doyle, second at 195. Wilmington had a third-place finish by Carson Hibbs at 126 and Thad Stuckey at 160.
