POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — The Point Pleasant wrestling team came away with top honors Friday and Saturday at the 2012 Jason Eades Memorial Duals held on the campus of Point Pleasant Junior-Senior High School.
The Big Blacks were the only squad of 19 teams to come away with an unbeaten record this weekend, as the hosts posted an overall team record of 7-0 at the two-day event. Wirt County and Clay County both claimed second place with a pair of 6-1 marks.
The event is scored on head-to-head team results, much like a dual, and the winner is determined by the final record of each team.
Point Pleasant defeated St. Albans by 66-15 margin in the opening round, then posted a 54-24 win over Nitro in Round 2. PPHS claimed a 51-24 win over Spring Valley in Round 3, then posted a 56-9 victory over Capital in the Day One finale.
The Big Blacks had a bye in Round 1 on Saturday, then squeaked out a 38-37 win over East Fairmont in Round 2 and a 38-27 win over Writ County in Round 3. PPHS clinched its perfect team record with a 54-21 win over Woodrow Wilson in Round 5.
Wahama also competed at the event and finished the weekend with a 3-3 overall mark. The White Falcons had wins over Capital (42-32), Hurricane (42-35) and Liberty (33-21). Wahama’s losses came to Calhoun County (45-30), East Fairmont (61-10) and Greenbrier West (52-21).
