Comments: The 2nd Annual Moundsville Invitational was held at the John Marshall Fieldhouse in Moundsville. Buckeye Local 9th cancelled at the last moment, but there were still 8 teams present.

Sherrard got ahead in the semi-finals by putting 8 in the finals to Cameron's 6. Although Cameron closed to within 3 points after the quick wind-up of the 116 finals, Sherrard held on to win 181-172. This reversed the finish of the top two teams in the Cameron Tournament at the beginning of the season. Both teams had a few flu victims and were missing a couple wrestlers.

Hard wrestling was the order of the day: Cameron had 4 champions, Moundsville and Sherrard 3 each, Bridge Street 2, Union and Harpers Ferry 1 each.

Not only was there an intense battle for 1st, Harpers Ferry and Moundsville waged their own private battle for 3rd place. Moundsville took the lead after a Chris Taylor pin in the 145 finals, but Harpers Ferry matched it with a Ryan Fierro fall at 155. When the smoke cleared, the two were tied at 138. The tournament was directed by Larry Chambers, long-time Moundsville JHS coach. Wrestling commenced at 10:30 and was finished by 4:30.
