SHERRARD CLASSIC DUALS

Date: Dec 18--19.1998

Location: SHERRARD JHS

Moundsville JHS followed up on last week's BNI SuperDuals victory by winning the SHERRARD CLASSIC DUALS. Moundsville posted a 10-0 dual meet record. Moundsville defeated runner-up Sherrard JHS(9-1) 41-33 in their individual match-up.

The Trojans match with defending champ, Independence, was a tense, gritty affair. With the Trojans leading 36-34, and Moundsville's heavyweight ahead 3-1, Keaton of Independence came on strong, pushing for the win and knotting the match at 5-5 in the last period. Action on the other mats came to a stop to watch the intense finish of this match. Keaton made a mistake, pushing for the takedown in the last 15 seconds and was pinned by Moundsville's Jon Wells: Moundsville won 42-34 in a great Jr. High match. Coach Larry Chambers had Champions in Jason Koontz (90), Derek George (135), Chris Taylor (155) and Jon Wells (Hvy).

In the last match of the day, Sherrard and Independence dualed for the runner-up trophy. The Rams squeaked by 42-39 over a strong Patriots' squad. Ram Champions were Zeke Teets (116) and Kurt Jones (123).

Independence has proven over the last 2 weeks that they are going to follow up last season's super results with ANOTHER strong winter. Brian Snuffer (75), Steve Sexton (co-champ at 110), Ben Wood (128), Harry Rhodes (155) and Aaron Barnette (165) led Independence as Sherrard Classic Champs.

Harpers Ferry had some bad injury luck, but finished in the elite wtih a 7-3 dual record. The Tigers will definitely be heard from throughout this season. Steve Reynods (83) and Huber (95) were champs for HF.

Ripley Middle won the Top Middle School award with a 5-4-1 record.
