Wrestling Bucs go 6-4 at Clash of the Creek Duals Tournament

TUSCARORA (Md.) – The Buckhannon-Upshur wrestling team went 6-4 in the Clash of the Creek Duals Tournament last week in Tuscarora, Maryland.

The Bucs defeated Woodlawn (60-17), Middletown (48-24), Springbrook (48-36), Tuscarora (Va.) (48-23), Wooten (71-6) and Perrysville (54-24) while falling to Boonsboro (42-36), Tuscarora (Md.) (49-21), Brunswick (48-27) and Norristown (40-37). They finished fourth as a team.

Individually, the Bucs had four wrestlers place in the top three while two wrestlers won championships.

B-U’s Liam Garcia went 10-0 with nine pins winning the 120-pound division and was named the Most Outstanding Wrestling for the tournament.

Jeremy Jett also brought home a title for the Bucs, winning the 113-pound division with a 10-0 mark with six pins.

Oscar Blonn (215 pounds) was a perfect 10-0 but was bumped into the heavyweight division twice to avoid a forfeit win which helped the Bucs defeated two opponents; despite defeating every 215 opponent he did not have more wins than another wrestler and was awarded second due to criteria.

Ian Cornett finished third for the Bucs in the 126-pound division with an 8-2 record with five pins.

Andrew McDowell (138 pounds) finished 8-2, Evan McDowell (157 pounds), recorded a 6-4 mark, Chance Morgan (165 pounds) finished 6-4, Emma McGinnis (190 pounds) went 3-0 and Jeremiah Thompson (175 pounds) rounded out the Bucs with a winning mark with a 7-3 ledger.

The B-U girls went to Williamstown for the Williamstown Tournament on Dec. 30 and Bri Howes claimed a championship in the 114-pound division with a 3-0 record with three pins.

Maya Garcia also took first in the 132-pound division with a 3-0 mark with three pins.

McGinnis went 2-2 to earn third place in the 165-185 division.

The Bucs were slated to face Fairmont Senior and Greenbrier East at home Wednesday evening.
