Sharks slam Dolphins for region title
May River wrestling claimed the Region 8-3A title with an impressive 63-6 home win over Battery Creek on Wednesday.
The Sharks racked up five pins and four forfeits to claim their second consecutive region championship.
The night started off well for the Dolphins, as Alex Linares opened the match with a decision and Larson McManigle followed a win by May River’s Pat Treacy with a decision of his own to give Battery Creek a 6-3 lead.
May River’s Wyatt Banfield turned the tide with a first-period pin, and the Sharks’ strong upper weights took control.
Both teams will open the Class 3A dual playoffs on Feb. 8. The Sharks will host the first two rounds that night, while the Dolphins will open on the road.
