Weather caused a changed to the Berkeley Springs Indians wrestling schedule this past weekend. Instead of traveling to Beckley and wrestling in the WV Army Guard Duals due to the possible inclement weather. The Indians headed up I-70 East to North Hagerstown High School and the Hub Cup tournament. The Hub Cup was supposed to be a two-day tournament, but the weather caused its event directors to shorten it to a one-day event and it was a straight grinder of an event.

Berkeley Springs finished second in the event with 159 points behind overall champion Middletown (Md.) 209.50. There were 19 teams in total in the one-day event. The Indians were not able to capture any individual championships but had two wrestlers finish in second place. Sophomore Trent Fox (138) and senior Michael Holiday (175) both lost in the finals by tech fall and pin respectively.
