The 2017-2018 edition of Tribe wrestling kicked off their wrestling season with a very strong performance at the Hedgesville Duals. The dual tournament pulls teams together for a grueling two day event where wrestlers get in 10 matches against some of the best wrestling competition around.

Coach Dave Mundey and his squad faced off with what many call the #1 team in Class AA the East Fairmont Bees in the very first match of the day and then through the course of the tournament faced many AAA teams from Virginia and West Virginia.

The Tribe lost the opener to East Fairmont 55-18. From there the Indians bounced back in a big way reeling off four straight wins to end Friday with a 4-1 record.

The Indians started their run with an impressive win over North Marion. The Huskies are a perennial Class AA top 10 program and the Indians sent some shock waves in West Virginia wrestling with a 43-28 win over North Marion.
