The meet was supposed to be a tri meet, but St. James had to back out due to injuries. So with senior night and history on the line the Indian wrestlers and senior Davy Mundey were ready for the action on the mat.

Before the match started the BSHS athletic department recognized seniors Zach Davis, Mundey, Tanner Clark and CJ Ryan.

When the match started the visitors from Washington County, Md. jumped out to a 6-0 lead after the 195 match as Smithsburg’s Chris Miller pinned the Indians Tanner Voyles. The Tribe bounced back when Clark wasted no time pinning the Smithsburg 220 in 1:33. The Tribe and Smithsburg swapped forfeits at 285, 106 and 113 and the Leopards took a 18-12 lead.

The Indians climbed back in with a forfeit at 126 and then Brandon Shaw picked up an injury default at 132 and the Tribe held a 24-21 lead.

Ethan Zimmerman then used a fast takedown and eventually a pin to claim the 138 win. Then Davis earned his 182 career win when he picked up a major decision at 145 lbs.

Up next was the 152 lb. weight class and what everyone in attendance was waiting on. Smithsburg had weighed in a wrestler at the 152 spot, but when Mundey stepped on the mat the Leopards decided to forfeit to the Tribe grappler. However, despite the disappointment of not picking career win 218 with a match the Indians senior was able to break former Berkeley Springs High School standout and three time state champion Tory Bennett’s WV and school all time win record with 218 career wins.

From there the Indians picked up a pin from Payton Thompson at 170 lbs. and then Ryan picked up a forfeit win to give the Indians the 49-26 win.
