POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — Not a perfect day, but a pretty good day nonetheless.
The Point Pleasant wrestling team came away with a 2-1 overall team record, but senior Guy Fisher became the 11th grappler in school history to notch 150 career wins Saturday during a home quad match against North Marion, John Marshall and Oak Glen.
The Big Blacks — who are currently ranked fifth in the Class AAA poll — scored a 52-24 victory over Class AA-A fourth-ranked North Marion in the opening round, then secured a 60-21 victory over John Marshall. PPHS, however, suffered a 38-29 setback to AA-A third-ranked Oak Glen in the night cap, ending the day with a 2-1 mark.
Point Pleasant had five grapplers finish the quad match with perfect 3-0 records, including Fisher at 126 pounds — who scored career win No. 150 with a second period pinfall of Josh Rine of John Marshall.
Fisher joins Nick Duncan, James Casto, Anthony Jeffers, Jared Searls Phillip Allen, Caleb Duong, Casey Hogg, Rusty Maness, Josh Hereford and Noah Searls in the legendary 150-win club.
Hunter White (160), Grant Safford (170), Jon Peterson (182) and Tannor Hill (195) also came away from the weekend with unblemished marks in three matches, while Caleb Leslie (106), Austin Rutter (152) and Jacob Duncan (220) each finished with 2-1 records.
Scotty Wilcox (113), Austin Wamsley (120), Zach Stewart (132), Andrew Roach (145) and Alec Stanley (285) also recorded one win apiece at the event. Senior captains John Raike and Josh Hudson did not compete at the quad match while recovering from injuries.
