POINT PLEASANT, W.Va. — There were no special giveaways going on at Senior Night, especially for the guests that showed up.

PPHS claimed five pinfall wins and a technical fall during an 80-0 victory against Spring Valley, then secured another eight pinfall wins during an 81-0 triumph over Buffalo.

Eleven of the 14 Point grapplers scored at least one pinfall victory, with the exceptions being Brayden Connolly (182), Juan Marquez (195) and Jacob Muncy.

Both Connolly and Marquez won via a pair of forfeits against SVHS and BHS, while Muncy earned a 3-1 decision against Buffalo and a forfeit win against SVHS.

Derek Raike (132) and Mitchell Freeman (145) scored a pair of pinfall wins in their respective divisions. Justin Bartee (138) also recorded a pinfall to go along with a 21-6 technical fall against Spring Valley.
