Area teams turn in strong performances over weekend

Reigning Class AA/A state champion Greenbrier West won a tournament at Ripley on Saturday, going undefeated.

The Cavaliers defeated Ravenswood 63-0, Bridgeport 63-6 and Class AAA co-No. 8 Ripley 50-19. Malik Boatwright, the defending 152-pound state champion, lost a tight 4-3 decision to Ripley’s Jake Martin, last year’s Class AAA 138-pound champ.

Greenbrier West will take part in the Lumberjack Classic in Summersville on Friday and Saturday. The Cavs are the tournament’s defending champs.

In Class AAA, Shady Spring was 4-3 overall and finished third in the second flight of the West Virginia Duals in Parkersburg. The Tigers defeated, among others, Woodrow Wilson (45-21) and Class AA/A No. 6 Roane County (42-39).

Woodrow was also 4-3 and was first in the fourth flight, one spot ahead of 3-4 Oak Hill. After struggling in pool play, the Flying Eagles went unbeaten on day two.

Shady will compete in Summersville this weekend. Woodrow will travel to Greenbrier East for a dual at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

Greenbrier East finished second at a tournament in Alleghany, Va. The Spartans defeated Virginia schools Salem, Spotswood, Pulaski County and William Byrd before falling to host Alleghany in the finals.

East had five individual champions: Jasiel Kinder (113, 5-0), Keegan Mickey (170, 4-0), Josiah Solak (170, 3-0), Charles Withrow (182, 5-0) and Levi Nelson (220, 5-0).

Wrestlers who were 4-1 were Logan Evans (120) and Adam Zimmerman (152), while Michael Villars (145), Sheldon Simmons (160) and Evan Roberts (285) were all 3-2. Also, Joe Sampson was 2-2 at 195 and Paul Flowers won his only match at 220.
