Immaculata also walked away with two individual champions from Ridge competition
Pleasant Ridge wrestling coach Darren Weber felt his squad got off to a bit of slow start this season, but the Rams turned it on Saturday to win their own Pleasant Ridge Dual Tournament over five other teams.
The Rams won all five duals to take first place with Jefferson West taking second. Immaculata also competed and went 1-4 for fifth place.
The Rams were led by a team effort with six wrestlers taking top honors in their weight class and two others taking second.
“We were kind of disappointed with how we had done with a couple of the prior matches, but this was a real nice recovery,” Weber said of the Rams. “This will give us some momentum heading into the holidays.”
The Rams had champions at 113 with Tony Weber, 126 Hunter James, 132 Blake Graham, 170 Jerad Johnson, 182 Logan McKinney and 195 with Aaron Brown.
“I was real pleased with Logan and Hunter,” Weber said. “They both sacrificed and moved down to a lower weight and came home with championships.”
Clayton Gum at 106 and Ethan Prayeur at 152 were both second for the Rams.
Immaculata was led by champions Max Campbell at 145 and Bruce Stanley at 152. Campbell remains undefeated on the season. Paul Gilbert also took second at 120 and Cory Holcomb third at 138.
“I’m pleased with how the team is coming along,” Imac head coach Bobby Hancock said. “I would like to see some of our younger guys learn how to win those close matches. We will work on some things over the next couple of weeks and try to get over the hump.”
