The Pirate wrestling team hosted the annual Mid?Southern Conference Duals meet on Saturday, December 12 in Dunn Arena.
The Pirate wrestlers kept their Mid?Southern Conference winning streak alive with four more wins, despite several battles with injuries. The Pirates extended their consecutive MSC winning streak to 40 matches, a streak dating back to December of 2003.
In the opener of the MSC Duals, the Pirates pounded Salem 72?3 and then followed that up with a 72?6 whipping of Eastern.
In round three, the Pirates fell behind Corydon 16?10 early, before momentum shifted and the Pirates cruised to a 66?16 victory.
In the final MSC bout of the day, competition got a little exciting against the Scottsburg Warrior. In a
"great, back?and?forth dual" the Pirates escaped with a 47?36 win over the talented Warriors.
Pirates finishing the day undefeated were sophomore David Enteman and senior Mark Daugherty.
Congratulations to Pirate wrestling for acquiring their sixth consecutive MSC Duals title!
The Pirates have won four consecutive Mid?Southern Conference titles, six out of the last seven years and are posed to capture their seventh title this decade.
The Pirates are back in action today when they travel to Eastern (Pekin) for more MSC competition. For more information about Pirate Wrestling, log on to www.CharlestownPiratePride.com/Wrestling.htm.
