Salem gets first win in EBC competition this season with a win over Marlington. Salem jumped out to an early lead with back to back pins by seniors Christian Barth and Logan Stecker. After losing some close matches at the heavier weight classes, Salem regained momentum with a pin from sophomore Dylan Newhouse and a hard earned victory by Team Captain Jacob Frost. Marlington returned fire winning three matches in a row bringing the score to within three. Returning from an injury that kept him out of competition for the last three weeks, Team Captain Caiden Hart wrestled the final match of the night and clinched the victory for Salem with a second period pin. Salem will host Jefferson and Hubbard next Wednesday January 15, 2020.
