Barnesville tops BHV on the mats
The Barnesville Trojans won 10 of 14 weights and scored three victories by forfeit in a 47-21 dual meet victory Dec. 9 over Bertha-Hewitt/Verndale.
Coach Mike Barthels saw Nick Bennett (152), Dillon Card (171), Andy Bounds (189) and Colin Turchin (285) rack up victories for the Raiders.
BHV's Kasey Horn tied up with Barnesville standout Hans Peppel at 130 and took him to three overtimes before losing 2-1.
"It was a great effort on his part and I think that has now sent a message to the section that he is in the hunt to win the section tournament later this year," Barthel said in praising Horn.
