BELMONT - Call them the super six.
Mike Pahl-coached Warren had only a half dozen grapplers compete at the Rick Link Union Local Invitational, and all of them contributed to the team's third place overall finish. That's third place in a field of 14 schools. The Warriors won 26 of 30 matches.
Of those six Warrior wrestlers, four captured championships.

Warren’s Chris Massey, above, is about to record one of his four falls at Saturday’s Rick Link Union Local Wrestling Invitational. Massey went 5-0 at the meet to win the tournament’s 220-pound weight division.
Levi Congleton was first in the 120-pound weight class with a 5-0 mark.
Casey Parsons was first in the 145-pound weight division with a 5-0 mark.
Chris Massey was the top grappler in the 220 pound weight category with a 5-0 mark. Of those five victories, four were pins.
This was Massey's first tournament championship, Mike Pahl said.
Brandon Pahl also was undefeated in the 285-pound weight class.
Kenny White was runner-up at 182, and Austin Klintworth was 2-3 at 152. Klintworth was a little under the weather when he competed.
Warren is scheduled to host its home wrestling opener, the Hickory Grove Market Invitational, this Saturday at 9:30 p.m.
