Warren crowns 4 wrestling champs at Union Local meet

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.

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.
