SHENANDOAH JUNCTION, W.Va. - The Waynesboro Indians dominated the 24th Jefferson Invitational wrestling tournament, scoring 192 team points, almost 20 points ahead of second place Fairmont Senior.
"It was an outstanding team effort, and I'm proud of them all," coach Dan Ireland said. "We got mileage from unseeded wrestlers going into the finals, from pins and from tech falls. I thought we could do it all along."
Waynesboro had one individual champion, T.J. Zasa (130), who pinned Nick Hedrick of Fairmont Senior, in very quick aggressive fashion. Chris Zasa (119) was runner-up to Jay Golden of Parkersburg (W.Va.), last year's state champion at 119. Shawn Marvich (125), Craig Hight (135), Josh Price (152) and Adam Walizer (171) also took seconds for Waynesboro. Price defeated defending West Virginia state champion John Jackson of Jefferson in the semifinals, 18-4. Waynesboro's Russian exchange student, Denise Alampiyev (160), took third.
