Dragon wrestlers edge St. Marys

ST. MARYS, Pa. – Warren wrestling traveled to St. Marys on Monday in its road finale and came away with a hard-fought 35-30 victory.

The Dragons got a pin from Billy Anderson at 285 and a 3-0 decision from John Fankhouser at 152.

Ryan Madigan also won a 4-3 decision in a showdown with St. Marys’ Marco Paropacic at 126.

“We are always happy with a win. We lost a few matches that we felt we could have won and we were fortunate to have nearly a full lineup and several spare parts,” said Warren coach Dean Johnson. “John Fankhouser and Ryan Madigan both beat guys that they had lost to earlier this month and Billy Anderson had a big pin for us. We are trending in the right direction and still have a few things to work on. We will get another opportunity to get better on Thursday when a tough Brookville team comes to town for our last match of the season.”

Brookville is coming off a fourth place finish in the state in the Class 2A team duals.
