POMEROY - Six Pomeroy wrestlers posted pins here Tuesday night and a seventh won by decision in the Pirates' tuneup before hosting their Christmas Tournament today.
Clayton King at 106 pounds, Kyle Hyer at 132, Nick Tewalt at 152, Tory Knebel at 170 and Mike Wymore at 220 were the Pirates' winners by fall. Wyatt Hyer at 138 pounds won his match by a 11-5 decision.
