Averett tops Emory & Henry

Donovan Pinnix goes in for the bout-winning takedown.

In the first dual between DIII teams in 2021, Averett bested Emory & Henry 57-0. It was the first match in program history for Emory & Henry and the first home match for the Wasps. Averett won all five contested matches and also took five forfeits to secure the final margin. Returning NCAA qualifier George Moseley turned in the top performance with a 46 second fall.

In addition to the five varsity matches, the teams contested ten exhibition matches, as Emory & Henry only had wrestlers at 165 and above.

Both teams head back to the mats this weekend at the Star City Classic tournament in Roanoke.
