Byron-Bergen Central grapplers took the team title and Pembroke Central’s Jim Schuster grabbed off the outstanding wrestler honors Saturday in the Genesee Region Wrestling tournament for class B schools.
Fans packed the Pembroke Central School gym for the all-day event which saw Byron-Bergen place nine men in the final bouts and come away with four individual champions in the 13-class affair.
Coach Jerry Nesbitt’s Bees piled up 87 points to gain the team title. Lyndonville was second with 74 points and Pembroke third at 61, followed by Pavilion 51, Barker 40, Alexander 30, Holley 25, Kendall 8, and the State School for the Blind 2.
Schuster, Pembroke’s heavyweight sensation who finished fourth in the state last year, was named the outstanding wrestler after his victory over B-B’s Larry Albone earned him the heavyweight title. He pinned his opponent at the 2:59 mark.
Tournament winners will move on to meet the No. 2 wrestlers in the Livingston County League Friday at Caledonia. The runners-up will face the first place finishers in the Livingston circuit.
