After waiting 38 years for its first Little Kanawha Conference title, the CHS wrestling team won its seventh championship in eight years on Saturday at Williamstown.

The Red Devils placed 12 wrestlers in the top three of their respective weight classes, while outscoring second place Williamstown by 37 points, 230 to 193.

It was the most points scored in at least 13 years, and topped the previous CHS high of 208 points in 2005.

Calhoun wrestlers won four of six championship matches and six of seven consolation finals. The 14 starters lost only 12 matches, while winning 37, 22 of those by pin.

Championship efforts came from Cody Clark (130 lbs.), Sean Gungle (135), Ben Laughlin (145) and Aaron Yoak (160). In second were Austin Moore (125) and Caden Arnold (171).

Earning third place were Nick Stevens (112), Zach Hanshaw (119), Harley Hamrick (140), Jeremy Conley (152), Tim Sutro (189) and Jacob Haught (215). Jean Blair (103) was fourth and Christian Cottrell (285) finished 1-2.

Ben Laughlin remains undefeated (25-0), while Cody Clark continues to lead the team in wins (28) and points scored (204). He and Tim Sutro are tied with 20 pins each.

Calhoun was scheduled to wrestle duals at Herbert Hoover on Thursday at 6 p.m., but the matches were moved up one day. The number of teams was unknown at presstime.

The Red Devils will participate in the regional qualifying tournament next week at Pt. Pleasant High School.
