WAYNESBURG, PA. -- The host Waynesburg Yellow Jackets earned victories in six of the first seven weight classes as they snapped the Builders' five-match win streak with a 29-16 victory on Friday night.
Following a win by pin and a major decision in the first two bouts, senior Will Harcum recorded a pin at 174 pounds to cut the deficit to 10-6. Harcum's win was his 20th in 23 matches this season making him the fastest to 20 wins in the modern era of Apprentice School wrestling.

After giving up a major decision at 141 pounds, sophomore Ricky Anderson earned the final points of the night recording a pin in 45 seconds at 149 pounds for the 29-16 final score. Anderson is currently 6-1 on the year.
The Builders will next see action on December 28 at the Wilkes Open. The next dual match will be on January 8-9 at the 30th annual Virginia Duals.
