MT. VERNON – The Darton State College Cavaliers beat Brewton Parker College 26-16 in a dual meet, Wednesday.
Darton went into the meet without two of the program’s starters due to injury and weight issues and therefore forfeited a weight class, which gave Brewton Parker 6 points.
The forfeit would be one of only four wins for the Barons.
Darton freshman Jamel Sharp, wrestling up a weight class at 133, earned a quick six points for the Cavs by pinning Will Hale in 1:30. Howard Earl, a Darton freshman who at 141 was also wrestling up a weight class, also pinned his opponent.
“We were shorthanded and had to forfeit a weight class and bump some of our smaller guys up a weight,” said Darton head coach James Hicks. “But we didn’t want to make excuses. Our guys stepped up and got the job done.”
Darton’s Braxton Owens (149 lbs.) and Harrison Stadnick (197 lbs.) won by major decisions, 14-3 and 9-0, respectively. Heavyweight Henry Floyd and 174-pounder Emory Searles won by decisions of 3-1 and 5-2, respectively.
The Cavaliers will not travel to the Newberry Duals on Saturday, as previously scheduled. Instead they will compete again on Jan. 5, at the Campbellsville Duals in Kentucky.
