EAST BREWTON, AL — Milton and Pace both competed in the same four-team roundrobin venue on Saturday at the Murder Creek Melee, hosted by W S Neal HS.
The Pace group held off Gulf Shores, 137.5-136, for the venue victory, while Milton was fourth, with 86 points.
The tournament was staged — per Trackwrestling — at three different venues, likely to create better opportunities for social distancing.
Pace had 11 wrestlers with better than .500 records, taking first in six of the 10 weight classes contested. Milton had five wrestlers over the .500 mark and one champion.
