STAFFORD, Va. - Upper Perkiomen's wrestling team boarded the bus Friday morning with snow falling and, despite having no problems arriving for the 9th annual Battlefield Duals, found weathering a storm of competition on the mats was indeed a problem.
The Indians dropped three of their four matches in the grueling two-day event wasn't available at deadline.
After opening with a 43-21 decision of Kellam. Va., Upper Perkiomen dropped its next three -- first to Pennsylvania rival Connellsville, 46-28; then to Virginia state power Colonial Forge, 52-13; and its finale to Huntington, W.Va., 43-23 -- which dropped their overall record to 7-6.
