The third and final match of the day pitted WH vs Pathfinder.  After starting the meet down 18-0 the Panthers won 7 of the remaining 8 bouts to win number 499 of the team history finishing with a score of 42-33.  Standouts for the Panthers were the following. At 113 pounds, senior co-captain Jake Filicicchia won all three of his matches by pinfall.  Senior Alex O'Roak our 182 pound senior also finished the day at 3 wins by pin in a total of 3:31.  Alex was on fire today.
