West recorded four pins by Cody Grunenwald, River Judd, Travis Hettinga, and Bee Lor. Colin Baine had a win by technical fall as well for the Warriors, who are 6-0 in the WVC heading into Saturday’s WVC tourney in Wisconsin Rapids. Merrill fell to 5-1 in the Valley with the loss. The losses by pin hurt the Blue Jays, as each squad won seven matches on the night.
