ST. CHARLES – The St. Charles East wrestling team crushed rival St. Charles North on Wednesday, winning the Upstate Eight Conference River Division dual meet, 70-3.

There were no North forfeits – just an old-fashioned butt-kicking in the Saints’ favor.

“It really just matched up really well for us,” first-year East coach Jason Potter said. “Their best kids were against our top guys, and we went out there and handled them and wrestled up to our capabilities.”

Potter said sophomore Will Leite prevailed at heavyweight despite giving up about 60 pounds to his opponent. The Saints’ D.J. McDermott won a 2-1 decision at 120 pounds in his first varsity match.

North’s points came courtesy of Wes Pasholk, who won a hotly contested, 1-0 decision at 220 pounds against East’s Peter Banks.

Geneva 57, Wheaton Warrenville South 11: At Geneva, the Vikings won the four lightest classes and the seven heaviest classes to dominate Wheaton Warrenville South in a nonconference dual meet. Geneva’s Jake Boser won a 6-4 decision at 220 pounds and Jake Andersen won by fall at 285.
