YORKVILLE – Marmion blazed through Saturday's wrestling quad at Yorkville, scoring sizable victories against the host Foxes (46-18), Plano (48-18) and Joliet West (56-12).

The result of the day came in the middle stages of the event, when Marmion 160-pounder Trace Carello defeated Plano's Wes Brown, 2-1, in double overtime. Brown placed fourth at the Class 1A state tournament last season.
