DELHI – Facing a tough field at the Section IV Class B Tournament, the Oxford Blackhawks and the Greene Trojans had a combined total of nine wrestlers place after their finishes this past Saturday, February 3.
Greene’s Noah Kennedy was crowned the 182 pound champion of the tournament after beating Maine-Endwell’s Greg Davis by a full length match being decided by a final of 3-1. Kennedy won his two matches to reach the finals by a 3:02 and 2:59 pin in the quarter and semi-finals.

Also placing for this weekend from the Trojans will be Harrison Stone after a fourth place finish, losing in the 145 consolation finals match to Emmett Wood by a 9-4 decision.
