No. 2 Mount Saint Joseph grapples first win since 2009 over No. 1 McDonogh

No. 2 Mount Saint Joseph grapples first win since 2009 over No. 1 McDonogh

Simply put, things couldn't have worked out any better for the Mount Saint Joseph wrestling team Wednesday night.

Facing rival and No. 1-ranked McDonogh in its home gym, the No. 2 Gaels won nine of 14 bouts and had everything fall their way in a commanding 41-24 win. It's the first Mount Saint Joseph win over the Eagles since 2009.

"It really couldn't have gone any better," Gaels coach Harry Barnabae said. "The kids were prepared; they've been preparing for this all year. It's always a battle with McDonogh. Every time we come in here it's a scorcher. Fans are into it, parents and alumni are here. We expected it to be a tough match and it was."
