Taking each of the 10 matches from 96 to 152 pounds, the CBA/Jamesville-DeWitt wrestling team had an easy time in Wednesday night's meet against East Syracuse-Minoa, beating the Spartans 60-15.

Though ESM had to forfeit four of those matches to Arsen Bagiryan (103 pounds), Max Havens (112 pounds), J.T. Romagnoli (130 pounds), Ben Honis (135 pounds), the other six were contested.

In just 31 seconds, Aaron Benedict (145 pounds) pinned Frank Kulas, while Mark Fiske (152 pounds) accumulated enough points for a technical fall over Conner Webb.

All of the decisions were close ones. Brad Carr, in an exciting 119-pound match, edged past Jeremy Murphy 14-13, with Dan Meile (140 pounds) beating Stephen Loder 5-3. Matt Lauro (125 pounds) had a 4-2 decision over Kyle Parella as Dylan Letcher, at 96 pounds, toppled Colton Webb 6-2.

Also for CBA/J-D, Paul D'Antonio won his 171-pound match by pinning Rich Osborne midway through the second period, while Corey Plumleg (285 pounds) claimed a forfeit.
