Tough competition everywhere would await the Marcellus wrestling team as it traveled to Vernon-Verona-Sherrill for Saturday’s Section III Class B championships. But Zach Ruggles was up to it, as his victory in the 120-pound division, combined with a near-victory for Ben Hood at 113 pounds, gave Mustangs fans plenty to smile about, even though it only finished ninth in a 12-team field.
