The Charleroi wrestling team remained winless in Class AA, Section 2B with Wednesday's 42-18 loss to visiting Mt. Pleasant.

With both teams shorthanded, the dual meet featured just four matches as Mt. Pleasant (2-7) was awarded five forfeits. Charleroi (0-2) received two forfeit victories.

Highlighting the evening was a dual between senior 145-pound standouts: a 5-2 victory by Charleroi's Nick Gavazzi over Austin Mears.

Also for the Cougars, Tanner Large won a 4-0 decision over Jeremy Lawrence in the 120-pound match.
