James Barrett (171 pounds) pinned three opponents after beginning the day with a tough, 3-2 loss to Pasquotank's Alex Smith.

Eastern Wayne (3-8) also received individual victories from first-year grapplers Jasmine Doubt, Megan Lafave, Austin Helm, Byron Washington, Eric Lemmon and heavyweight Calvin Christian.
