Marshall finished with a 4-1 record, losing only to the 5-0 Rosewood, N.C. team. The Statesmen won by a convincing manner in its four victories, one by a 63-15 score and another 57-17.
Ben Levy at 120 pounds and heavyweight Soren Pirhoun had 5-0 records for Marshall.
Finishing 4-1 were Santiago Lecky (152), Owen Lebkisher (17)) and Arvand Ansari (182).
Others winning matches were Nakita Li (106), Josh Levy (113), Luis Malave (126), Daniel Miller (132), Ryan Mazhari (138), Caleb Hernandez (145), Faisal Attai (160), Ashton Gillespie (195) and Ethan Lebkiser (220).
