MASSENA - The Massena Central wrestling team made quick work of Clifton-Fine on a night when senior middle weight Isaiah Perry reached an impressive personal milestone in the NAC regular season finale for both squads on Wednesday.
The Raiders claimed forfeit wins in eight of the 15 weight divisions en route to posting an 80-6 decision over the Eagles. They also scored four pins with Perry finishing off Andrew Hartmann in 1:06 at 145 pounds for the 150th victory of his varsity career at Massena.
As far as we know thats by far the most for any wrestler here, noted coach Scott Perrine. Hes been wrestling varsity since he was an eighth-grader so that works out to around 30 wins a year which is pretty impressive for any wrestler from our section.

Hunter Perrine earned a tech fall in 2:54 over Lindsey Johnson at 160 pounds while he only bout to go the distance saw Dan Elman outscore Nathan Aldrich 7—2 for the Raider win at 152 pounds.
