MOUNT VERNON — Ashton Spurgeon continues to add to his school record.

The Mount Vernon senior scored his 101st pinfall in Thursday’s Ohio Cardinal Conference dual meet against Ashland, held at Pleasant Street Elementary.

Unfortunately for the Yellow Jackets, Spurgeon’s victory was one of the few highlights Thursday, as Mount Vernon lost to Ashland, 59-12.

Both Mount Vernon and Ashland had been unbeaten in conference duals going into Thursday. The Arrows are the defending conference champions, and looked every bit of it at Pleasant Street.
