The Southern Regional High School wrestling team, No. 2 in The Press Elite 11, swept a quad on Saturday with nonconference wins against No. 10 Buena Regional and Williamstown to go along with a Shore Conference win against Raritan.

There were three bouts in Southern's 51-19 win against Buena that featured two wrestlers in The Press' area weight-by-weight rankings.

Three-time District 32, three-time Region 8 champ Billy Ward pinned Southern's Andrew Tonneson in 31 seconds at 126 pounds in a matchup of No.'s 1 and 2, respectively.

No. 9 Millville sweeps
