Max lost a close decision to him at last week’s Sectional semifinal. Weaver again came out on top by a 6-5 decision. Max then moved to the consolation semifinal where he pinned his opponent to earn a guaranteed top 4 finish and a spot in the State Tournament. Max ended his tournament with another win to place 3rd for the second week in a row.
