With five matches and five members of the wrestling team to show their skills, they look good for the 2008-2009 season.
On Saturday November 29, the wrestling team had five matches in one meet; competing against Loudon County, Warren County, Woodbridge, George Marshall, and Briar Woods high schools. “The team was pathetic, but it was only our first meet against double A and triple A schools,” David Ray stated after the meet.
Though the team was “pathetic” there were five members of the team who did exceptionally well. Senior David Ray walked out 5-0 with 3 pins and a tech fall (which is where you win by 15 points or more). Senior Jake Schwind was 4-1; though his one loss was very close, he also had three pins. Also senior Tim Hillegass was 3-2 losing only by two points for both matches; he also had two pins. Along with the very experienced wrestlers on the team, a first time wrestler senior Benson Ting got a pin along with freshman Alborz Alaedini.
The outlook for wrestling this year looks good. Even though the competition is tough, the boys are working hard in order to beat the double A and triple A schools such as the ones they wrestled on Saturday. “Though we are only a single A school, we wrestle double A and triple A, because competition is tougher and it makes us better,” Coach Bryan Harris said in response to the meet. The team is starting out strong with young wrestlers and veteran wrestlers both competing well.
