The Wrestling team opened the 2018-2019 season with a busy week of wrestling. First, the wrestling team traveled to Mid-Carolina for a tri-match with the Rebels and 4A opponent Brookland-Cayce. The wrestling team gave up 18 points to each team by way of forfeits and that proved to be a hurdle too big to overcome as we lost to Brookland-Cayce by a final score of 36-42 and lost to Mid-Carolina by a final score of 24-45.
The wrestling team finished out the week traveling to Woodmont High School to compete in their two-day individual tournament on both Friday and Saturday. The Wildcat Invitational consisted of 21 teams which were all 3A and larger except for Whitmire, Christ Church, and St. Joseph’s. Garrett Davis had the best finish for our team as he wrestled for the championship in the 138 lb. weight class. Garrett finished second after losing by points to his opponent from Boiling Springs High School. Other notable finishes were Nick Avila taking 6th at 170 lbs, Dawson Davis taking 7th at 120 lbs, and Christian McLaren taking 8th at 145 lbs.
The wrestling team will look to earn their first team win Tuesday night as they take on Southside High School and Landrum High School in their home opener. Wrestling is set to begin at 6pm. Come out and support your Wolverines!!!
