Comet wrestlers split WVD preview meet

SoVaNow.com / January 28, 2013
The Halifax County High School wrestling team split its four matches in Wednesday’s Western Valley District preview meet. The Comets defeated William Fleming, and George Washington High schools, but lost to Patrick Henry and Franklin County.

“We were glad to pick up a win over GW this time. We beat them by one point, but could have done better.

“We opened with Flemming, and didn’t wrestle our best match, but we benefitted from some forfeits to still pick up the win.

“I felt like we wrestled better against PH this time out, but we still lost by the same score as last time.

“Franklin County is still the top team in the district and one of the better teams in the state, we wrestled them better than last time, but we still have a lot of work to do to catch them,” coach Brady Taylor said.

“The Wednesday match was about seeding for the District Tournament this week, and I think we helped ourselves in a lot of weight classes. We have a lot of individual goals for Districts that we will work to accomplish. If we’re successful at that, the team standings should improve as well,” said Taylor.

SENIOR NIGHT: HCHS will recognize its seniors Tuesday. The Comets wrestle Randolph Henry and Franklin County starting at 6:30. “We added Franklin County to the meet because Randolph Henry has a very limited number of wrestlers, and wanted to finish the regular season with a full match,” said Taylor.
