The Halifax County High School wrestling team dropped a tough match to Person County Thursday night, 60-24.

The Comets are 0-4 in dual meet action, after three losses in Piedmont district action at Franklin County Wednesday.

Comet assistant David Riddle said, “right now, we’re about where we thought we would be.”

Halifax has solid experience at certain weight spots, but the Comets are also working to pick up more wrestling acument at some other positions in the lineup. Riddle noted, moreover, that the Comet grapplers are making what he called ‘mistakes of aggression. Nobody is wrestling lazy,” he added.

Camey Conner, one of the female wrestlers, was pinned at 106 in 1:20 by her Rocket opponent. At 113, Kalaab Anderson also got pinned in 43 seconds. Person got a forfeit at 120.

At 126, Necco Lawrence got pinned in 1:38 by his Rocket opponent. Then, at 132, Krunal Patel lost by pinfall in 52 seconds. At 138, Spencer Conner got pinned in 35 seconds. At 145, Thomas Satterfield of HCHS got pinned in 1:26.

At 152, Antwan Ragsdale also got pinned by his Rocket opponent in 56 seconds. Then, at 160, James Anderson pinned his Rocket opponent in 1:35. Then, HCHS picked up another win as Brian Debow claimed the victory by forfeit at 170.

At 182, Comet grappler Jarrett Messick got pinned in 1:03. At 195, Ezra Walker of the Comets lost by pinfall in 1:13. At 220, Jamal Hubbard got pinned in 12 seconds.

At heavyweight, Jarius Marable, coming over from the football team, got more points for the Comets with a win. He pinned his Rocket opponent. HCHS wrestling has been helped by some of the football players coming over. Riddle also sees a trend for better results once some of the newer grapplers gain more experience.

In earlier district quad wrestling action Wednesday at Franklin County, HCHS fell to the Eagles, 63-18. The Comets also lost a close match to GW, 40-35. Halifax also dropped a tight match to Martinsville. Both teams had 42 points, but the Bulldogs won on a tiebreaker procedure.
