Wrestlers respectable in regionals
SoVaNow.com / February 13, 2013The Halifax County High School wrestling team did not qualify any wrestlers for this year’s Group AAA state tournament, but the Comets had a respectable showing in the Northwest Regionals last weekend.
HCHS had four of eight wrestlers advance to Saturday’s action. Zack Carlson (113), Gannon Griffin (145), Tommie Hairston (170), and Ezra Walker (220) all won a match in the first round of consolations Friday night to make it to Saturday. All were eliminated in the opening round Saturday.
“Going into the tournament, we thought we had some good chances at picking up a few wins, and maybe qualifying a few people for States. Unfortunately, after the four hour drive we came out a little flat and nervous and didn’t pick up a win in the first round. For some of the younger guys being their first region tournament nerves may have played a role. For the seniors, it’s tough to take. All three of them had good opportunities to win more matches,” coach Brady Taylor said.
“At least we have five guys that will get the chance to go back next year, and it will be into a new region without some of the bigger schools.
“It’s been a long season, but overall a good one. I’m proud of the team we put on the mat, and I know these guys will be more successful in anything they attempt because of the efforts they put in this year,” Taylor said.
