The Halifax County High School wrestling team had a successful Senior night Tuesday. Comet assistant David Riddle said the HCHS grapplers had a dual meet against Randolph-Henry and a partial Franklin County squad. This did not include the frontline FCHS performers.

“It was a good tune-up for us as far as the (Western Valley) district (meet) is concerned. We have that coming up on Saturday. Got some mat time,” said Riddle.

“We were pleased with the result. The guys came out, it was Senior Night. Everybody came out to wrestle and it showed in the results. We were able to pick up two wins.

“Those two wins took us to 15-13 on the season. Anytime you can come out with a winning record on the season, that’s certainly something to be pleased with, especially with the amount of new wrestlers that we had this season,” said Riddle.

“We looked at this as a tune-up for the districts. We have high hopes going into districts,” said Riddle.

Riddle said the Comets hope to have “quite a few wrestlers in the finals, and working on getting good seeds for the regional meet.”
