FEB. 6 -- Over the weekend, the Varsity Wrestling team traveled to Macon to compete in the 1st round of the State championship known as sectionals. The team had only qualified 6, but was able to add another, Josh Noble (9), as an alternate at the last minute. The team wrestled hard and advanced 6 wrestlers to the State Championship this coming weekend.
Leading the team was senior Karlos Nadal who won the sectionals for the 2nd year in a row. Three other wrestlers advanced to the finals, but only Noah Swift (11) was able to avenge a loss against Commerce from the area finals a week ago to take 1st place. Both Cam Johnson (9) and Conner Spence (12) were sectional runner-ups. David Bertrand (9) lost by 1 in the semi-finals, but was able to wrestle back and place 3rd. Catherine Grace Bertrand (9) also wrestled a great tournament and managed to finish 4th.
All 6 wrestlers advance to the Championship Finals starting this Friday morning in Macon.
