The Greenbrier East Wrestling Coaches are very excited about the upcoming wrestling season. Practice begins on Monday. We have tremendous student-athletes who work VERY, VERY hard to improve, succeed and represent Greenbrier East High School with pride and class. Hopefully, we will give you weekly updates on their successes throughout the season. We appreciate your support and loyalty as we prepare for our journey through the season with our final destination in Huntington for the West Virginia State Wrestling Championships. Again, we want to promote the effort and success of our wrestlers and recognize their achievements. We promised our wrestlers that we would give them an opportunity to be great. Last season we had seven different wrestlers within one match of placing at the West Virginia State Championships. This year we are going to win those matches… Yes, we are going to “FINISH STRONG!” (That’s our Motto for this season).
TRIVIA: This year’s Wrestling Team will have eight returning State Qualifiers. (Most ever in school history) Can you name them?
Upcoming events and highlights
Let’s start our first article off with a tribute to the success of the Spartan Football Team and the record-breaking season of Isaiah Kinder. However, it’s wrestling season and “There’s a new Kinder in town.” Jasiel, along with many other Spartan Wrestlers are going to part of a very special Wrestling Team this year. Last season our wrestlers broke many school records and won Championships. This season we have set the bar even higher. Again, I am so happy and excited to be a part of their success stories. I can guarantee you that you will see a team the will win with Class and make everyone in Greenbrier County proud.
As I often tell my student-athletes “You can’t have great memories without great moments!” This season we will create a lot of great memories for years to come!
We will continue to have “Wrestlers of the Week” features and other pertinent information about our program throughout the season. If anyone is ever interested in getting involved with the Greenbrier East Wrestling Team, Please contact me.
Now it’s our job to get out there and make things happen. Please follow us throughout the year and support the effort and success of all our wrestlers.
