HAPPY BIRTHDAY, CHARLES WITHROW! The Greenbrier East Wrestlers finished in 2nd place at the Alleghany Duals Tournament this past weekend. The Wrestlers beat teams from Spotswood, VA, Salem, VA, Pulaski County, VA and William Byrd, VA before losing the Championship match against Alleghany High School. Individual Tournament Champions were Jasiel Kinder, Josiah Solak, Keegan Mickey, Charles Withrow and Levi Nelson all going undefeated. Other Greenbrier East wrestlers with winnings records were Logan Evans (3-2), Michael Villars (3-2), Adam Zimmerman (4-1), Sheldon Simmons (3-2), Joe Sampson (2-2), Evan Roberts (3-2) and Paul Flowers (1-0). This tournament gave us the opportunity to show off our individual talent. However, as a team we need to fill a few more weight classes. I really, truly, firmly believe that each of these people will be more successful in life because they are part of our Wrestling Program.
TRIVIA: Greenbrier East currently has 7 Wrestlers with 20 or more victories. Can you name them?
