<h1>Well, the new <strong>Wrestling<\/strong> season has begun!<\/h1>\r\nIt\u2019s an exciting time for all the Greenbrier East <strong>Wrestlers<\/strong>,Coaches and community. The coaching staff is already VERY impressed with the hard work and effort from all of the <strong>Wrestlers<\/strong>. We had all our early season paperwork and meetings completed. So, it was time to compete! The Wrestlers went to the always tough Point Pleasant Duals Tournament. (We had never finished higher than 3rd place.) We started the tournament off by going 5-0 the first round, beating Sissonville (67-10), #8 Riverside (45-27), George Washington (54-27), Herbert Hoover (58-14) and Nitro (72-7). Along with victories over Musselman (60-14) and Winfield (51-30) on the second day, we had the opportunity to wrestle Point Pleasant for the Championship. It was a GREAT High School <strong>wrestling<\/strong> match. The crowd was crazy! It was loud and there were upsets, pins, throws and even controversy. Point Pleasant won the match 37-36. OUCH! Yes, we lost the match, but it was Fun! We loved the battle! I found out that this team has the Courage to Succeed! And we WILL Succeed! Please read Roosevelt\u2019s \u201cThe Man in the Arena.\u201d We are so proud of this team.\r\n\r\n<strong>TRIVIA:<\/strong> What is the Motto for this year\u2019s Greenbrier East Wrestling Team?\r\n\r\n<strong>Upcoming events and highlights:<\/strong>\r\n\r\nEarlier last month we had the opportunity to take some of our seniors and over 35 people to Virginia Tech.
