The Greenbrier East Wrestlers finished in 10th place out of 28 Teams at the nationally ranked Christiansburg, VA “Big Blue” Tournament. The exciting part was that we had three Wrestlers in the finals. WOW! That is Big-Time. We have never even had one person in the finals before this year. We are very proud of Jasiel Kinder, Josiah Solak and Levi Nelson for placing 2nd. Keegan Mickey also placed 6th to receive an award. Speaking of Awards, at the end of the Tournament the Greenbrier East Wrestling Team was presented a Plaque of Appreciation for Sportsmanship. It was given as a tribute to honor one of the prominent referees in Virginia and the Regional area. It was GREAT to be recognized by all the Teams and referees. It also reassured our belief that we always promote being a great person first then a great Wrestler. This has been a fun season. Thanks to everyone that has helped along the journey.

MILUK HUMOR: With all this cold weather I was wondering. If it’s zero degrees outside today and it’s supposed to be twice as cold tomorrow, how cold is it going to be?
