Wrestling season has begun! It’s an exciting time for all the Greenbrier East Wrestlers, Coaches and community.
It’s Fun coming off a Record-Breaking season and a Regional Championship. However, along with success comes responsibility. Our wrestlers understand that Championships are not given; they are earned. And it’s their responsibility to work hard and continue to represent Greenbrier County with Pride and Class. Please follow along this wrestling season as we create opportunities for greatness for our wrestlers. We are READY!
TRIVIA: What is the Motto for this year’s Greenbrier East Wrestling Team?
Upcoming events and highlights:
CONGRATULATIONS to Greenbrier East’s 1st Team All-State Girls Soccer Players, Mallory Alderson, Carley Midkiff and Kate Perkins. I an McManamay was 1st Team All-State for the boys. They are truly winners on and off the field. Also, Congrats to Karlei Shaver for her 1st Team All-State honors in Volleyball. Bottom line – She is a Great person!
We have 9 Wrestlers who qualified for the State Championships last year. They will return as our leaders this year. I will start to introduce them and the whole Greenbrier East Wrestling team as I give a more in-depth analysis of our season in the next few articles.
Our first HOME Wrestling meet (The Greenbrier Duals) will be on Saturday, Dec. 16 starting at 11 a.m. Please come out and show support for our team. Our Varsity “Green” team will wrestle at the “Raider Rumble” at Liberty Raleigh this Saturday. Wrestling begins at 9:30 a.m.
E.G.M.S. UPDATE: Wow! What a Great bunch of middle school Wrestlers. I do not think there is a better coaching staff for a Middle school program in the whole state of West Virginia. Head Coach Joe Heath is a 2x State Champion and All-American. Coach Rodney Fisher is a Veterans Olympic Style World Champion. Contact Coach Heath at 1-304-641-8364 if you want to be part of a successful program with an even brighter future.
Eastern Greenbrier Wrestling Club is also accepting memberships for anyone interested in wrestling (age 4-12). Contact Coach Carl Godby at 1-304-667-4615.
See Coach Miluk or one of our current Wrestlers about our “Adopt a Wrestler” program. It’s a Great way to support our team and follow the success of our Wrestlers.

MILUK HUMOR: People often ask me … How do you stay married so long with all your activities and being so busy all the time? I tell them that we go out to dinner twice a week … I go on Tuesdays and she goes on Thursdays. (Ha)
TRIVIA ANSWER: The Greenbrier East Wrestling Team’s Motto will be “Just1More!” Last season we had 8 Wrestlers who were just one win from being a State Place-Winner (Top 6 in the State). This season we WIN those matches.
