HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I hope that everyone has the “Attitude of Gratitude” during this holiday weekend with his or her family and friends. I know that the Greenbrier East Wrestling Coaches are Very Thankful for the opportunity to work for Greenbrier East High School and Principal Jeff Bryant. We are also very blessed to spend time and help develop a culture of success for our Wrestlers on and off the mat. Sometimes, when you want to be part of a successful program, you have to create it yourself. Well, let me tell you, with this group of student-athletes, we will continue to build on that success! A Big Thank You goes out to the community, friends and fans for all your support and kindness. Now let’s talk Wrestling!
TRIVIA: Name the only Greenbrier East Wrestler ever to win a Regional Wrestling Championship as a sophomore.
Upcoming events and highlights
This year 5 returning State Qualifiers will lead the Spartans. Senior Jasiel Kinder is a 3x Qualifier and 2x Place-winner. Junior Logan Evans (2x State Qualifier), Junior Ethan Asbury and Sophomore Jacob Hefner(Regional Finalist) all won matches at the State Tournament last year. Sophomore Levi Hobbs also has State Tournament experience. Other Returning Regional Place-winners were Senior Sheldon Simmons (5th place and State alternate), and Sophomores Cameron Zobrist (6th) and Jacob Thomas (6th). Sophomores Thomas Bostic and Aaron Davis also were starters on our 3rd Place Regional team. Add that all up and we have 10 Wrestlers returning with Regional experience. Now you can see why our Wrestlers and coaches’ feel like this team will be special.
A Big Thank You goes to all the Wrestling Alumni who have stopped by the Wrestling room over the holiday break. We had 9 show up in one day alone. That’s what I call unending loyalty. It means a lot to our Wrestlers and Coaches. Wrestling builds a special bond.
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 and team.
E.G.M.S. UPDATE: The middle school will open up their season on Dec. 5. They will compete in the ‘Wayne Bennett’ Duals Tournament at Woodrow Wilson High School. They have been working tremendously hard. I am very excited for them.
