Varsity Wrestling: State Individuals Runner-Up

This past weekend, the Mount Pisgah Varsity Wrestling Team finished off their season with another impressive showing at the Individual State Tournaments in Macon. Eight wrestlers competed in the tournament and seven placed in the Top 5.

Fifth Place: Christian Lange
Third Place: Steele Brown
Runner-Up: Pierre Nelson & Tyler Prinzo
State Champions: Conner Doherty (x2), Josh Lange & Marley Washington (x2)

Each wrestler competed fiercely and their spirited performances led to the team finishing State Runner-Up. 

Coach Merry had this to say about the team. “Overall, I felt we had a great season and performance in this tournament. A lot of teams and polls had us down because of the number of seniors we graduated last season, but our kids worked hard all year long to earn the respect of others and achieve their individual goals. Having five wrestlers in the Individual State Finals is very uncommon, and I was super excited for our young team. Unfortunately, a few wrestlers came short of their individual goals, but luckily, our two seniors who qualified finished on top! We are excited for next year as everyone else is returning to try and achieve their ultimate goal of winning a state title.”
