Eagle, Bearcat wrestlers head to individuals tournament

By CT McDonald

This week’s Class 4A Individuals State Wrestling Tournament at the Anderson Civic Center will be crowded with local wrestlers from Airport and Brookland-Cayce High Schools.

In last week’s individuals qualifying round at Bluffton High School, Airport placed 10 wrestlers in the top-four out of a total 14 weight classes, and Brookland-Cayce added another to put 11 local top level contenders in the state individuals competition.

According to results from last weekend’s individuals qualifying round reported at scmat.com, it was:

106 lb. Holden Williams No. 2; Airport HS

113 lb. Carbin Nelson No. 2; Airport HS

120 lb. Scott Plantz No. 3; Airport HS

126 lb. Gavin Epps No. 3; Airport HS

132 lb. Alfonso Chavero No. 2; Airport HS

138 lb. Jackson Aaron No. 2; Airport HS

145 lb. Gavin Carrion No. 2; Airport HS

152 lb. Bryson Platt No. 3; Airport HS

160 lb. Jonah Del Priore No. 2; Brookland-Cayce HS

160 lb. Weston Campbell No. 4; Airport HS

285 lb. Jacob McNamar No. 4; Airport HS

These wrestlers are to compete in the Friday – Saturday Individuals State competition at the Anderson Civic Center, but it is not the Top-8 Individuals rankings reported recently at scmat.com. That rankings list includes additional wrestlers from Brookland-Cayce and Airport High Schools, and that will be covered in a future edition of this publication.

Friday’s tournament action begins at 10 am with 3A weigh-ins, with the 4A weigh-ins last at 2:30 pm. Quarterfinal competition follows each weigh-in session, with 4A wrestlers starting on the mats last at 3:30 pm.

Semifinals start at 6:30 pm for all classes, and then the activity picks up again at 8 am Saturday with weigh-ins for all classes followed by wrestling at 9 am – also all classes. And then the individuals championship round is set for 4:30 pm for all classes, each class on its own separate mats.
