“As a freshman I am very proud of myself that I am able to compete at the varsity level,” Gassaway said. “I am very excited to wrestle in the the regional meet. We are a very a strong team and I am sure we will do well at regionals.”

Senior Ricky Smith placed 1st in the 120 pound weight class and senior Zeke Garcia also placed 1st in the 220 pound weight class. Smith, Garcia, senior Gabe Warren, sophomore Lance Reed, sophomore Conrad Russell, and freshman Devin Gassaway all qualified for regionals.
