What can you guys tell me about this tournament. I went to high school in NC  wife went in TN. I wrestled at Avery Co in the early 90s and they are going to this tournament. Avery has some really tough kids. A 2 time state champion at 132 River Griffith.A Sophomore Levi Andrews that won it last year as a Fr at 220 A Sophomore that placed 2nd as a Fr at 120 Ethan Shell. At 182 has placed in states Lucas Andrews. They finished 5th at the Holy Angels tournament in Charlotte. The top four team were from Georgia,Georgia,Wisconsin and Georgia at that tournament.

Well my old high school Avery finished 2nd with 205.5 points. Only had 10 kids. 8 out of the 10 placed.Had 4 in the finals.2 won it at 120 and 132. The 132 River Griffith was named most outstanding wrestler for the lower weights. Georgetown Prep was there and they had Kyonte Hamilton who is ranked 3rd in the Country at 220 going to Rutgers and won Beast of the East this year.Hamilton was most outstanding for the upper weights. Cleveland won it with 256 points.

Cleveland left 4 starters at home trying to get a little healthier. The 120 pound kid for you guys was very solid. I hate that ours missed a chance to compete with him.

I noticed your 220 kid Davis wasn’t there. Avery has a kid that won it last year as a Freshman at 106 that out this year with a shoulder. He might of been at 113 this year.For a 1a school they did pretty good.

Yeah that would of been a good match between those two. Cleveland should look into going to the Holy Angels tournament next year in Charlotte,NC. It’s a really good tournament.Our 120 got beat in the finals there and our 132.

The Head Coach at Appalachian State John Mark Bentley is from Avery. He never lost in high school and won the high school nationals in 1997. Went UNC and transferred to Oklahoma St. in his college career.
