Boys Varsity Wrestling · Blazers qualify 7 for the Individual Upper State Tournament


  Place Points
Ridge View High School 5th 0

Saturday the wrestling team competed in the Region 3-4A wrestling tournament. To advance in the postseason, wrestlers have to place in the top 4 of their weight class to continue their journey that we hope will ultimately culminate in a spot at the Individual State Championships at the end of February. We were fortunate to have 7 wrestlers do just that:

106 Justin Louderbough 4th
113 Ben Maco 3rd
126 Jonathan Cardona 4th
132 Janio Cespedes 4th
160 Brandon Holliman 2nd
195 Joshua Williams 3rd
285 Michael McQueen 3rd

The team will be back in action on Wednesday night at Ridge View when we host Mid-Carolina and Heathwood Hall to close out our regular season schedule. On Saturday we will wrestle in the 1st Round of the SCHSL AAAA Playoffs against region foe York when we travel to Eastside High School. This will be the first time the team will wrestle in the playoffs in back-to-back seasons since the 2010 and 2011 postseason.
