Wrestling Season Ends on a High Note at State

Wrestling Season Ends on a High Note at State
Posted on 02/26/2019

The THS Wrestling Team had another great year and once again broke records and exceeded expectations.  Starting with Region Duals, the Viking wrestlers were able to knock off Morristown West and Dobyns-Bennett en route to a runner-up finish that qualified them for State Duals.  At  State Duals, the Vikings competed with the top sixteen teams in the state. 

Following the State Duals, the team participated in the Region Individual Tournament, where the Vikings qualified eight wrestlers for State by placing in the top four.  In the finals, THS was five for five with five champions receiving gold medals:  Reece Nelson, Dillon Pendley, Logan Ferguson, Dom Fields, and Gavin Hurley.  Cooper Jenkins and Perry Roller placed third and Tyler Fields fourth.  

With eight wrestlers going in to State, the goal was a top fifteen team placement.  The Vikings well-surpassed that goal with a sixth place team finish!  In addition, THS crowned its first ever two-time State Champion as Dom Fields followed up last year's championship with a second.  Dillon Pendley earned another gold for the team as he also earned a State Championship.  Logan Ferguson had a great tournament and finished third.  Reece Nelson and Gavin Hurley also had very good tournaments, placing in the top eight and were only one round away from earning state medals.  

The THS coaches would like to thank all the THS Students, faculty, and staff, as well as parents and fans for their support this season.  Coach Marshall added that their five seniors, Dillon, Logan, Dom, Gavin, and Cooper, will be sorely missed next season, but they wish them all the best in their journeys.
