Junior Hayden L., a third year wrestler at Holston High School, acquitted herself well at the State Wrestling Finals in Salem, Virginia. Hayden, who wrestles in the 105 lb. weight class, fought her way to a 5th place finish. With an impressive 35-17 record for the year, her statistics served notice that she was a force to be taken seriously.
The state tournament was held on February 17th and 18th at the Civic Center in Salem, Virginia. Along with Hayden, Coach Tyler Whitt took 138 lb. competitor Sean L. and 220 lb. contender Jacob J. Sean and Jacob, both seniors, have enjoyed successful careers during their time at Holston High School. Making it all the way to the state tournament was a testament to their years of hard work. Congratulations to these scholar-athletes and their coach.
