Panther grapplers finish third in state

  • Thursday, January 31, 2013

File T.J. Wilson (top) won three matches by pinfall during the SCISA Duals Playoffs last weekend. PROVIDED

The Pinewood Prep wrestling team went 2-1 in the SCISA duals playoffs to place third in the state.
This marks the first season Pinewood has fielded a wrestling team but the Panthers did well in the playoffs, defeating Ridge Christian and Orangeburg Prep but falling in a close match to eventual state champion Hammond.
“The team really came together and wrestled very hard,” Pinewood coach Ben Cheatham said. “We started our team competition this year by losing our first match to Orangeburg Prep 42-39 so this was a good measure to see how we progressed from beginning to end.”
After earning a 51-21 victory over Ridge Christian and falling 39-34 to Hammond, the Panthers claimed a 51-24 win last weekend over Orangeburg Prep.
Four Pinewood grapplers were undefeated in the playoffs. Matthew Latham earned three pins in the 113-pound weight class and Tyron Wilson earned two pins at 170 and another at 160. Dallas Dial earned a pin, tech fall and win by forfeit at 182. Wrestling at 126 and 132, Steven Kennedy earned three wins.
This coming weekend, the team travels to Columbia for the SCISA individual state tournament.
