Three wrestlers and a coach from the Summerville area have been selected to participate in the 2014 North/South Wrestling Classic.
The all-star event, being held March 7-8 at North Myrtle Beach High School, brings the top senior high school wrestlers from across the state together for showcase matches. One of the big lures of the event is it provides a venue where wrestlers from different classifications can go head-to-head, something they rarely do during the season.
Summerville’s Tyler Fachko and Chad Wood, as well as Ashley Ridge’s Christian Cuttino will wrestle for the 4A/1A South team comprised of grapplers from the lower part of the state from Class AAAA and Class A schools.
Other Lowcountry wrestlers selected for the team are Jake Sharp and Kentrell Seabrook of Beaufort, Levi Joly and Mike Myerink of Bluffton, Ivan Wiggins of Military Magnet and Ben Crutchfield of Wando.
Green Wave assistant coach Reuben Daniels is one of four coaches who will coach that team and the 3A/2A South team. Others selected to coach the South all-stars are Cody Slaughter of Sumter, Matt Anderson of St. James and Jerry Norbo of Edisto.
Lowcountry representatives on the 3A/2A South team include Mario Delarosa of Bishop England, Brian LaBean and Isaiah Sloan of Battery Creek, Haven Horlback of Hanahan, Frank Cromwell of James Island, Josh McDermett of Academic Magnet, Zorrie Greene of Stall and Bernard Harmon of Timberland.
Beginning at 6 p.m. Friday, the 4A/1A North Team will wrestle against the 3A/2A South Team and the 3A/2A North Team will wrestle against the 4A/1A South Team. The losers of each dual will then wrestle for third place and the winners of each dual will wrestle for first place at noon on Saturday.
Tickets will be available at the gate.
