Lugoff-Elgin High School vs Clover High School
33 46

In one of the craziest days of wrestling in recent memory, the Demons end the day at 2-2. We started the day with one of the biggest dual wins in program history with a 36-27 win over 5X Defending State Champion Eastside!! That result was followed by a bit of a letdown in a 46-33 loss to Clover. In a strong rebound performance, the Demons defeated the #1 team in the State in 5A with 36-35 win over Byrnes! The roller coaster day culminated with a 37-31 controversial loss to a very sold Travelers Rest squad. The team has wrestled the most brutal schedule in South Carolina and now stands at 12-5 on the season.
Individually, the Demons have plenty to be proud of! At 106, Sophomore Jeremiah Barzanti continues to be clutch. He went 4-0 on the day with a match-clenching pin against Byrnes! Sophomore Brandon Vinson was solid in going 3-1. Senior Brice Carron improved to 17-0 on the season and continues to beat good wrestlers. Freshman Gavin Priebe at 138 continues to grind and battle for the team! Senior Kaleb Bah went 3-1 with a solid day. Sophomore Ethan Korn stepped and performed well. Freshman Ben Stoner came from behind a recorded a HUGE pin in the win over Byrnes! Senior Ethan Hix showed everyone that he’s a TEAM GUY by cutting to wrestle 197 and battling his tail off all day! Senior Scotty Dean had a huge win over Eastside and went 3-1 on the day. Junior Karrington Charles was equally impressive going 4-0 on the day and remains undefeated on the season!!
