The wrestling team is looking like a serious contender to bring home another state title in 2022. The War Eagles are off to a hot start having captured four tournament titles so far this season including the always tough, multi-state Southern Slam in Taylors, South Carolina.
At the Southern Slam, the War Eagles captured the tournament title over five-time defending state champion and host school Eastside, garnered three individual champions, and a pair of Most Outstanding Wrestlers.
Senior Michael Kilic captured the title at 160 pounds, senior Gunner Filipowicz captured the 170 pound title, and senior Matthew Singleton took home the crown at 182 pounds. Kilic and Singleton were both selected as the Tournament Outstanding Wrestlers.
The War Eagles will stay busy over the holiday break competing in several tournaments and invitationals before preparing for the Area Duals beginning January 8.
