Grappling Gobbler Results

Ben Whitright finished the day in 5th place, and Bradley Whitright earned a 3rd place finish.

Bryce Meredith. . . On a Roll!

Bryce Meredith is a special young man, he is polite, he is respectful, and he is a long time member of Team Braves Wrestling Club. Last month I was very excited when I found out that Bryce had earned the right to represent the NC State Wolfpack at 133 pounds. I have to admit that I expected Bryce to have some success because of the type of athlete he is, but I am truly amazed with how well he is doing.

Meredith

 

On Saturday (November 22nd) Bryce got his his first taste of wrestling in college, Meredith came out strong, going 2 – 0 in the first two duals of the season. In his season opener (November 22nd) Bryce defeated Tyler Ziegler of Gardner-Webb 8-2, and then came back later that afternoon to beat Eric Montoya 4-1 when the NC State Wolfpack faced off against the Cornhuskers.

On Sunday (November 23rd)  NC State hosted the Wolfpack Duals. In his first match Sunday Morning Bryce scored a Major decision against Felix Casa del Valle of Lindsey Wilson, beating him 10-2. Next on the schedule was a battle against American University’s Josh Terao, who was able to give Bryce his first defeat at the collegiate level winning the bout 9 – 2. After suffering his first defeat Meredith still had to come back out for one more dual, his final bout of the weekend he defeated Asher Goodwin of Pembroke by fall at 4:30.

On Saturday (November 29th) the NC State wrestling team won two of its three duals while competing at the Journeymen/Asics Northeast Duals. The Wolfpack started with a 36-0 win over Kutztown, then downed Hofstra 27-9, and ended the day with a narrow 20-13 loss to #3 Cornell. Meredith was one of only three NC State wrestlers to go 3-0!

Thunder Throwdown Results

This past Saturday was an awesome day, Team Braves had 14 young wrestlers take to the mat at East High School for some great competition. Several members of our coaching staff were able to watch and coach these young athletes throughout the day and we were all happy to see that our athletes were having a lot of fun.
