With the cancellation of Senior night due to weather, the Jacket wrestlers finished off the season with a 13-11 dual meet record. One of our pre-season goals was to finish with a dual meet record over 50%. Many of our losses came down to 1 match, and the team is already talking about hitting a 75% win record next year.
Sophomore Jacob Speeth (138), Junior Alex Labarre (106), and Senior Captain Darius Burton (195) will be representing Sprayberry at the State Tournament this weekend in Gwinnett. All three had impressive first day matches at Sectionals. Each of them went 2-0 in the first day securing top 6 finishes and taking the pressure off for day 2. They all had tough semi-finals matches and ended up losing a couple close matches in wrestlebacks to finish 5th (Speeth and Burton) and 6th (Labarre). Going in to State, the guys are going to need to win the close matches to make the podium.
