Two Caps Medal at 43rd annual WRAL Invitational

Seven Caps wrestled into the second day of the 43rd annual WRAL Invitational Tournament held Friday and Saturday at Athens Drive High School. The individual double-elimination tournament hosted wrestlers from over 30 schools representing 3 states.

Josh Zinner, Nash Philbeck, Braxton May, Di Rahlan and Manny Robinson made it to day two of the tournament which was packed with state placers and ranked wrestlers. In addition, Senior Lamont Burt and Freshman Nic Valdespino each fought their way to the consolation finals with each placing 4th in what is arguably the toughest tournament in the state.

Burt defeated 4A #6 ranked Miles Kent from Panther Creek and took Blake Hohman, 2014 Virginia state runner-up and VMI recruit to overtime during his march to the podium. Valdespino defeated 4A #5 ranked David Bostian (Laney HS) and 4A #8 ranked Ben Long (Alexander Central) to get to the consolation finals as well. The Caps will be in action again on Saturday, January 3rd at the Jaguar Duals at Athens Drive.
