Senior Manny Robinson reached the championship finals in the 170 lbs. class. Robinson has come on very strong in the back half of the season and is poised to make a deep run at Regionals.
Freshman Nash Philbeck ran his record to 28-6, and was the conference runner up. Philbeck won the crowd over in the championship finals before barely falling to his senior ranked opponent 4-3.
Broughton will send 12 wrestlers to compete at the 4A Mideast Regional tournament this Friday and Saturday at Wake Forest High School.
