Caps Wrestling Kicks Off Campaign with Jam-Packed Week

The Caps wrestling squad hit the mat last week with a full slate of matches on the schedule. The team is young but boasts a strong core of returners to continue to build the program.

Varsity Returners with 2014-15 Records are:
Nash Philbeck (So. 32-10), Nic Valdespino (So. 32-7), Jack Elliott (Sr. 25-16), Christian Hite, (So. 15-7), Andrew Maxwell (Jr. 8-15), and Jasper Lassiter (Jr. 14-12). The Caps will also be relying on big contributions from newcomers to the starting lineup: Parker Batts, Jr., Michael Knott, So. and Newman Davis, Fr.

The Caps kicked off the season on Tuesday with a dual at Green Hope followed by a grueling dual meet tournament at Wilson Fike on Saturday where BHS wrestled five times throughout the day vs. Ayden Grifton, Aycock, Farmville Central, Beddingfield and North Pitt.  Although BHS finished the week 2-4, bright spots include:

Nash Philbeck: 6-0, 4 pins, 1 tech. fall
Nic Valdespino: 6-0, 3 pins, 1 tech. fall
Jack Elliott: 5-1, 4 pins
Jasper Lassiter: 5-1, 4 pins
Christian Hite: 5-1, 3 pins
Michael Knott: 4-2, 3 pins, 1 tech. fall

Full results can be found here. The Caps are in action again Monday night at Chapel Hill High School.
