Patrick Maxwell pinned his opponent in the last match of Broughton's opening Cap 8 Conference dual tonight at Wake Forest HS to seal a come-from-behind victory, 41-39. The evening was special and spirited as it was dedicated to the memory of Lamont Burt, Broughton's Senior team captain from last year who tragically passed away over the summer. Clearly inspired, BHS highlights were as follows:
- Dominic Ashford (120 lbs) Win by Fall; wins his 2nd match of season
- Nic Valdespino (126 lbs) Win by Fall; season record 8-0
- Nash Philbeck (145 lbs) Win by Fall; season record 8-0
- Patrick Maxwell (152 lbs) Win by Fall; first varsity win
- Parker Batts (160 lbs) Win by DQ; wins his 3rd match of the season
- Christian Hite (170 lbs) Win by Tech Fall; season record 6-2
The Caps will be in action again this Saturday, at the Green Hope Grapple, an individual bracketed double elimination tournament, and then again on Wednesday, the 9th for a Cap 8 dual meet at home Vs. Leesville Rd.
