Philbeck places at WRAL Holiday Tournament

Nash Philbeck placed 5th Saturday in the toughest High School tournament in the region in a bracket with 30 other wrestlers from NC and VA. Wrestling in the 145lb. weight class, Nash won his first two matches to roll to the semifinals. He then valiantly plowed through the consolation bracket to impressively finish 5th. Nash's season record improves to 17-3.

Also contributing team points to the Broughton cause were Nic Valdespino and Christian Hite. Valdespino who placed 4th this this tournament last year won two matches to make it to the quarterfinals where he was derailed in a close decision by the returning state champion. Going 3-2 in the tournament, Nic improved his season record to 15-3.

Christian also rolled to the quarterfinals and won two big matches in the tournament. Christian runs his season record to 13-6. The Caps are in action again at home Wednesday, January 6th Vs. Sanderson and then January 8-9 at the Boneyard Bash hosted by Jack Britt High School.

Sophomore Nash Philbeck placed 5th at the 
WRAL High School OT invitational 
which has the reputation as the toughest 
high school tourney in the state.
