Last weekend, Broughton sent 4 of its varsity wrestlers to compete in the meatgrinder Boneyard Bash individual tournament at Jack Britt High School in Fayetteville. Nash Philbeck avenged a previous season loss by beating Panther Creek's Miles Kent in the semi-finals to get to the finals in the 145 lb. weight class. Nash placed second losing only by minor decision to Cary's #1 ranked undefeated and returning state champ, Kollin Wade. Nash's season record is now 19-4 and he is ranked #8 in 4A at 145 lbs.
Nic Valdespino pinned his way to the semi-finals where he faced 3A #1 undefeated Harrison Campbell from West Brunswick. After a tight 4-2 loss vs. Campbell, Nic fought back to win the consolation bracket to place 3rd. Nic's record now stands at 22-4 and he is ranked #9 in 4A at 126 lbs.
Christian Hite picked up two huge wins to reach the semi finals as well. Christian placed 6th in the Boneyard and now has 16 wins on the season wrestling at 170 lbs.
