Wrestling: Another Cap 8 W and Boneyard Podium

Broughton's wrestling team dug a hole for themselves last night at Wakefield but roared back as Senior Jack Elliott's pin midway through the meet was the turning point. Down 33-18, the Caps rattled off 7 match wins in a row to pull out a 44-33 victory over the Cap 8 rival Wolverines. Broughton's record in the conference moves to 3-2. In the win column for the Caps were Nic Valdespino (126 lb), Jack Elliott (132), Michael Knott (138), Nash Philbeck (145), Patrick Maxwell (152), Quadeek Hines (160), Christian Hite (170), and Jasper Lassiter (220).

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.

The Caps are at Southern Durham Saturday at the Spartan 300 dual tournament and face Enloe in a Cap 8 dual meet on Thursday.
