Philbeck Wins Cap 8; BHS will send 5 to Regionals

Sophomore Nash Philbeck continued his impressive 2016 campaign by winning the Cap 8 Championship at Sanderson High School last weekend. Nash won three matches without a loss in the 145 lb. weight class. Nash runs his record to 28-5 and has earned a 3 seed at the 4A Mideast Regional Tournament next weekend at Cary H.S. where the region's top 16 wrestlers in each weight class will compete. Only the top four placers in each weight class will move on to the 4A State Championship tournament Feb 18-20 at the Greensboro Coliseum.

Senior Jack Elliott wrestled a tremendous tournament as well going 2-1 and reaching the Cap 8 finals. His runner-up achievement in the 138 lb. bracket helped to secure him a spot at the Regionals as well.

Sophomore Nic Valdespino went 2-1 to take 3rd place at the Cap 8 in the 126 lb. class. Nic runs his record to 32-5 and has also secured a 3 seed for the Regional tournament.

Also earning an opportunity to compete at Regionals are Christian Hite 20-8 at 170 lbs. and Jasper Lassiter 14-9 at 220 lbs.
