While Sullivan East flexed its muscle as the Three Rivers Conference wrestling season opened on Monday night at John Treadway Gym, Elizabethton and Happy Valley were each able to dispose of Sullivan South.
East stomped Happy Valley 60-6 and the Cyclones 53-24.
“It was a growing experience,” Happy Valley coach Eddie Morrell said. “The first match I don’t think the kids knew quite what to expect, and then they went out and learned about being aggressive. Working for your end, and not letting somebody else stop you from that. That’s what wins matches.”
