HV wrestlers staying the course

By

Happy Valley’s wrestling program may be on shaky ground, but the Warriors are still battling with state tournament berths on the line.
Timothy Morris, a junior, is the second seed at 120 pounds for the Region 1 Wrestling Tournament on Friday and Saturday at Viking Hall in Bristol. Morris (12-5) didn’t make the state a year ago when he was saddled with an illness, but did as a freshman.
“He’s grown a lot this year,” Happy Valley coach Joe Carter said on Wednesday night. “He started the year and he was having problems with being over-aggressive. He was doing the wrong thing and giving points away.
“Now he’s learning to wrestle within himself. He’s very talented. If he doesn’t give points away he’s a very tough wrestler.”
