The four girls that represented Happy Valley high school in the TSSAA state wrestling tournament all came back with new necklaces, just a day after Valentine’s Day. Except instead of charms adorning their neck, they had medals.
“The work was all done by themselves,” Happy Valley head coach Eddie Morrell said.
“It’s an amazing statement they were all in the finals and had a shot at bringing home gold for a state title.”
Freshman Courtney Morrell and junior Jordan Morrell each won gold at 125 pounds and 112 pounds, respectively — while Elisa Bird and Amanda Hennessee each won silver medals in 105 pounds and 130 pounds.
