Wrestling: Warriors, Cyclones ready to pursue state berths


The local scene will be well represented at Knox Catholic today and Saturday. Both Happy Valley and Elizabethon will have multiple wrestlers competing in the regional meet.

The teams are led by first-year head coaches in Eddie Morrell at Happy Valley and Donnie Shipley at Elizabethon.

It won’t be an easy road for either team, though. Success means going through Pigeon Forge, Greeneville and Alcoa, who are ranked 1, 2 and 4 in the state in A/AA.

Happy Valley, which finished second as a team in the district, has eight wrestlers that are going to the regional, with four of those being seeded in the top eight.
