The Blazers were competed short-handed last week, and had spot teams 5 matches before taking the mat. On December 14th, team dropped matches to #6 Lugoff-Elgin 72-9 and #15 Gilbert 60-16. Grapplers who took home victories were Renza Waiters, James Harris, Nick Levett, Jurnee Dunbar and Deon Wallace. The team had better showings on December 15th when they took on #1 ranked Cardinal Newman and came up one match and penalty short in a 48-35 loss. Once again, the Blazers started the match short-handed, and the team was down 24-0 before racing back in what became a tough match. The Blazers also took on Richland Two rival, Blythewood High. The shorthanded Blazers also had to spot them a 24-0 lead. Though they wrestled tough, the Blazers dropped the match to the Bengals. Congratulations to Hunter Houston and Lorenza Waiters for their first victories by pin! Other great performers were Xavier Houston, and Deon Wallace. Also, congratulations to Clark Bolland for eating all of the team snacks!
