Comets grapplers win pair in Albemarle Invitational Tourney

The Halifax County High School wrestling team picked up a pair of wins this past Saturday, defeating Spotswood High School and Charlottesville High School in the Albemarle High School Invitational Tournament in Charlottesville.

Halifax County High School defeated Spotswood High School 42-18 and topped Charlottesville High School 42-18.

The Comets were very competitive in losses to Monticello High School and Western Albemarle High School and had a few bright spots in a 30-point loss to tournament host Albemarle High School.

“There were a lot of bright spots,” noted Comets Head Coach Brady Taylor.

“One of the good things was that in the actual number of matches that we wrestled we won more matches than we lost, which is what you set out to do every time out. Most of the kids got to wrestle at least four times, which gave them an opportunity to gain valuable experience.”

Another positive note to the tournament was that despite having to forfeit five weight classes, the Comets were competitive against all five teams.

“We ended up 2-3 for the tournament, but we very easily could have been 4-1,” Taylor pointed out.

“I thought we had a shot at Albemarle, but we were two starters down and were wrestling with only 10 kids. That made a difference in that match.”

Two Comets wrestlers, 160-pounder James Anderson and 132-pounder Krunal Patel both went undefeated with perfect 5-0 marks. Three other wrestlers, 170-pounder Brian Debow, 126-pounder Necco Lawrence and 106-pounder Camey Conner, were 4-1 on the day.

Another pair of Comets wrestlers, 195-pounder Ezra Walker and 285-pounder Jairus Marable, were 3-2 on the day.

It was an especially big day for two Comets wrestlers who scored their first wins in a contested match.

Conner pinned Albemarle High School’s Trenton Snead and Thomas Satterfield, who competes in the 138-pound weight class, pinned Charlottesville High School wrestler Jonah Wermter.

“It was great to see both of them get a win,” Taylor said.

“Camey almost had two wins. She almost pinned her opponent from Charlottesville High School. Camey just got caught in a bad position. She got reversed onto her back and couldn’t get out of it. 

“Thomas,” Taylor continued, “ is a small 138. He’s been wrestling up a weight class this season. It was good to see him finally get a win.”

The Comets were scheduled to be back in action last night, facing Bassett High School, Magna Vista High School and Patrick County High School in a Piedmont District quad event at Halifax County High School.

On Saturday, the Comets are scheduled to compete in the annual Border Clash at Magna Vista High School.

“These will be two good events for us,” Taylor said.

“If we go out and wrestle and compete the way we have been, good things will keep happening. These will be two good events because it will give us a gauge of where we are as we get ready for the Piedmont District and Conference 16 tournaments.”

The Comets’ season record stands at 6-13 overall in dual matches.
