Chapin Qualifies 5 for State
On February 20-21, the Chapin Eagles visited Westminster, SC for the Upper State Tournament and returned home with 5 State Qualifiers. The Eagles were lead by First-Place finishers Paul Collingwood at 120 pounds who used a combination strength, quickness, and intelligent wrestling to earn a tense, hard-fought decision, and Trent Hodges at 195 pounds who used quick thinking and cat-like reflexes to record his victory with a pin. Taylor Cabe (126 pounds), Nick Martini (160 pounds), and Austin Jeffords (285 pounds) all earned Fourth-Place finishes. Chapin was one of only two schools to qualify wrestlers in all 14 weight classifications for Upper State.
The State Tournament will be held on February 27-28 in Anderson, SC where eight wrestlers from each weight class will square off to battle for the title of State Champion. Go Eagles.
