Chase Barnes was one of six Eastside wrestlers to win individual state championships.

Wrestlers claim titles

Eight local wrestlers claimed individual state championships during Class AAAA and Class AAAAA competition last week.

Eastside won six of those titles, with Chase Barnes (195 division), Ryan Augustine (160), Bryson Ethington (152), Ben Maholtz (145), Riley Augustine (138) and Tucker Allen (132) each earning Class AAAA championships.

The Blue Ridge baseball team returns six of its nine starters from 2018, in hopes of making another region title run.

Tigers return experience

The Tigers might not be favored to win the region this year, but opposing teams shouldn’t look past them.

The Blue Ridge baseball team will return six of nine starters to the diamond this spring, and Travis Henson’s club is hoping to give some of the Peach Blossom’s top contenders a run for their money.

Wrestlers qualify for state

A number of local wrestlers will compete at the state tournament in Anderson this weekend after qualifying at Upper State last week.

Twenty-four area wrestlers placed in the top four in the qualifying round: seven from Byrnes, 12 from Eastside, three from Blue Ridge and two from Greer.
