The ninth-ranked Indian Land High wrestling team posted a 4-0 mark in the Region IV-AA Duals at Cheraw High School on Saturday Jan. 18.
The Warriors highlighted their 4-0 showing with a 37-36 win over host Cheraw.
IL, knowing it was going to forfeit four weight classes going into the match, needed a total team effort.
IL’s Dalen Byerley, No. 1 in Class AA at 120, stepped up a weight class and pinned Cheraw’s Luke Curtis, No. 1 in Class AA at 126, in the second period.
George Morris defeated Cheraw’s Robert Kelly, 8-0 by a major decision in a very physical, heated match. Warriors’ seniors Devin Curtsinger and David Ovecka won by pins.
Sophomores Will Van Hoose and Tomas Seamon, along with freshman Dylan Curtsinger each posted a decision.
The Warriors have four wrestlers ranked in the latest Class AA-A individual rankings on SCmat. The IL grapplers include Dalen Byerley, No. 1 at 120, Taylor Pendleton, No. 3 at 132, Devin Curtsinger, No. 1 at 152, and Eric Komorous, No. 5 at 182.
