The Highlander Varsity Wrestling team picked up some valuable big-match experience last week in their tri-match against SCHSL powers Blythewood HS & Columbia HS. Sophomore Reagan Olsen inched closer to history, as he collected his 95th career win. Tomorrow night, the team will travel for their final regular-season contest against Camden Military, before the MS wrestlers host their tournament on Saturday.

Next week, the Highlanders will open play in the SCISA State Quarterfinals at Hammond on Wednesday, as they look to make consecutive trips to the State Championship - Make sure to come out and support our wrestlers!
