Veritas Wrestlers Compete in Falcon Fury Tournament

Seven Veritas Sports Academy wrestlers competed in the Falcon Fury Tournament at Southeast Guilford on Saturday.

T.J. Sachs, Joey Wilson, Curtis Smith, Isaac Starnes, Nick Nawrocki, Jason Leonard and Matt Ardoin participated in the round robin event, the first competition for the Warriors. Freshman Daniel Lile was unable to participate due to injury suffered in practice.

Led by freshman Nick Nawrocki with four wins including three pins giving him the silver medal in his weight class, Jason Leonard, Joey Wilson and Curtis Smith all took bronze medals in their respective weight classes. “It was time to wrestle, not teaching time” said Coach Jim Georgevich. “This was a time for me to see what each wrestler had and fine tune their skills.”

The Warriors return to the mat on October 11 in the Panther Open in Eden, NC.
