  1. It was a JV tournament, how are they the best wrestlers in the area?

    Most of there wrestlers got beat pretty bad earlier in the year at an off season tournamnet.

    Ragsdale, Dudley, Northwest, Eastern Guilford, those are the schools with the areas top wrestlers

  2. EGwrestler,

    Nobody said they were the best wrestlers in the area. If you read, or if you can read, this was a rookie tournament which means they were all freshmen wrestling freshmen which means they might be the best freshmen in the area. However, they did participate in a tournament in Lumberton with all grade levels and did pretty well. Why does everybody try to find the things wrong with the Veritas athletes and instead give them a little credit. Their other tournaments have been against older, more experienced wrestlers. Go Veritas wrestlers.
