(L-R) Ledger Curl, Deuce Hightower, Issac Willis, Hunter King, Greer Posey, Alexander Muzafarov, Coaches Larry Curl, Chester Proctor

" Deuce Hightower captured his 2nd and 3rd Gold Medals of the season in the 55 and 60 lb weight classes. That makes three championships for him.  Greer Posey captured 1st in the 60lb weight class and 2nd in the 65lb weight class adding a second championship for him. And Alexander Muzafarov bested his performance last week where he didn’t place, by placing 4th in the 50lb wclass and 2nd in the 55.  Ledger Curl and Isaac Willis both captured 1st in their respective divisions and Hunter King had an valiant effort in his matches to wrap up the day with a silver medal." Coach Chester Proctor said.

"As medals were handed out, I was standing off to the side doing the math in my head.  I knew we had earned enough team points to be close, but I wasn’t sure how it was going to end up.  There are so many wrestlers and teams represented that if you’re not keeping track of every match, which is impossible, it’s hard to know for sure how things will shake out.  But seeing the excitement from the kids and fans, which we had many from VHA in attendance, as they announced our third place finish of 13 teams was always a great way to end the day." Proctor stated.

The Eagles prepare this week for West Laurens on Saturday, January 25, 2014.
