Varsity Wrestling · Eagle Grapplers qualify 5 to Lower State


In a very strange and on- again, off – again season, Beaufort traveled to May River for the Region 7 AAAA Qualifier and the right to advance to the Lower State Meet on February 27th at Bluffton High School. The Region Qualifier saw 5 Eagles earn their spot for the right to wrestle at the Lower State Tournament. They are, as follows: 145 lbs – Peter Adam Burvenich (2nd Seed), 152 lbs – Mathew Durrance (3rd Seed), 160 lbs – Jeremiah Simmons (2nd Seed), 170 lbs – Colton Phares (Second Seed), and 195 lbs – Theo Washington (1st Seed). All but Burvenich have been here before as a Lower State Qualifier, as Durrance, Simmons, Phares, and Washington are all returning state qualifiers, so the Eagles have high hopes that all 5 will represent Beaufort at the State Finals in March.
