VARSITY WRESTLING

U.S. Navy Duals in Columbia: Battery Creek placed eighth in the 22-team tournament, going 4-3 during the two-day event. Hilton Head High settled for 11th after going 1-2 in pool play on Friday.

The Dolphins had three wrestlers make the all-tournament team, and all three went 7-0: Josh Green (125 pounds), Bear Childers (215) and David Ratliff (285).

Considering the Dolphins (20-15) forfeited two weight classes in every match, coach Kyle Kimrey was generally pleased with his team's performance.

"It was good, but it wasn't quite the energy level we want," Dolphins coach Kyle Kimrey said. "But after two big emotional matches this week, it was kind of a relaxed atmosphere up there."

Battery Creek wrestles again on Monday, taking on Beaufort High and Stratford at Beaufort High.

Hilton Head High, which opened in a pool with eventual champion Pigeon Forge (Tenn.), won five straight matches to finish up the tournament 6-2.

The Seahawks (25-11) had four wrestlers finish 7-1 at the event: Nick Tennison (112), Label Lewis (119), Campbell Miller (140) and Nick Bautista (189).

Chris Ordonez (135) went 6-2, Matt Johns (130) was 5-2, and Seth Anthony (152) and Luke Barsness (215) were 5-3 for Hilton Head High, which hosts Battery Creek on Wednesday in a match that should decide the Region 7-AAA championship.
