Wrestling Team Members place in Pierce-Davis Tournament

On December 1, two West Johnston Wildcat wrestlers took home first place medals for winning their respective weight class championships. The 27th Annual Pearce-Davis Wrestling Tournament was hosted at North Pitt High School this past Saturday. Twenty-two teams from schools across North Carolina competed for medals throughout the day. West Johnston's Gavin McKendrick began the tournament as the top seed in his weight class. He won each of his matches, including the final, by pinning his opponent in the final period. Another Wildcat, Ryan Schroer, entered the tournament as the second seed, and upset the top seeded wrestler in the finals to win the title. Congratulations, Wildcat wrestlers!
