Manteo Wresting Team Opens Season at Pierce Davis Invitational

The 2017-18 Redskins Wrestling Team started their season off with the Pierce Davis Invitational Tournament at North Pitt High School. Manteo finished 19th out of 21 schools at the tournament.

Coach Metzinger’s comments following the tournament:

“The first competition of the year always starts off with a lot of unknowns. Had a few guys competing in their first every tournament and veterans that we wanted to see how well they competed. We had some good performances by William, Trent, and Louden. Congrats to Louden for getting his first high school victory!

Coach Nick Fertal has come in and implemented a system into our program called the Big 100. As a coaching staff we want our wrestlers comfortable on our feet. We want to be offensive and attack. But if our opponents tries to take us down, we want to make them pay. Overall I was happy with how we looked on our feet for the 1st time out of the practice room. Monday we have some things to correct but the #Sk1nsMentality was there.

It’s going to be an interesting season for us. Ryan and Wesley are on injured reserve until January. We are moving forward one day at a time. Everything we do is in preparation for  February 9th, the 1A East Region Individual Tournament. We want to peak at the riight time.”
