MHS wrestlers down Indians; Wines ties record

The Middlesex High School wrestling team split its first meet of the season Monday by defeating Northumberland 57-15, and losing 48-36 to King William.

Northumberland had many forfeits in weight classes, but Middlesex won three matches on the mat. Brandon Kearney got his first high school win in the 145-pound weight class with a pin in 3:22. Thomas Norman also got his first win with a 12-5 decision in the 152-pound weight class, and Ean Reed won the 160-pound weight class 12-5.

Cameron Wines recorded his 27th career pin to tie the Middlesex High record.
King William has a strong and experienced team, noted MHS coach Lee Anderson. “We were tied 36-36 with two matches left, and King William performed very strong in those final matches. I was very pleased that we competed solidly against them.”

Against the Cavaliers, Cameron Wines won the 119-pound division with a pin in 3:25. Wines now has 27 career pins, which ties the school record. The pin record is shared by former Charger Nick Hornbeck, who also had 27 career pins. 

“Cameron will break that record for sure this year,” said Anderson.

Other MHS wrestlers to win in the King William match were Chris Mason, who pinned his opponent in 1:36 in the 130-pound weight class; Alex Pratt, who won the 171-pound division with a pin in 2:53; and Bradon Jessup, who won on an injury default.

Middlesex also had three junior varsity winners. Reese Harris won his match in the 130-pound division with a pin in 1:30; Darrien Fisher won a 6-5 decision; and Dylan Norwood won in the 153-pound class with a pin in 1:49.

“I am very happy with the great effort put out by our wrestlers,” said Anderson.

The Chargers will travel to Amelia for a tri-meet on Wednesday, December 10, and to Peninsula Catholic in Newport News on Wednesday, December 17.
